Dear Supporters,

I am Sudhakar, a Milaap Open fellow in Bangalore. I spoke to Suhail’s father, Bahadur Ullah Shah, on 22nd July. Suhail’s surgery was  successful and he got discharged from the hospital in the second week of June.

His father said, “It was almost a matter of life and death for my son. There was no way we could have afforded this expensive operation. Because of your prayers and blessings, he is now healthy. He has started running and playing around with his brothers, sisters, and friends. I thank each and every one of you who contributed towards the cost of the surgery.”

He has been advised not to take up any strenuous activity for 15 days post discharge from the hospital. He has recovered fast after the surgery. Suhail has joined school in the 1st standard this month. The doctor has advised a routine check up for Suhail every month at Manipal Hospital.
