Story

Since the last three decades, my father, Mr. Chandra Ballabh Benjwal, has led various projects (including oral polio and cholera vaccine) at Bharat Immunologicals and Biologicals Corp. Ltd. Till the 19th of April, 2021, he was working day and night to kick-start the production of Covid-19 vaccine at his company, prioritizing the need of the hour over his own well being. Two days later, he developed multiple symptoms, and an RTPCR confirmed him covid positive. For the next 21 days, he battled severe lung infection (90% infected lungs) at a hospital, and just when we were beginning to get hopeful about recovery, he was diagnosed with the dreaded Mucormycosis (Black Fungus). We had to shift hospitals to save his life. Since then, he has been fighting both black fungus and lung infection, and has been now put on ventilator. The doctors have declared his situation very critical, and his treatment plan is extremely complex owing to his diabetic condition. He needs the scarce and exponentially expensive Liposomal Amphotericin B injections everyday for 24 days, not to mention the multiple tests, medical investigations and countless medicines he needs on a daily basis. The medical expenses have taken a serious toll on our family's financial situation, we have already exhausted all our resources, but my father still needs at least 20 more days of hospitalisation. We estimate a need of nearly INR 30 Lacs to continue the treatment and other financial assistance. Your support, however small it may be, can help save my father and help our family avoid financial ruin. Warm wishes are equally welcomed. Please help us save the vaccine man, who has dedicated his whole life saving others.
