7-year-old Ragini is a special child who was born blind. She has a 20mm hole in her heart and without an immediate surgery, there is a danger of the hole tearing more and becoming 50mm wide. Before that happens, her parents need to get her a surgery that will close the hole. Her father Lokanath is a daily-wage worker who paints homes and her mother Munmun takes care of her all day.

Her mother is Ragini's best friend
Blind from her birth, Ragini speaks very less and spends her days listening to music and playing quietly with her toys. “Mummy” is one of the few words that Ragini says. It is what she says when she is hungry, lonely, sad or happy. She starts crying if her mother is not around to reassure her.

“I can't have any more children. She is the only child I will ever have. She is more important to me than my own life. She lives a lonely life – unable to see or speak. But that has not stopped her from being a wonderful, loving child. She deserves a chance to live.” – Munmun

Despite taking the best care of their daughter, Ragini's life is in danger
Munmun's pregnancy was a difficult one, and after Ragini's birth, the doctor told this couple they couldn't have any more children. Ragini is their only child and they have both lavished loving care on her upbringing and health. Lokanath works in two jobs so he can take care of Ragini's health since she was born without vision and had a heart problem.

“For whatever reason, God has blessed us with a delicate child. We love her so much – we are begging everyone we know for help saving her. We can't think of what we will do without her. We have taken her to so many hospitals since she was born – and we will do everything we can to save her.” – Munmun

How you can help
The hole in Ragini's heart has become dangerously big. She needs an urgent surgery to survive. Her parents have spent all their savings and even sold off anything valuable they had for her health. They have lost count of how much they have spent and now only want to save her from painfully succumbing to a hole in her heart.

Your contribution will save this innocent child.
