Story


"My child was just six when my husband set himself on fire and left us alone. I could not recover from that loss, and after four years, my son caught fire. God spared my child's life but left him in intolerable pain. I have no money to feed him. How will I afford his treatment? Please, God, help me save my son." Sushila Devi, mother.

Abhishek was ten-year-old when an unfortunate incident burned his body. He played with his friends while attempting to move some items off the shelf where the lighted oil lamp was placed. He suddenly caught fire as the lighted lamp fell on his clothes. He was screaming for help, wrapped in fire. His mother dragged him out of the fire and fainted after seeing his condition. He was rushed to a city hospital as the local hospital refused. His mother borrowed money on interest for treatment. She managed to save his life but couldn't provide an escape from misery due to a lack of funds.


19-year-old Abhishek's neck and chest are severely burnt, causing B/L Adhesions of facial and neck muscles. He also experiences difficulty in speech, oesophagal atrophy and atrial fibrillation. His chest muscle dystrophy has further led to pneumonia and other burn patches on his stomach, thighs, and hands. He is dealing with Respiratory Acidosis, Atrial Fibrillation, Optic Nerve Compression, and Nephrotic Syndrome. This requires multiple steps of surgery.

After the incident, his brain doesn't work correctly. He is dealing with neurological and physiological issues. Therefore he is entirely dependent on his mother. Heat pricks his body like a needle. Poor boy sticks to bed all day as he has lost the confidence to face the world. He needs immediate medical treatment to stand by his mother, battling alone with life's struggles.


"I take my young child to the loo, bath him and feed him. He can't bear the heat, his burns pain. I can't do anything. My hands are empty. Moneylenders knock at my door every day. I am dying with guilt and poverty every second. I pray to God to end the miseries of my life." Sushila Devi, mother.

He needs significant surgeries to have a better life, but his mother can't afford it.

Abhishek's mother, Sushila Devi, works as a labourer day and night as her shoulders are overburdened with responsibilities. Her work depends on availability. She has to repay the debt, feed her child and arrange money for the child's treatment solely. In 2005 her husband left her alone forever with the baggage of debt. He was an alcoholic who gave her nothing except debt. She feels helpless looking at her ailing child. Therefore, she needs urgent medical treatment.


"I want to look normal like other children. I am so helpless with pain and burning on my skin. My mother has suffered a lot; I want to help her. Please help me. I am in dire need of treatment." Abhishek.

Abhishek is in a lot of pain; even moving his head hurts greatly. But more than pain, he has a pang of overbearing guilt looking at his mother. His mother has not seen a day of happiness since she got married. She was bothered by her alcoholic husband, who left her alone with the baggage of debt. Now she is begging to save her son.
