Some of you may know that I have kidney disease. Over time, my kidney disease has gotten worse causing my kidneys not to work well enough to keep me alive. This is what I am facing now, and my treatment options are limited. For last few months I have been going to hospital to hospital and finally my Doctor at Medica North Bengal Clinic at Siliguri has asked me to go for early operation.
People who don’t know me, my name is Alisha Topno and I am pursuing B.A. in European studies (Major in French) from Visva Bharati University – Shantiniketan. I was born and brought up in a tea garden of north Bengal, called Bhatpara Tea Garden near Kalchini. Both my parents work in the tea garden as plantation labour and my mother has been sick for last one year. I have two younger sisters and one younger brother and all go to regular schools and college.
For the last few months for my treatment a local youth based group called Prayatn was helping me with expenditures. Today as I went to see my doctor in Siliguri he advised me to go for kidney operation and he gave a estimate of 50000 (RS).
My family’s financial condition is not healthy and I will find it difficult to ask my parents for the money. A friend of mine from Prayatn has asked me to go with Milaap foundering option. So here I am seeking your help and support. Please help me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. If you consider helping me, I would be happy to tell you more about my story and explore the process of determining.
However, I know with COVID 19 situation it may not be the right time for everyone — but you can still help!
At the very least I want to bring awareness to kidney disease and. I am hopeful my efforts will help me receive the needed amount.
