He is a childhood friend of mine..
Srinivas Anavilla, lives in Kokkirapalli village, Visakhapatnam district, works as a priest in the Shiva temple in the village.
A 39 year old happy family man survived with wife and an 8 year old son.
Recently he is diagnosed with defective kidneys where both kidneys are failing and doctors have advised kidney transplantation..
His mother had the same problem of both kidney failure and she had passed away a few years back, she could not undergo the surgery due to their economic status. Srinivas did whatever he could in getting her medical help. He is married to distant relative from his mother's side.. his wife's father also had the same complaint with kidneys.. this is a hereditary ailment that he has acquired and with no fault of his..
He is getting treatment at Apollo Visakhapatnam..
The doctors have said that the treatment will cost him INR 11 lakh out of which 3 lakhs are expected from the Government, he is in need of INR 8 lakhs for the surgery, leave aside the after surgery needs.. The village is trying to gather funds for him, there is an instance recently where a farmer has given INR 40k by selling his produce for this season..
Funds are getting collected but in small sums.. he is in need of those of you who can support him with your contribution.. we do not want to lose him like he did his mother..
He and his family will be ever indebted to your kindness and contribution.. no amount is small and will sure help the cause.. help him get his life back.. thank you..
