Ravishankar and Poornima have 2 daughters. Elder daughter Aradhya is a 3.5-year-old kid, who is unable to hear and speak due to a birth defect. When Aradhya didn't start speaking even at the age of 1 year like normal kids, parents thought that their kid might be a little slow in speaking.
Hailing from a poor background, Ravishankar works in a Hotel in Mangalore city and a single breadwinner of the family. The COVID-19 situation gave an additional hit to the family. Using the family savings, parents arranged for hearing aids, basic checkups and tried speech therapy in "Idham Speech-Language & Hearing Clinic, Moodabidri". Even after multiple months of speech therapy, there was no improvement in Aradhya's hearing and speaking abilities.
Then the family contacted Manasa Cochlear Implant and ENT Centre, Bangalore. After detailed analysis, doctors recommend Cochlear Implant Surgery. The surgery costs close to Rs.14,00,000, it is not possible to arrange this huge amount due to the financial condition of the family.
Requesting everyone to come forward and support a young kid to live a normal life like everyone else. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this with your friends and family.
