Story


"I am seven months pregnant and worried about the child in my womb and the other ailing child holding my hand. I can't lose any of them. They are my world. Now the doctors are pressing us to get Arpit urgently operated on before the situation worsens, but we are empty-handed." Kajal, mother.

Arpit was born with a large hole in his heart. Five-year-old Arpit is the most familiar face in hospitals as he has been diagnosed with Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) since birth. He has a hole in the wall that separates the heart's lower chambers and allows blood to pass from the left to the right side.


His hands and feet turned blue due to a lack of blood supply. As the VSD opening is significant, he finds it hard to breathe and sometimes falls short of breath. He can't even play like other kids as he gets quickly tired. His abnormal heart rhythms and infection make his condition more vulnerable. To close the gap between the heart chamber, he immediately needs VSD closure and an arterial switch.

"I understand the immediate need for surgery to save my child. I am running in all possible directions despite all hardships to collect funds for his surgery. But the poverty is putting my child's life in danger and giving me sleepless nights. I am also worried about my pregnant wife and unborn child. I don't know how I will manage all this and save my child?" Paramjeet, father.


Doctors insisted on undergoing surgery as he developed chronic pneumonitis because of the high grade 5 altered breathing condition. He is losing on life every minute because of severe liver infection, loss of appetite, and anaemia.

Little Arpit is undergoing a lung fluid tapping procedure and needs multiple admissions and discharges over a month and comprehensive pre - and postoperative ICU/NICU care. His parents need funds to continue treatment and save their son's life.


"I live in fear of losing my child. How will I survive without him? We visited multiple clinics, and everyone asked for a massive sum of money to save my son. We are empty-handed. Please help us." Kajal, mother.

Paramjeet, the father of Arpit, is a labourer, and his mother, Kajal, is a housewife. She is seven months pregnant but always stressed due to Arpit's deteriorating condition. His father earns a pittance and struggles to make ends meet. The parents cry inside and consider themselves helpless. Arpit's treatment needs money that his parents don't have. That's why parents are seeking help.


Come forward and save Arpit's life by donating for his treatment.
