Story


Every person is not privileged enough to have easy access to all the necessities in life. Persons with disabilities are segregated in our society from birth, especially if they are born to low-income families. They have great difficulty in getting access to medical care, education and rehabilitation. Ram Ashok and Gomti Devi seek support for their one-month-old baby Ankit suffering from a rare birth defect.

"I can't see correctly, and my wife is not mentally stable. I am currently at my wife's house, and my mother in law is taking care of my son. Baby Ankit is our first child, and he is suffering from a rare condition. I am very disturbed, and we don't want to lose him. He is our only hope for the future. We can't even imagine our life without him. We want to save him at any cost. Please save him, Please..." - Ram Ashok pleading for help.


Baby Ankit was born on 4 August 2021 to Gomti Devi (Mother) and Ram Ashok (Father), who never knew the delivery of their child would turn out so frightful. It took one and a half hours, and Baby Ankit could be saved after many complications.

One-month-old baby Ankit suffers from Shoulder Dystocia; a problematic birth condition caused due to the positioning of the baby's shoulder inside the womb. The baby is unable to feed milk. The only way to feed him is through a spoon. His body is too weak as compared to any other child of his age. He is also suffering from anaemia. His body doesn't have enough blood to support a healthy survival.


Shoulder Dystocia is a rare medical condition that occurs just before the baby is fully delivered. It happens when the head has exited the birth canal, but the shoulder gets caught behind the mother's pubic bone near the end of the birth canal. With a stuck shoulder, the natural procedure becomes complex. Shoulder Dystocia is considered an obstetrical emergency, also known as "Turtle neck". Due to this condition, Ankit's trachea has stretched, creating a life-threatening situation for him.

"His parents can't take care of him as my son-in-law can't see correctly, and my daughter is mentally unstable. I am also too old to support them, but I am adding as much as I can. We can't even afford proper meals, and his treatment is beyond our imagination. If you can help, we will be very grateful to you. We will pray for your well-being throughout our leftover life. God will bless you. Please save our only hope, baby Ankit..." - says baby Ankit's grandmother.


Ankit's father, Ram Ashok, works as a labourer at the brick manufacturing plant. Despite his disability, he works day and night to feed his family. Baby Ankit's mother, Gomti Devi, is mentally unstable and unfit to look after her child. Gomti's mother looks after baby Ankit and feeds him. They find it hard to afford even two meals a day. The cost of medical treatment is beyond their imagination.

"I am shattered seeing my only child in such condition. His health is worsening with every passing day. We have no money for his treatment. It's so difficult for me to work due to my limited visibility. Would you please help me? I want to see this beautiful world through my son's eyes in future. I can't let my child die." Ankit's father is requesting help.


Life is hard for Ankit's family, hard hit by fate. His father hopes for his son's better health and a successful future. Your support can save this family, and they can survive peacefully. We request you to please support baby Ankit's treatment in all possible ways.
