Ashok and Anuradha have been married for 1 Year and 5 months now. While their marriage has mostly been a happy one. They were very happy that they were giving birth to their child. As a farmer, Ashok tried to accommodate the best that he can do for his family.
We thought we had the healthy child
“That night we realized that our child is in trouble and rushed to the nearest hospital. The doctor has advised some tests and couldn't find anything wrong with the baby." - Says Ashok.
"We were advised to get admitted to the hospital. We have admitted to the hospital immediately even after 4 days there is no improvement in the condition of the child. The doctor has advised us to take the baby to a better facility in Hyderabad. In the mind, we had a thought that we might lose the baby.” - says Anuradha
We rushed from the hospital the baby is treated to a better facility in the nearby city hoping that the baby will recover.
The poor baby needs to stay in the ICU for another month or two but...
“...I just can’t afford it. I’ve been taking care of my wife and mother all by myself. What I make as a farmer is always just enough to tide us for a month. I have no savings. Now, I’ve already spent lakhs of rupees by borrowing money from our relatives. But he needs another Rs. 11 lakhs! What am I going to do?!
