This is Kaushik(Dinesh's Friend) and Naveenkumar Murugan(Brother), We are here to raise funds for my brother’s preemie("Preterm baby") who is struggling in NICU
and COVID-19 affected family.
My Brother, Dineshkumar Murugan , who was married to a lovable wife "Hamsa" 7 years ago was leading a happy middle-class life.
As like every married couple, they were expecting a baby since their wedding but God had other plans,
they had gone through different surgeries, fertility treatments, 2 times IVF and spent all their savings and earnings to support the medical treatment.
After going through these painful journey, the 3rd IVF attempt was successful. And yes! It was twins.
However, Doctor advised her to be in bed-rest throughout the pregnancy to avoid any miscarriage.
Basically, My brother works in Chennai. Since there were increasing COVID-19 cases in Chennai, he took very bold decision to shift everything to remote village in Dharmapuri District where his in-law lives.
They were following all the precautionary measures to stay away from deadly COVID-19 virus. But, somehow sister-in-law were showing up COVID-19 symptoms that crushed all their hope into pieces.
On June 16th, 2021, she tested positive for COVID-19 and immediately admitted to ICU ward, Narayana hrudayalaya hospital(Bangalore, India).
Two of their family members including her mother were affected and the complete family is going through lot of stress and financial crisis for the treatment.
Due to the infection, one of the girl baby died in the womb and Doctors advised us to go for C-Section to save other baby while she was at her 29th week of pregnancy at that time.
And, She gave birth to a preemie at 28 weeks gestation arriving unexpectedly 2 months early with 1.2kg weight.
Hence, the baby boy requires Neonatal care (NCIU) for 6-8 Weeks which is very expensive in India during this pandemic.
We sincerely hope and pray that no one goes through the pain and suffering that Dinesh’s family is facing today.
Until now, they have spent about Rs.7,90,000/17,000 AUD. We have arranged the amount from savings & family and friends.
We have attached all the bills as of today.
In the next few days, they need Rs.20,00,000/40,000 AUD more for further treatment.
We are really obliged for every contribution during this difficult time.
No contribution is big or small - please do whatever you can to help.
How the funds will be used:
The entire contribution will be directly transferred to his bank account for meeting the financial needs.
