Conjoined Twins Need A Surgery To Live A Normal Life

These conjoined twins in India's Uttar Pradesh are unable to get the urgent surgery they need to survive, due to lack of funds. 


The twins were born in November 2019 in Kushinagar village Balua. They have difficulty walking together. Both of their spines and necks have also started to bear the brunt of the condition.

A very rare phenomenon, the conjoined twins' occurrence is estimated to range from 1 in 49,000 to 1 in 189,000 births, with a somewhat higher incidence in Southwest Asia and Africa. Approximately half of the births are stillborn, and an additional one-third die within 24 hours.


Due to economic constraints coupled with the coronavirus pandemic, the twins' family is unable to get their surgery done for these twins who happen to be joined at their abdominal area.

In an interview, the 26-year-old father of the twins- Chandan said,  "I work as a farmer as well as a labourer. I earn Rs 9,000 to 10,000 in a month working every odd job I can get my hands on. I was very happy to become a father to them, but when I realised the condition they were suffering from, I was heartbroken. I am unable to give them the upbringing they deserve due to their condition."


He further added, "Most doctors in my hometown refused to operate on my set of twins saying they cannot take the risk. I then approached a hospital in Lucknow when the twins were about seven days old. They told me that the kids were too young for the operation and that I come after they turn at least three-months-old. Now my kids are over 11 months old but I have not been able to gather the required amount of funds for their surgery. Doctors have stated that the procedure will become complicated after the children complete a year of age."



With folded hands, Chandan has requested people to come forward and help him give a life to his children that they deserve. Time is running out and he is in immediate need of the funds to conduct the operation within a month's time.

Dear Supporters,

This is in continuation to the last update you received on the conjoined twins' fundraiser-

As mentioned in the previous update, the family had informed us that many individuals, a local organisation, and a hospital have pledged to extend support to the children. We were informed that the twins will receive treatment in King George medical college, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, and all expenses will be covered by the Govt schemes and local organisations.

Since the funds are not required for the intended purpose and as per Milaap’s protocol, we will be offering 100% of donations as a refund to all the donors by default.

For those who donated in Indian Rupees, you’ll receive an email (or WhatsApp message / SMS) with the refund details tomorrow.  You’ll receive the refund amount to your bank account (or UPI account) based on your preferred choice, within the same day.

For those who donated in foreign currencies (other than Indian rupees), please respond to this message for a refund. Our team will initiate this immediately and the refund will reflect in your bank account or card statement in 3-5 working days.

We do understand that some of you would like to re-route your donation to another child in need of funds urgently.  We are sharing the details of one such campaign.

8-Year-old Abhiram needs liver transplantation in the next 3 days. His father was a driver before the pandemic hit and his mother is a homemaker. The parents have exhausted all their savings now and are struggling to support his treatment expenses.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your generosity. We spoke to the family on the next steps. The story of the conjoined twins has been widely circulated and has been receiving overwhelming support. The parents informed that many individuals, a local organisation, and hospital have pledged to extend support to the children.

Priyanka, mother of the twins, informed that they have a medical consultation next week post which they can confirm the next steps of treatment. Milaap will contact the family next week for these details and share an update to all the donors.

We would like to highlight that in case of any surplus funds, the donors will be informed first and then the funds would be transferred to the family for the welfare of the children. If the funds are not required for the intended purpose, the donors will be informed and given the option of a refund.

The twins are doing well, however, due to the COVID situation, their health is being strictly monitored.

Thank you once again for your support. We will keep you posted.
