Durga Didi could not afford to get any recommended surgeries for Deepa during her infancy, which has made the surgical process complicated now.
Deepa had to be hospitalised urgently last year since she has a partially blocked nose and cannot inhale from one nostril.
The doctors have now advised for following surgeries -
1) Cleft Lip nose corrective surgery - 2 lakhs
2) Cleft lip and maxilla corrective surgery - 1.5 lakhs
The doctors have been kind enough and have offered to waive off their own fee and the hospital fee. The charges for the surgeries mentioned are for the products to be used and tests to be conducted. Apart from this, there is a foreseeable expense of 10,000 for medicine as well.
Durga Didi works as a cook while her husband works as an auto driver. They do not have the funds or savings to get the medical treatment for Deepa despite their best efforts.
