Every time someone would ask Radha about her daughter, Divya (7), her face would glow with pride and she would tell them about how she has now learnt to read and write words. And like most proud parents, she would look at her and say “paapu, tell aunty the new word you learnt yesterday?” Divya would then quickly hide behind her father, Muniswamy, and peek out from behind with a smile. “People always tell us that she has such a bright, beautiful smile,” Radha says. However, since last November, little Divya’s smile has faded. When people meet them at the temple or at the bus stop, they still see the same shy girl, but what they don’t notice is the tinge of yellowness on her skin, her slightly swollen hands and legs, and that after walking just a few steps, she asks her mother to carry her - Divya's liver disease is making her weaker.

Fortunately, there is a cure for her liver disease – a liver transplant that can give her a healthy life going forward, and a chance to do all the things she wants to.

Divya was all set to start class 1 when her condition began deteriorating

Divya’s liver disease was diagnosed two years ago, however, with medication she was able to live a relatively normal childhood. Her days always went the same way – she would wake up early in the morning to get ready, her father would then drop her to school on the way to the market and once she was back home and had finished her homework, she would fall asleep to her grandmother’s stories.

However, since last November, her hands, legs and stomach have been swelling up often. They told us it was because her liver was failing. She had gotten admission into a school for class 1, and was very excited too. But she just didn’t get better. Last week, she was so sick that she was in the ICU for 4 days.” – Radha, mother

Her mother was forced to quit her job, and her father’s income isn’t enough to get her treated

Watching her daughter suffer so much and due to the frequent trips to the hospital they needed to make, Radha quit her tailoring job to take care of Divya. For nearly a year now, Muniswamy has been the sole breadwinner of the family, earning a maximum of Rs. 500 on a good day by selling onions in his small shop. However, there are days when he makes no money at all. Under these circumstances, they wonder how they can afford the 20 lakhs required for her liver transplant – the only thing that can save her from this misery and bring back her bright smile.

How You Can Help Divya Get A Liver Transplant

Divya’s parents have spent nearly 3 lakhs over these past two years on her treatment. They have borrowed and taken loans, but now none of that will be enough – they need your help to save their daughter from liver disease. Your support will save Divya and give her a pain-free childhood.
