    Gautham Kishore

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Story

Gautham (Kishore), 35 years old, is working as a supervisor for a private building firm in Chennai. His mother, physically disabled, (aged 55) tested positive for COVID on May 10, 2021.  She was admitted in Lifecare hospital in Chennai. After fighting COVID for 8 days, she passed away on May 17, 2021 in cardiac arrest (COVID complication).

While his mother was fighting COVID in hospital, Gautham's father (aged 56) tested positive on May 11, 2020 and he was admitted in Lifecare Hospital, Chennai initially. He was moved to Prashanth hospital as he required ICU care. He  was in critical condition with renal function failure and was in ICU for 14 days and the ICU treatment cost the family Rs.1,00,000 per day (approx.)

Gautham also tested positive on May 21, 2021 and is currently admitted in Kamatchi hospital in Chennai. 
Unfortunately, Gautham's father lost his fight to COVID and succumbed on May 29, 2021.

So far, the family has incurred a medical expense of over Rs.16 lakhs. They have already spent Rs.7 lakhs and exhausted all their savings /insurance options.  

Having lost both his parents within the last two weeks, Gautham is traumatized and in hospital. He is struggling to raise the money needed to cover the outstanding medical expenses. This campaign is to raise Rs.7,00,000 to support Gautham.

No contribution is big or small - any help matters. 

How the funds will be used: Your contributions will be used for covering the outstanding medical expenses of Gautham's parents, his treatment and finally to get Guatham back on his feet after recovery.
