Story

Hello, My name is Gouranga Prasad Giri and I work in a small firm in Kolkata with a humble salary and is the sole bread earner for my large family.

Recently, I was blessed with twin babies preterm on 15 September 2021. After birth the babies had to remain admitted in hospital for 3 weeks with symptoms of life-threatening Sepsis along with Respiratory Distress Syndrome. About 10 days after release from hospital, the babies were suffering again from Acute Bronchiolitis and needed to be admitted again immediately and were in NeoNatal ICU (NICU) for 28 days in Bhagirathi Neotia Women and Child Care Center, Kolkata.

By the grace of God, the babies were saved and have been discharged from hospital. But in the process a total bill of more than 13 Lakhs (13,69,160/-) was charged by the hospital. I managed the finances partly by exhausting my entire bank balance, selling off some gold ornaments of my wife and the rest I have maxed out credit card and borrowed money from money-lenders (mahajans) in order to settle the entire bill of the hospital. Unfortunately there was no insurance coverage.

Now I am left with no money whatsoever and the credit card company and money-lenders are chasing me for payments. I do not even have a proper CIBIL score to get a personal loan to clear these off. I am currently not even in a position to undergo my daily expenses and with the expenses for twin babies this has become a herculean task for me to survive.

Hence I am reaching out to all of you for help. If you can donate even a nominal amount that will be a great help for me and I will be able to close the credit card and loans from personal lenders. I will also be able to be in a position to run my family monthly expenses once these enormous dues are cleared. I looking for about 5 Lakhs in this regard.
 
Attached are the bills from the hospitals. There are a total 5 GST invoices provided by the hospital totalling 13,69,160/-. Discharge Summaries for both the babies for both instances of hospitalization with details of condition and treatment have also been attached for your kind perusal.

Requesting you to please help if possible. If you wish to donate please find below the Bank A/C details of myself where you can transfer any amount that you may wish. Even a small amount will be of great help for me.

Thank you for your kind attention and I sincerely hope you all can help me to come out from this dire situation and make me stand on my feet again and then I can raise my twin babies with my head held high. Thank you and God bless you all.
