80G tax benefits for INR donations

My family's driver, Govinda uncle, met with an accident on the afternoon of 17th June 2022. As he rode his 2-wheeler on 6th Main in Indiranagar, a passenger in a parked cab opened the door of the car and ended up slamming him and his bike. Although he was wearing a helmet, his head hit the ground with so much force that he lost consciousness immediately. Bystanders rushed him to the nearby hospital. It was at this point that his family was contacted, and we became aware of the accident. Doctors found that there was injury to the brain and internal bleeding. They intubated him and recommended shifting him to a private hospital for immediate surgery, while on ventilator support.

He was shifted and underwent the surgery (costing ~2.5 lakh INR) on the night of 17th June, with the consent of his wife. Doctors were able to remove the bleeding, and found that there was no fresh bleeding afterward. Over the next couple of days, he showed some signs of improvement. However, on 20th June, his condition appears to have worsened and doctors observed swelling in the brain.

Govinda uncle is still on ventilator support and doctors have indicated that he needs prolonged ICU care. The charges incurred for the ventilator are approximately 50,000 INR per day, apart from costs of additional scans and tests recommended by the doctors. Being the sole breadwinner for his family, his wife and children are in no position to pay the hospital bills. Govinda uncle's income came from working as a driver for two families. His wife and two children are extremely dependant on him - especially his older son (aged 16) who is autistic. His family stays in a small rented house at Ramamurthy Nagar in Bangalore.

Please help Govinda uncle's wife pay his hospital bills so that his children can have their father back!
