Story


He has reached an age where a man is looking for a partner to complete his life and is working towards his life goals, but unfortunately, 26-year-old Gyanendra is surviving by popping painkillers day and night.

"I can't stand on my feet. I am a burden to my family. My body aches all time. Painkillers are my three-time meal. I feel ashamed seeing my father and brother struggling for my treatment." - says Gyanendra


Gyanendra is unable to stand on his feet. His feet are bent and swollen. His knees are swollen because of excess fluid accumulation in or around the knee joint. This is also referred to as an effusion in the knee joint. With unbearable pain in his body, he is bedridden.

Gyanendra was a healthy child who used to play and giggle all day. He was a bright student who loved studying and learning new things. But sadly, as he turned eight, his childhood turned from jolly to blue as his legs began to swell, and he became bedridden.


Today Gyanendra struggles every day to live with this pain and suffering. At times he faints due to excessive pain in the legs and feet. He can't even make a slight movement of his legs. He travels from one place to another using wheelchair.

At times he feels choked and can't speak. He feels pricking pressure in his chest. He also gets a fever. His overall health is affected as he finds it hard to eat properly because of excessive suffering. Therefore immediate treatment is needed to help him stand on his feet.


"I am a poor man who feels poverty is a curse. I have to carry my young boy in my arms for urination because I can't afford his treatment. I know painkillers should not be taken so often, but I have no option when I see my child crying in pain. All I can afford is a Rs 5/- painkiller a day." Barelal, father of Gyanendra.

Barelal, Gyanendra's father, is a daily wage worker. His work depends on availability. During covid, they strived to afford one meal a day as his elder brother worked at the airport in Delhi to support his family in the village, but, during covid, he lost his job. His father and elder brother borrowed a loan for his treatment which has to be repaid with huge interest. His mother, Ladkunwar, is a housewife who prays to God to heal her child.


"I am an old woman. It's tough for me to see my child in such a helpless condition. He can't even stand. God, please give me all his pain but heal my son." Ladkunwar, mother.

The low-income family desperately needs funds to save their son from a miserable life. Please help!
