Story


"I can't see my daughter crying in pain. Her cries tear my heart apart. I wish she died in the womb and didn't have to go through this suffering. I curse myself for being such a helpless mother." Alka, mother.

3-month-old Himanshi is suffering from a severe case of Spina Bifida. It is a congenital disability in which a baby's spinal cord fails to develop properly while a child is in the mother's womb. It causes protruding spinal cord tissue leading to hunched back, nerve injury, or paralysis. Doctors recommend a surgery costing lakhs to close the defect.


Little Himanshi was just 15 days old when she developed a fever, and her condition started turning worse with time. Initially, she had a small pimple on her back, which later became bigger. And her parents were in shock when doctors informed her that she was suffering from a severe spine defect.

Little Himanshi is carrying the burden of a ball size cyst on her small back. Her spine is unable to bear this pain and burden. She is unable to lie on her back peacefully. She always has to sleep on her side. She can't even express her pain. It affects her brain, and there are chances of paralysis in the future. It is a semi-liquid cyst that can burst anytime. Therefore she needs immediate surgery.


"Doctors say that we need to get her treated as soon as possible, but we have no money. What should I do? How will I end my child's pain." Sudhir, father.

Sudhir, the father of Himanshi, is a labourer and her mother, Alka, is a housewife. Sudhir earns peanuts, which is insufficient to meet their daily needs. Her parents are helplessly looking at her, crying as they can't pay for treatment. They hope for a miracle to see Himanshi in the best of her health.


Little child dies in pain every second. She is born with suffering. All she knows in life is pain that is eating her up. Please come forward to save little Himanshi's life.
