I am a first-generation learner pursuing PhD from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Tuljapur campus. A few month ago, I was diagnosed with Covid-19 and was admitted initially at Moraya Hospital, Osmanabad and after few days Venktesh Critical Care Latur both private hospitals.
I tested positive with COVID twice and diagnosed with pneumonia at the same time. Now I am getting treatment at Venktesh critical care Latur since last month. Being sole earner in the family I am not able to pay for the treatment. I already have spent Rs 5 lac for the treatment, given that I am self-financing my PhD with no stable source of income, no fellowship and have a wife and two kids at home who solely depend on me.
It has become detrimental to my mental health to support my family, bear hospital expenses and continue with my PhD, all at the same time. If it continues like this, I will have to lose either of these, which will have devastating effects on my career and life. At this time of crisis, I request individuals to please provide financial support, a small help from you can make big difference in my life.
