We have known Mahalakshmi since 2016. She is our maid's daughter and a school-going child who has had to discontinue her education bcoz of the illness.
Mahalakshmi lives in Siruthavoor, Chengalpattu district, Tamil Nadu with her parents. After a sustained complaint of a severe body pain, she was examined by the local doctor and after some clinical tests, she was detected with Leukemia a few months back.
At present, she is receiving Chemotherapy at a private hospital where she is required to get admitted into the hospital periodically for treatment. A significant portion of the expenses till now, including the medical tests, medicines & supply of nutritious food amounting to approximately Rs. 70,000 have been provided by us and our close family members.
Our maid's family has been managing their daily sustenance primarily from loans as our maid is unable to go for work and her husband's income is barely enough for their sustenance.
