Mast Mayur Shelke, 8, is suffering from the agony of Kidney stones since 2 yrs now. His mother Rekha, became a single parent as his father committed suicide due to financial debts on 13th May this year in the lockdown. Her work as a 'chutti' maid doesn't even suffice for the monthly rent, let alone raise 2 sons.
The child has been passing blood in his urine. A year and half ago, when she somehow collected 15k for all the tests, a surgery was due. Sadly, due to the lack of funds, she couldn't get him the treatment he needed and the money was of no avail due to the limited validity of tests like CT scan.
Today, with the help of a benevolent lady she collected 16k and Mayur got all the tests (incl. Covid-19) done yet again. They stand at square 1, helpless as a total of Rs.1,20,000 more is required for the surgery, after-care, hospital package, medicines, etc. & fighting against time each day in the fear of these tests also going to waste!
At a fragile age of playing games, ill health and the series of tests have been traumatizing this boy all because the family can't afford this. If not you and I doing our bit, who is going to give this child a chance at a normal life, as he deserves?
Every penny will have a huge impact. It is my sincere request to open your hearts and help save Mayur's life and bring just about any amount of long-lost happiness to their family.
