My father met with a road accident while riding his bike on 12th Feb at our home town Dindigul. He was rushed to the local govt hospital by the public. As he suffered a severe head injury, the Duty Dr advised for taking him to a specialty hospital at Madurai. As referred by them, he has been rushed to Hannah Joseph Hospital, Madurai and was performed brain surgery by the Dr. He is still under ICCU care.
So far we had incurred an expenditure of around 6 L and it is understood from the Dr that the bill might come closer to 10.00 L. My father was engaged in agricultural activity in a small land of joint property and the income out of the same is not big enough. My younger brother has just joined a software co just a year before and getting only a part of his salary since lockdown.
The insurance coverage worth Rs.20K provided to me is applicable for the employee only and does not include any of my family members. As such we do not have any surplus income/saving to afford these emergency expenses. Presently we had borrowed money from a couple of relatives and friends on a returnable basis.
It would be a great help if the company can give some financial help to take care of this emergency situation and save my father’s life.
