"As I look into the mirror, I feel agitated. I want to kill myself. People stare at me as if I am from another world. My life is nothing less than hell. Please, God, heal me or kill me." Payal.

When Payal was hardly eight, she played near the fireplace with her friends. Accidentally one of her friends pushed her, and she fell into the burning fire. She was burning and screaming for help as the fire took control of her body. Finally, her father came to her rescue. While saving her life, he also caught fire but managed to rescue her by jumping into the well. They both survived that accident, but another accident took away her father's life, and she is still fighting for life.

16-year-old Payal is fighting a tough battle with her burn marks and mental torture daily. She has lost confidence as her face is disfigured with burn marks, and her lower lip is bent outwards, making it difficult to eat and speak. She feels isolated as everyone in the school ignores her.

She has to sit alone at the last desk with all this hatred around her. Even her right hand is badly burnt, making it challenging for her to perform day-to-day activities like wearing clothes. Even her right leg is severely burnt. She is living a miserable life. She immediately needs Skin grafting and Microsurgery to lead a dignified life.

There is hope for a better life with a treatment customised to the extent and thickness of the burn scarring. Most burn scars on her body can be eliminated using techniques such as scar revision, skin grafting, tissue expansion, and non-surgical Fraxel laser technology.

In case of facial disfigurement, the thick scars, known as keloids, are removed and replaced with blocks of normal tissue through Microsurgery. To restore circulation immediately, there is a delicate attachment to the facial artery. The new facial tissue is shaped to look, feel, and perform like normal facial skin. The scars are hidden in the shadows of the facial planes.

These treatments can bring her back to life.

"My husband left me alone. I have no one with whom I can share my sorrows and mountain of responsibilities. How much can I do for my children by working as a labourer? My earnings can never give them a better life." Sunita, mother.

A helpless woman Sunita lost her husband in 2020. Her husband Brijesh had a tragic road accident resulting in several injuries. Even after spending lots of money on nine surgeries, they could not save his life. Sunita has no option and has to work as a labourer to run the house. She has to manage household expenses and children's education with her meagre earnings. The cost of medications and surgery is beyond her means.

"My father loved me a lot. Our life was way better when he was around. We never had to struggle for a meal or sleep empty stomach. I miss him a lot. I wouldn't have to bear this pain and humiliation if he was alive. This humiliation is getting intolerable for me." Payal.

Nobody is coming forward to help Sunita. She is all alone in this fight against deadly burns torturing her daughter day and night. Although she has pooled every rupee possible, still she is far from the amount required to heal Payal. Please save Sunita's hope by donating to her daughter's treatment.
