Pooja Nirala, a rights activist working to ensure the rights of unorganized workers. My father, my mentor Prem Nirala (71 years) is suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease. He has been suffering from burning sensations while urinating since 2020. This problem has taken a huge position now. Then the Covid emergency came into advent and then it was tough to get him admitted to any hospital, the hospitals then were only serving mostly covid patients then. We couldn't admit him then but somehow in September 2020, we got him admitted to a private nursing home. We couldn't manage the cost and had to get him forcefully discharged from the private nursing home even though he was suffering. The next December 2020 we consulted a private hospital in Guwahati and they said that my father is cancer in a urinary bladder patient. We couldn't afford the surgery in the private hospital and shifted him to a government hospital in Guwahati. He was operated on in the first week of March 2021 and detected that he has no Cancer.

I got my father discharged and took him home. His burning sensation while urination remained. Again I took loans and managed to get my father admitted to a private hospital this June. He suffered two cardiac arrests and was admitted to ICU and was imposed ventilation.

After being discharged, he was needed to be re-admitted to the hospital owing to dysentery. This time he had got a second cardiac arrest and was re-transferred to ICU. The doctor had informed us that he has a block in his heart and needs to be treated, but I couldn't keep him admitted to the hospital for proper treatment due to lack of funds and got him discharged within 4 days.

I ensured two dialyzes per week to my father and thought this will help, but then other problems like gas formation, Water accumulation in his stomach, and swelling of his hands and legs started showing up. Sometimes he also lost his sense. I consulted a neuropsychologist. But the intensity of problems remained. All total it was costing me 50,000 INR per month.

My father started showing intense nervous problems on the 17th of the current month. The doctor has advised getting him admitted but I am not able to get him admitted owing to lack of availability of funds. I lost my mother to cancer when I was six. My father has nurtured us as single parents. But now I am not able to ensure proper treatment to my father due to a funds crunch. I have an elder brother and a younger sibling. All of our work for small organizations and are under debt already while ensuring this more than year-long medical care to my father.

The doctor has said that to get my father treated for neuro, heart, nephrology, and urology problems, an amount of 5 lakhs is needed. Presently we are not in the position to afford the treatment but also couldn't see our father withering in pain. I am clueless and hence am requesting you all to kindly donate for getting my father treated.
