    This fundraiser will benefit

    Ramana

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

We(Sibi and Vandana) heard about Ramana through one of our friends and we went and visited his family at their house near Kannamangala. It was a heart-rending scene to see Ramanna as he lies bedridden and incontinent. He met with an accident in February 2019 and was seriously injured. He was admitted to R. L.  Jalappa hospital, Kolar and underwent two surgeries. The first was a neurosurgery: right lobectomy with hematoma evacuation. A bone flap was removed and placed in his anterior abdominal wall. He was in the intensive care unit for a month. Later he underwent another surgery on his left leg for correction of the fracture. He was discharged with a requirement of follow-up surgery to place the bone flap back in the head.
   Currently, he is left-sided hemiplegic (loss of movement) and psychologically disturbed as he has lost hope and has no relatives to help him and his family in their current plight. His wife Radhamma works as a maid in the neighboring houses. He has two little children who go to a nearby government school. For Ramana to be rehabilitated and restored to good health he needs to undergo the second surgery and start physiotherapy. With the meager income of Radhamma, she is unable to afford the surgery leading to further deterioration of his health. It is the need of the hour for us to step in as fellow human beings and help Ramana's family to restoration. The amount we raise will be used for the surgery at Jalappa Hospital followed by physiotherapy to help him with the movement of his limbs on the left side of his body and to meet the monthly expenses of their family for the next 6 months. We are estimating that we would need around 2.5 Lakhs.
