    This fundraiser will benefit

    Rajesh Ponnuswamy

    from Jaipur, Rajasthan

Our friend Rajesh Ponnuswamy, 46 years old is a caring husband, a loving son, a wonderful brother, and a responsible father. He has always been someone who takes care of those around him and tries to put a smile on their faces.

He was diagnosed with Covid a few weeks back in Jaipur and has been in the hospital for several weeks. His condition worsened over the last few days and the doctors have suggested that getting him an ECMO (Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) support potentially is the only course of action left with a near-certain Lung Transplant as the next step. ECMO support will relieve him of the ventilator and give his lungs a chance to heal. It has now become essential to his survival. In order to prepare for the lung transplant his family is forced to take him to a facility in Chennai. He needs to be airlifted  to Chennai for further treatment.

This comes with a huge financial burden and stress. The projected costs involved in the operation are:
  • ECMO supported Airlift to an ECMO+Lung Transplant facility - Rs. 25 Lacs
  • Daily ICU+ECMO charges at a hospital (30 days x Rs 2-3 Lacs) - 60 Lacs
  • Lung Transplant - Rs. 60 Lacs and upwards
  • Miscellaneous - Can’t really put a number to it
Estimated treatment duration: 2 months and upwards.

So far, out of the Rs. 53 Lakhs generously donated by supporters, we have utilized Rs. 50 Lakhs towards medical bills. We continue to need your support in Rajesh's fight with COVID as he still has a long road to recovery ahead. 

While his family and friends are doing their best to fund the sky-rocketing medical expenses, we need your help.

Please let him get his life back. His wife, children, brothers, his family and friends need him. This is a desperate plea from his wife, and parents to save him.

Much Gratitude
Family and Friends of Rajesh
