    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Hello friends, I am Nithya Ravi. My Mom (Sathyavathy Ravi) and dad (Ravi Ramachandran) have unfortunately been affected by COVID three weeks ago in the recent COVID outburst in Chennai. My mom has been in-home quarantine and is continuing to improve daily with some antibiotics prescribed by the doctor. However, my dad was severely impacted by the virus and has been in critical condition for the past 3 weeks. My dad is 57 and the doctor says that his age will make his recovery very slow due to the level of damage.

Fortunately, my dad was admitted to a private hospital where we had a bed available on the 19th of April. His condition worsened by the 27th of April and was put under complete ‘ventilator support’. It has since been 2 weeks and only little improvement has been observed. The doctor explained that the chances of recovery are high and definite but will prove to be very slow since 70% of his lungs have been affected due to secondary infections like Pneumonia.

It’s been more than three weeks and we have already spent 13 lakhs on the hospital expenses with the support of family and friends. But because of his slow recovery rate, the doctor says that it is required for him to stay for a minimum of 3 more weeks in the hospital with all support and medications.

We are a family of 3, where my mom is a housewife and my dad works as an accounts executive at Larsen and Toubro Limited. He is already at his retirement stage. I am a student in Australia, already struggling hard to save for my college fees and my expenses abroad, and my mom is struggling alone at home. So it is really becoming very hard for us to manage the hospital expenses which might go up to 15-20 lakhs according to the level of my dad’s recovery. It would be really great and we would be very thankful if you could make some contribution to my dad’s recovery and help us bring him home safe and healthy. Each and every penny we receive would be directly transferred to the hospital bills.

So kindly do consider our situation and support us as much as you can from your side. We would be very much thankful for you even though we might not know each other personally. This help really means a lot to me and I have no words to express it. Also, thanks in advance for coming forward to help us.
