Story



My name is Sharmeen Hakim and I am raising funds for 27-year-old Abul Kasim, who is suffering from chronic kidney disease, complications in the chest (pleural effusion) and brain (epidural haematoma).

A week ago, I was writing an investigative report on patients not having access to dialysis during the lockdown when I visited Abul in a tiny attic room in Kamathipura. He had last undergone dialysis six days ago and was gasping for breath. This is his story.

Abul Kasim hails from Karimganj in Assam. He was employed at the Hilton Hotel in Mumbai when he was diagnosed with Tuberculosis two years ago.
Over the next year and a half the prescribed medication damaged his kidneys to such an extent that he requires dialysis thrice a week. His father was forced to sell whatever property he owned to keep him alive.
Since then, they moved from one hospital to another in Assam and Mumbai seeking treatment until he was admitted at Sir JJ Hospital (Grant Medical College, Mumbai) in January. In April, he was briefly discharged after a patient tested positive for COVID in the hospital. That’s when I met him.

After spending five months at the hospital he continues to suffer from complications in the chest and brain but is currently only receiving regular dialysis for his kidney failure.  
Fortunately, Dr. Susheel Bindroo, a leading pulmonologist at Jaslok Hospital has promised the required treatment for an estimate of Rs. 3.5 lakh (document enclosed).
Abul wants to live not just for himself but for his parents, his four sisters and his younger brother, who recently had his leg crushed in an accident. He wants to live for his other brother who was murdered several years ago. Finally he has a chance of living and wants to take it. But he cannot do it alone.

Please help breathe life into his existence. Please help us raise this amount by clicking on the donate button and sharing this page with your friends and family. All your contributions will be deposited directly into Jaslok Hospital's bank account.
 
We are grateful for your help and wishes.
Thank you.
