My father tester positive for covid'19 on May 6th. Due to this condition, he started having difficulty in breathing immediately. We admitted him to the hospital on May 6th and he was in the ICU on a respirator for the first. On May 6th night, hisoxygen levels went drastically down to 84, which is very low for patients like him. He was then put on a ventilator and ever since the doctors have been struggling to keep his oxygen levels up.
The hospital is charging about 50000 per day (~680 USD) for his treatment and the doctor’s assessment is that he continues to stay on the oxygen support for 8 more days beginning May 6th to get his oxygen levels to stabilize. The total estimated expenses will come up to 5 lakhs (~6700 USD) for the whole treatment. Our family and friends were kind enough to pool about 25000 rupees(~350 dollars ) so far. As a sole bread winner of my family, I am speechless as to where to get the rest of the funds from. After accounting the money that I have saved and the support that I have already received, I am trying to raise a final difference goal of 3 Lakhs (~4000 USD) through this campaign.

My father is a tailor by profession and he always has been a hard work and only support to my family. As he fights for his life today, I am requesting you to please help me financially and your prayers will help him get better. Any contribution you choose to make is really appreciated and I will be ever so grateful to you for saving my father's life.
