    Rupan mahto

    from Darbhanga, Bihar


Rupan mahto,
Is a citizen of Darbhanga Bihar. So far in his life he has been an excellent loyal cook and housekeeper, spending a better part of his life bringing up 2 generations in my family.

He has been suffering from elephantiasis in one leg for some time now, however having taken a break from work, he has now picked up the disease again in his other leg after being back home in his village.

This illness is going to be dibilitating for him and his family of 8 as it takes over his only working limb. since he is going to be unable contribute financially, and can't do any work as a farmer, a worker, as a cook or as house help.

I have spoken to the institute of applied dermatology, this is an except from an email after initial examination of his symptoms through photographs.

"We can treat through integrative approach. Approximate cost for 14 days treatment will be around 60000 to 70000 INR (food and accommodation not included). this is only the approximate cost actual costing will be done once you come for first consultation. After the first 14 days of treatment you will need to continue medications at home (cost of medications - approximately Rs.8, 000 per month for initial 3 months and Rs.3000/- per month thereafter)."

Which is 70000+ 24000+ 27000 + travel and accommodation to IAD.
