    This fundraiser will benefit

    Valli Ammal

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu


My name is Rakesh, and this is a request to raise funds to save my mother Valli Ammal's legs who is 55 years old and our primary breadwinner. On 14 December at 8 am, our bus was rammed into. We were 20 adults and 5 children on a pilgrimage to Guruvayur.

My mother Valli Ammal was seriously injured as she was seated in the last seat and that’s where the impact was at its maximum. The seats in front of her crushed both her legs separating them from her body completely. My mother and I; being the only breadwinners of the family; have already pledged everything that we have including our jewels. Thus, churning out INR 6,00,000(This also includes money borrowed from friends & family).

In the next 4 days, we need a total of INR 15,00,000 to complete the surgery and its further treatment. This money that we need is 15X our family’s total monthly income. She is currently undergoing 3 surgeries and has 2 more major surgeries including Debridement, dead skin & infectious tissue removal, external fixation, internal fixation, repair of Vascular rupture, Free Flapping, Muscle flapping & skin drafting to be done based on her recovery.

I request you kindly help my cause of raising funds for her surgeries to save my mother.
