    Venkatesh

    from Namakkal, Tamil Nadu

Story

Venkatesan is a 35 year old vegetable seller. Raised by his destitute mother in a rural village near Namakkal when his father ditched them while he was 4 months old, he has fought all odds in life. Now married with two kids, he is a vegetable seller in Kolli Hills with an income that is just enough to take care of his mother, wife and children.
 
Like many others, he is also a victim of Corona, having lost a regular income for close to 2 years now. Trouble started on Friday when he went to Kolli Hills for his business. As was the usual practice, he stayed there overnight for his business and climbed down the hills the next day. God knows what had happened that night!
 
He had body pain and tiredness and took rest for a day. When his body pain and flu became intolerable, he got admitted in a local hospital. Covid treatment was given based on CT scan reports while the swab test was still awaited. Situation worsened with sudden rashes all over his body, breathlessness, cardiac issues and multi-organ problems.  The swab and further tests revealed that he isn't covid positive but a severe allergic reaction affecting all his vitals which could have been because of an insect or snake bite on Friday night.
 
He is now under critical care, but their meagre savings have all been exhausted only in diagnosis. He needs to be on ventilator for at least a week followed by a slow and steady plan for his revival. Please help us in this fund raising by donating however little you could.
