Im writing a request on behalf of our class of 1987, St. Francis Xavier's school, Kanjurmarg East, Mumbai 400042
One of our school classmate, Hemant Kalgutkar, used to be on a wheel chair or was carried to and fro, by his elder brother to our class everyday. He has had a polio inflicted physical challenge resulting in underdeveloped legs with very limited strength to stand on his feet for too long. He would now be around 44-45 years of age. His medical condition will remain status quo through the years to come.
Now, To make matters worse, his wife has been diagnosed with a LIVER disorder and has to undergo a LIVER TRANSPLANT. The doctors have estimated 20 Lakhs for this surgery and then post transplant expenses will possibly take that number to about 25 Lakhs. Thanks to WhatsApp and social media channels, all of our batchmates are doing our best to gather funds to reach this financial target to bear the expenses. In the last 3-4 days, we have together managed to collect a pledge of around 8 Lakhs and we still need a whopping 17 Lakhs more to allow Hanumant's family to be able to get past this huge roadblock that has presented itself to this humble family.
Could you also join in helping with whatever financial support you could offer from your side. We are making a very sincere effort here given that she is so young and has an entire lifetime of stuff to do.
Each of us classmates have agreed to work on a target and collectively, we are confident we will overcome this challenge too, with your help.
Hope to hear from you positively.
God bless you and your family,
