Piyali and Sagar’s twin babies were born on January 3rd, in the wee hours of the morning. At just 600 odd grams each, they were extremely weak, fragile and just not strong for a world outside their mothers’ womb.
They will only get stronger with continued NICU careNow, their babies need to stay in the NICU for at least a month to get stronger and healthier, so that the new parents can take them home – their only wish and prayer every day since their birth. Their baby girl and boy are just 12-days-old and have fought bravely till now and can make it only with your support.
The past 12 days have been nothing short of painful – for the parents and the newbornsThe past three years have been the most difficult for Piyali and Sagar. Ever since Piyali was accidentally pushed off the train because of the crowd and injured her left hand, she had to stop teaching at the primary school near their home in Kolkata. Now, Sagar is the sole breadwinner of the family, working for a private company. Their journey has been anything but smooth sailing, but nothing has left them as devastated as the unfortunate fate of their newborns.
“Now all we do is stay in the hospital. I haven’t gone to work since their birth, I don’t know how I will even be able to think about anything else. They’re so small. They can’t even breathe on their own. We’re supporting to be protecting them as parents, and we haven’t even been given that chance.” - Sagar, father.
The only thing the parents can do now is pray, but we can come together to save their twins
“Whenever my relatives call me, I ask them to pray for our babies. That’s all I can do now. I’m in no position to ask them for more money, and there’s only so much they can help us.” - Sagar
Sagar has spent nearly 2 lakhs in these 12 days, and 13 lakhs more is beyond his means. The babies need the warmth and love of their parents, instead of the cold bed of the NICU and the numerous tubes attached to their little bodies. They can get timely treatment and get stronger with your support - it's the only way they can go home.
