His 13-year-old Daughter Needs A Blood Transfusion Every Single Day, But He Cannot Afford It Anymore.

“I am a daily wage worker. I can only eat out of what I earn on any given day. When my daughter first fell ill, I could not imagine it would go on this long, or that I would have to survive without working for so many days. Nobody expects such situations, not when you do not earn enough to even provide for the basic expense of your family,” Ajit, Anindita’s father says.

A class topper and a little artist:

Anindita draws very well. She is also good in academics. “She comes first in class. We don’t have to tell her to study or do her home-work. We don’t even know enough to be able to help her with her studies, but she is always up-to-date with all her work. Even now, she keeps asking when she can go back to school,” her father proudly shares.

However, she has been hospitalized for the past one month and has not been able to go to school.

The day that changed Anindita’s life:

“It was the 9th of March,” her father recalls. “She was unwell, and when we consulted the doctor, he recommended a few tests. That was how we got to know she had Jaundice. That was where it all started. She recovered from the Jaundice, but her platelet count never got back to normal. We tried everything. Just went about from hospital to hospital, staying for a few days at each one, and watching her condition just worsen. We finally came here to Chennai with the help of some of my friends, and have been here since then. I am just holding on to the hope that one day I will bring my daughter back to the normal life she once led.”

The struggle:

Being a daily wage worker, Ajit has not been earning any money for over a month now. He has borrowed from friends, relatives and even money-lenders to keep Anindita’s treatment going. 
“Every single day is a struggle. We do not even care whether we have a place to stay, or food to eat. I just want my daughter back. I just want to see her healthy again.”
Anindita is suffering from a condition called Aplastic Anaemia. She needs to be given platelets everyday. The regular transfusion costs over Rs. 20,000 per day.
Ajit and his wife are somehow managing these costs with some money donated by Anindita’s school and teachers before they left their place in Bengal for the treatment.

Why you should help:

Ajit has already spent about Rs. 10 Lakh on his daughter’s treatment. A part of this money has been borrowed, some on interest. Due to his financial condition, this amount is already too big for him.

An Immunosuppressive therapy has been recommended The therapy would free Anindita of the need for regular transfusion and would help her return to a healthy life. This is an intense regime that must be followed 8-12 weeks of supportive care.

Her father is drowning in debt, and is uncertain about the next day, but he sits by his daughter holding on to nothing but hope: to take her back home, and watch her go to school again.
