“The way I left my son in the hospital, I don’t know if I will ever see him alive. He is bleeding from his gums, he has high fever - he can’t even get up from the bed. There are bruise marks all over his body. It’s just horrible to see him like that. I am going back home today, I will try everything I can but I know it won’t be enough,” - Gopal Singh, father.

His elder son, Rudra, tries to make her understand but a mother’s heart doesn’t understand any reason. All she wants is Babu to become better.
“Why did it have to happen to my son? He was fine a few months ago. How did all this happen?”- Saraswati breaks down.
They have lived in poverty all their lives but never have they felt the pinch so badGopal makes about Rs 10,000 as a chowkidar and his elder son works as a cook. But even their joint income was not enough to keep Babu in school. He had to drop out of school when he was in standard 4. Despite all the hardships, they were happy until Babu Ram was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia.
“We need 20 lakhs. How will a family like us arrange for so much? We are neck-deep in debts, the 3 lakhs that we have spent is all borrowed. I don’t know how long we can continue like this. We need your help to save our son, we need it now,” - Gopal.
