“They give us only 1-2 minutes a day to take a look at our baby’s face. That’s it! They ask us to move out of the room immediately after, saying our baby will get a severe infection if we stay any further. We hurriedly come out of the room - we don’t want to hurt him. Not any more. He is already going through so much. I don’t even know if he will…”
Archana can’t even complete her sentence. And you can’t blame her. Her first born is struggling with multiple medical conditions ranging from severe infection to organ failure, after accidentally swallowing some amniotic fluid while he was in his mother's womb. He has pneumonia and his blood doesn't clot as well. He needs continuous medical care but the helpless parents don’t know if they can afford it. They don’t know if they can save their baby boy.
He hasn’t even opened his eyes until now... my baby doesn’t know what his mother looks like
It’s been 13 days since Archana and Krishna’s baby boy was born. But since his birth he hasn’t opened his eyes even once. He can’t breathe on his own and he has a severe infection in his blood. He can’t even feed - he is on IV drips.
“His entire body gets swollen up - his neck, his back, even his eyes. He hasn’t even seen my face, he doesn’t know I visit him everyday - he doesn’t even know what I look like. Will he ever wake up?” - Archana keeps worrying about her son.
A door-to-door salesman, Krishna was not prepared for this emergency
“Everything was going fine for us. We were so happy, making plans, buying baby clothes. Archana never missed any of her check-ups, her tests were fine too. Then, how did all this... I was so unprepared,” - Krishna, father.
He earns around Rs 15,000. His entire salary goes in taking care of his family, there is hardly any savings. The little savings he had he had to use up for Archana’s delivery. There is no way he can arrange for his baby’s treatment. He needs 5 lakhs - after spending lakhs already, Krishna doesn’t know how he can save his son’s life.
Archana and Krishna are helpless and in desperate need of funds. They have knocked on every such door from which they expected help. But that is not enough - a small contribution from your side can save their baby boy
