This Baby Was Abandoned By Her Father, And Is Struggling To Survive

Happily married in January, Ekta started a new life with her husband and soon the good news of becoming a mother came. But in no time the new marriage started to fall apart. Ekta's husbad started abusing her both physically and mentally. Her brother couldn’t see her in that state and brought her home.

“My mother called my husband as soon as I gave birth, but… but he didn’t care. He didn’t even come to see the child even once. Now my baby is struggling in ICU and I don’t know how to save her. I have absolutely no support from my husband’s family.” - Ekta

Ekta’s baby was born prematurely in the 8th month due to which the baby is extremely underweight and has a severe respiratory condition. She can live a healthy life only if kept under NICU care for the next 10 weeks. She also has sepsis which will cause multiple organ failure if they fail to afford the treatment.

“When I saw her for the first time, I was scared... I was so scared that I might break her if I hold her. She weighed just 1kg and before I could understand anything, she was taken to the ICU. Now she has pipes in her nose and mouth, and bandages all over her body. I don’t want to lose my little girl.”- Ekta

My brother has done so much for me but now he is helpless too

Ravi, Ekta’s brother, works as a helper in a hospital. He somehow managed the house and Ekta’s needs for the past 6 months, but the cost of treatment for this newborn is way beyond his ability.
“What I earn in a month is not even close to what we have to pay here in a day. I feel angry that I am unable to do anything for my sister and my niece. What is that little girl’s fault?” - Ravi

Ekta’s family is desperately trying everything they can to save the baby but is it is not enough. 

“We need 17 lakh rupees to save her. Where will a poor family like us get so much money? Whatever we had, the money, the jewellery... we sold everything in these 5 days but still… Please help us, please help my sister” - Ravi

Your little contribution can give this mother her daughter back. This baby will get a new life. Without your help Ekta will not be able to save the baby alone. She needs you, she needs your help.
