It's Been Days Since He Opened His Eyes, His Parents Are Scared He Never WIll

“His fever was not getting any better despite all the medicines. So we decided to take him to a bigger hospital. We took the first bus to the city in the morning, but on the way he started gasping for breath and then... then he fell unconscious. It’s been 11 days and he hasn’t opened his eyes.” - Lavanya, mother.

Lavanya's baby boy is suffering from Pneumonia. Though a very common and easily curable disease, the baby's condition got serious very quickly. The disease is now threatening to take away this 2-month-old's life. Without continuous support and PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) treatment, he will not be able to make it.

We haven't even named our little boy yet

Shankar and Lavanya were ecstatic when they held their newborn after 5 years of marriage. They felt like their prayers were answered but now they have to pray again, as they run from pillar to post. Now they pray that their child stays alive.

“It’s been so many days since he opened his eyes. He is just lying there with all these machines attached to his body. I can’t help but cry looking at my little boy. We haven't even gotten to name him yet..." - Radhika, mother

Shankar is a farmer who owns a small piece of land which is the only source of income for him. That too he earns only once every 6 months, during the harvest. Before, the family was happy in their little world, making just enough money to survive. When their baby was born, life was complete. But now...

With just a few more days in the ICU, this little baby can be saved. Without your help, he will not be able to make it. Your generous contributions can save a life. Click here to help.
