"It's been 9 days since he was born, we have not held him even once in our arms. My wife has got infections from the stitches, she is in so much of pain but she does not move away from him even for a minute. She cries all the time and keeps telling him how much we love him. All I earn is few hundreds but I need lakhs to save my baby, I don't know what else I can do but I cannot just give up," - Sundaramoorthy, Father
We waited 13 long years for him, we cannot lose himPriya and Sundaramoorthy started their married life with so many dreams. They never imagined that the joy of parenthood would become a distant dream to them. They went to many hospitals but their reports were normal and the infertility problem was unexplained. When they almost believed that they could never become parents, Priya became pregnant. They couldn't believe it until the doctors assured that the baby is healthy. Unexpectedly, during her 7th month, her water broke and she had to immediately undergo a c section.
"It was 10 pm, she suddenly began to scream in pain and in few minutes she was bleeding. I thought I''ll lose both of them. I rushed her to the hospital. My baby was taken to NICU as soon as he was born. When my wife gained her consciousnesses, our baby was not next to her, she broke down and was screaming frantically," - Sundaramoorthy.
Priya was shocked at the very sight of her baby. He looked very fragile with tubes fitted everywhere. The baby has high blood pressure that is affecting his arteries in the lungs and in the heart. He also has severe infections in his blood and is on ventilator support now. The baby needs prolonged NICU stay to recover completely.
We'll have no strength to live if we lose our baby, please help us save himSundaramoorthy is a daily wager, he does odd jobs and earns around Rs 300 per day. Priya was also a daily wager but she stopped working after she became pregnant. They live in a small house and are paying Rs 3000 as rent. Sundaramoorthy did not go for work for the past 1 week and he has been running for help to all his relatives and friends. He managed to borrow only Rs 40,000 and he has nothing left with him anymore. He needs 6 lakhs for the treatment without which he'll lose his baby.
"We have no one to help us. I go home everyday to prepare food and bring it to the hospital. I beg my wife to eat, she is too weak and has no strength for anything. We are longing to take our baby home. Please help us," - Sundaramoorthy.
With your help, this poor couple can take their baby home and live a happy life
