Her Heart Nearly Stopped Beating Once Already, This 5-Year-Old's Life Is In Danger Again

“Bhavya was just 25 days old when we got to know that there was a hole in her heart and that it might stop beating soon without a heart surgery. She had her first surgery when she was just 1 year old. And we thought it would be the end of her pain. But now... again..." - Venkatalaxmi, mother

After Bhavya was diagnosed as having a heart disease, it took one year for the parents to arrange funds for her surgery. That one year, baby Bhavya went through immense pain that she couldn’t even convey.

“She would cry all the time. Nothing we did consoled her. She couldn’t speak and I could only imagine what she was going through. Sometimes at night, she would fall completely silent and... and I used to be so afraid that I lost her. I don’t want any of it to repeat ever again.” - Anjaiah, father

Life after her surgery was as if nothing happened

“She wasn’t in pain anymore. She smiled more and was much more active. She started picking up words and started going to school too. She was absolutely fine after the surgery and we thought the bad was over but...” - Anjaiah

Her heart is failing again and we don’t have that much time

“She has another hole in her heart and she needs surgery again. Last time it took a year, now... we don't know. We just know that if she doesn’t get her surgery soon, we will lose her for sure this time…”
Anjaiah works as a daily wage farmer. He earns merely Rs 150-200 a day and with that he manages the requirement of the entire day. It is barely enough for proper 2 time meals for this family. The surgery will cost them 5 lakh rupees and they cannot afford it.
