Their fear became a realityAfter Pujitha was born, a simple fever and cough would also scare the parents. They would rush to the doctor to save their child and their fear became a reality in no time.
Pujitha consistently got sick and soon lost her appetite. She couldn’t eat much and even if she did, she would vomit it all out. Watching her child cry day and night, Sujatha took her to the hospital where the tests revealed that Pujitha has a heart disease. This makes her vulnerable and prone to common ailments like cough, cold and fever.
She wins hearts with her smile and tries to be active but it only lasts a few minutesPujitha is super active and loves to crawl. She loves playing with her mother and crawls fast, waiting for her to catch her. She is 9-months-old now and has started to pull herself up and stand. But this joy sadly lasts only for a little time as Pujitha starts crying again leaving her mother clueless of what has happened to her - whether it is the pain or tiredness or if she's unable to breathe.
“I smile looking at her trying to stand and walk but my heart aches thinking about what she is going through, that she can’t even express it to me.” - Sujatha
He cannot be with his daughter when she needs him the mostThirupathi is a daily wage labourer. He needs to keep working for his family's daily meal. With Pujitha being sick, he doesn’t want to lose a minute at work and puts all his energy to earn that extra rupee to save his child.
“If he skips work to be with his daughter, we won’t be able to afford the medicines. We are labourers, how can we arrange for 2 lakh rupees. Even after my husband working day and night we can hardly afford the medicines." - Sujatha
Pujitha's eyes are bright and curious. She is yet to see the beautiful world. They can’t do this alone and need your help.
