These Parents Live In Fear Of Losing Their Children One By One To The Same Disease

“Both my kids have this disease that can take them away from me and... and I am not capable of saving even one of them. Why is God punishing us like this? Why?” - Manohar, the father
 
Manohar and Geeta, the mother, have two children; a 2- year-old daughter and a 6- year- old son. Nothing was more devastating for them than to hear the news that both of their kids are suffering from a fatal disease.

 Is it because of me that both my kids have it?


“The doctors said that it is a genetic disorder. Is it because of me that both my kids have this disease. It should have happened to me, why them?” - Manohar, with tears in his eyes

Sickle cell disease is a genetic disorder in which red blood cells contort into a sickle shape. The cells die early, leaving a shortage of healthy red blood cells, and can block blood flow causing pain and infections that can even cause death. 

Kajal’s condition is very critical, I might lose her soon


My daughter is getting sicker day by day. She is getting weaker and pale. Her body aches  all the time. She says ‘mamma, make it stop’ but how… It is a long battle and we don’t even have enough to start the treatment. How will we save her? How can we save her brother. I...” - Geeta, crying helplessly

Kajal’s condition is very critical right now and she needs crisis management at the earliest, without which infections cannot be controlled and she might not survive it. She needs blood transfusion and medications but the parents are helpless and cannot afford it.

We are just daily wage farmers, Rs 150 - 200 is all we earn in a day


Manohar and Geeta work on daily wage basis as farmers in their village. All they earn is Rs 150 - 200 in a day. With two sick kids, they find it very difficult to go to work.

“We are just daily wage farmers, we can’t afford Rs 3 lakhs...we can’t. Every time we  step out of the house for work, we just wish they will be healthy and smiling by the time we come back. But Kajal’s health has been getting worse, and we are unable to think straight. All we think about is how to save them..." - Geeta
