“I had no choice but to come back home to see if I could arrange the amount for his treatment...but I failed. For a labourer like me, 5 lakhs is something I will never be able to afford. I wanted to just go back to Dev but all of this happened…I can't be with him.”
His wife died the day after their baby was born
“It was so sudden. I didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye to my wife. She was right there smiling when I saw the baby and the very next moment her health got serious. She just died and now my Dev…”
After the sudden death of his wife 2 months ago, Umesh didn’t even have time to grieve. He had to take care of his two children. He worked harder than he used to but nothing could bring back what he lost. His 4-year-old son would ask him about his mother but Umesh had nothing but tears to communicate.
I can't even work, how do I feed my son now?
“I can’t even go out to work. The food on our table comes only if I have worked for the day. With my baby at the hospital and elder son hungry at home… I feel so helpless and angry. Why is life being cruel to us?”
Umesh works as a daily wage labourer. It has already been tough on him to afford the treatment and with the coronavirus outbreak, it is impossible for him to even get those few hundreds that he earned. He sits helplessly at home, watching his children suffer.
Only you can help this father save his baby nowBaby Dev needs to stay in the ICU for at least 3 weeks now. Without support, Umesh will lose his son too. Your contribution can save Dev.
