“You couldn’t miss that sound if you were in the same room as my baby. It was as if he couldn’t breathe because something was stuck in his throat. His toes and palms were turning blue - I was not ready to waste a single moment. But the doctors told me that I had nothing to worry. You wouldn’t question a doctor, would you?” - Habib Uddin, father.
But his baby boy got only worse with time. Medicines didn’t work and his breathing trouble aggravated. Now the baby is fighting for his life in the ICU, unable to breathe without support. Habib Uddin and his wife, Afreen, are spending sleepless nights thinking if they can save their son.
My son’s struggle began when he was 21 days oldA healthy baby at birth, Nizam was the apple of his parents’ eyes. They felt blessed. The young parents wanted to give their son the best of everything. They had no idea that just 21 days after he was born, Nizam would be battling a heart disease.
“Doctors had told us that surgery is the only option. But even after that he is not getting better. Afreen can’t stop shedding tears. All she does is pray for Nizam while I run around trying to arrange the money.”
We share a meal that costs us Rs 50 - I have nothing left with me nowHabib Uddin needs about 7 lakhs for his son’s treatment. Nizam needs to stay in the hospital for at least a few more months. Otherwise, his life is in danger.
“I can’t even buy ourselves two full meals. There is no way that I would be able to arrange for so much money, without help. My relatives have turned their backs on us, only you can help me now.”
Habib Uddin is an AC technician, he makes around Rs 8000 per month. He has been running around with his sick baby for the last one month. His savings are over. But this father hasn’t lost hope. He wants to see his child, smiling and happy. You can help him.
