Ridhi is a lively two-year-old, who lights up a room with her smile. Like many children her age, she delights in being the apple of
her parents' eye. Unlike many children her age, she suffers from acute myeloid leukemia, a life threatening form of blood cancer. Drained of financial support from the first round of his daughter's treatment, Pryandar Chauhan, turned to crowdfunding. Help poured in from every possible corner and the required amount was raised in just a week.
Poltu Bera, from Daulak Chak village in Hooghly, West Bengal, is a labourer, and a father of two. In 2011, he was headed to a certain death with a weak and enlarged heart. With the help of Ramakrishna Mission in Kolkata and its former students who rallied around to form a 30 member committee, a crowdfund was set up for Poltu's surgery.
Ridhi, and Poltu, are just two examples who have been given new leases of life, thanks to the goodwill of people. However, there are several more who need our help. And many of them don't have the financial backing for the medical treatment they or their loved ones need. This is where you can help by crowdfunding.
Crowdfunding is a popular method of giving to save lives. When Milind Rai was left helpless, unable to help his 23 year old brother who is in coma and suffering from cerebral infraction, he decided to crowdfund for the treatment expenses. He was able to raise around Rs. 6 lakhs in just 24 hours. A total of Rs. 12 lakhs was raised with generosity pouring in from across the country to save the young auto mobile designer.
