“30% of my salary goes on the rent. And with the remaining, I am struggling hard to bear all the other expenses. My savings is almost negligible and I am still settling the debts.”
A fall that resulted in catastrophic complications
However, the family delayed the operation, which was then the only way to cure him. “What could I do? I had no money to bear my child’s medical expenses. And neither could I go to any of my relatives for help. We were perplexed and did not know how to comfort Sam Jeevan”- Guru.

“Since childhood, my baby has been suffering. He was born premature and placed in the NICU on the ventilator for almost 2 weeks. I could not even see or hold my child for long during that time." - Indira

I knew salvaging his hand at HCG would be expensive, but what choice is it for a parent to take away your son's hand?” asks Indira.
