Patricia Babu gave birth prematurely to twins, in her 30th week of pregnancy, at Madras Medical Mission Hospital. Her husband, Mr. Babu Rajendra Prasad, works as a chef in a private hotel for a monthly salary of INR 9000 and is the sole earning member of his family. As Babu and Patricia married for love, they did not have their families to support them during difficult times. Both the babies were put under ventilator care at the hospitalís Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which costs about INR 10000 child/day. Babu was unable to fund this treatment and was on the lookout for some form of help.
Dr.Venkatesh, who was the consultant for the children, approached EKAM and requested for support and treatment for one of the kids. As per the doctorís request, EKAM agreed to support the female baby of Patricia Babu. The child received six days of intensive care and was discharged as a healthy child. The medical expenses, that amounted to INR 60,519.
Mrs.Meera Menon is our Trustee has donated INR 40,000 for this child medication.
