Appeal Summary
Abarna is a four month baby, suffering from a heart problem which is life threatening. Her condition is called as “blue baby” which means she gains blue colour (due to lack of oxygen) and have repeated lung infections. She needed a surgical correction and was hence operated upon. However as she was brough in late there are quite a few complications needing atleast one more month of hospitalization.She was referred for the surgery from ICH,Egmore under the Illam Sirar Thittam. She underwent the corrective surgery on 05.04.2010.Her early post operative period was smooth and was off ventilatory support on 11.04.10.As she has been ventilator dependent for a long time, her recovery will be gradual and she is likely to need ICU stay for at least for a one month. Because of her complicated surgery and prolonged hospital stay, her medical bills would exceed Rs.3,00,000/-The funding available so far is Rs.1,40,000/-Manickam - father of abarna - is an agricultural labourer and earns around Rs. 2000/- per month. He has pawned his wife’s jewellery and also borrowed money from others. Some of which was used Abarna’s treatment some for taking care of their stay arrangement in Chennai. They have been in Chennai for the past three months (that is how long Abarna has been in the ICU). Father has now taken up a job of stone crushing in a quarry in Chennai to take care of their needs (stay, food, transportation, etc). The entire family is really struggling to provide the best medical care for their child. Both the husband and wife many a times skip lunch to save on money. They need all our support in raising Rs.1, 60,000 /- for Abarna’s treatment.The baby have also been referred to WWS for financial support.
