These amazing fathers would do anything (and we mean anything) to save their little ones. Read on about their amazing journey.
This man who walked 4 km everyday for his daughter’s treatment:
In a tragic incident in Jharkhand, a daily wage laborer’s nine-year-old daughter was brutally raped by a local driver. She managed to escape the incident with her life, but by no means unharmed. The incident left her intestines badly ruptured, mandating her to get a colectomy, removing all parts of her colon. Now, this little girl must carry a colostomy bag for life.
Due to no transportation facilities in their village, this girl’s father would walk 4 km everyday to the nearest hospital to dress his daughter’s wounds and provide her with proper treatment, keeping his job, and consequently his income, on hold. We managed to raise over 2 lakh on Ketto for this father daughter duo, providing the child adequate treatment and the father enough support. Check out the campaign here.
This man who was prepared to sell a kidney to cure his kid:
A hardware store employee, Srinivasulu, raised multiple loans to treat his only child, three-year-old Shrivardhan, who was struck by a severe case of dengue shock and his life was in danger as he had been hospitalized at a very late stage. Despite having raised loans to pay for his treatment, Srinivasulu was still short of funds, and was seriously considering selling a kidney.
Lucky for him, he didn’t have to, and support came in the form of Dr. Suchitra Ranjit and Sonali Ranjit, who managed to raise over 4.4 lakh on Ketto for little Srivardhan. Check out this campaign here.
Apart from the fact that they were both funded on Ketto, what do these stories have in common? Both these men were at a complete loss of funds, and hope. Our country is riddled with such cases, where many are unaware of the array of options they have. If you happen to come across someone who needs support, be it for medical expenses, shelter or any other cause, do introduce them to Ketto or start a campaign for them! Together we can make big differences by doing a little bit.
