62-year old Rajan and his family is in dire need of our assistance. He was diagnosed with stomach cancer 2.5 years ago. He was treated at Amrita medical college where he had to spend a lot of money. He then went to Cochin Cancer research centre at Kalamassery for chemotherapy and other treatments. The current treatment involves one injection per month for a year, each costing Rs. 25,000 at a total of Rs. 3 lakhs.
Rajan was working as a manager in a hotel in Delhi. He came back to Kerala three years back and was staying in a rented house at Aluva. During the flood of 2018, he lost all his possessions. The family then shifted to a rented apartment at Kakkanad. Rajan’s wife is ill and cannot go for work. His daughter completed 12th grade and is working in a call centre now. The only income for this family is his daughter’s salary, which is barely enough to cover their rent and daily expenses. The family is struggling to manage the injection costs and they reached out to MicroCharity for financial assistance.
