Sinomon from Idukki, Kerala has been suffering from kidney failure for the past 5 years and is undergoing regular dialysis. Each dialysis costs about INR 1,000 and he need about 2 or 3 sessions a week. Kidney transplant is the only solution, but the family has no means to go ahead with it. 3 months back, while going for dialysis, Sinomon met with an accident and suffered a leg fracture. So currently he needs treatment for that as well.
He was working as a daily wage laborer, but currently he is not able to work after the leg injury. Currently, he is currently staying in a home for the destitute where they provide at least the basic meals. Sinomon’s mother goes for some government-sponsored daily wage work, which is the only income for the family. But that is not regular, and she hardly earns enough to sustain the family. They reached out to MicroCharity for help with the dialysis.
