Ramkumar and Sumitha are struggling to get their 2 month old discharged from the hospital. Their little baby was born with critical aortic stenosis and had to undergo balloon valvuloplasty on Feb 17, 2016 at G Kuppuswamy Naidu Memorial Hospital, Coimbatore. The hospital had given an initial estimate of Rs. 2.5 lakhs, but the expenses shot up to Rs.3.25 lakhs. The family has pledged all they having including gold and valuables to raise this money. But they are short of Rs.45,000 and due to this, the hospital is refusing to discharge the little baby from the past 4 days.
Ramkumar is working as a share trading executive in a Motilal Oswal franchise in Coonoor earning Rs.12,000/month and his wife Sumitha is a home maker. They live in a rented house, and have an older son, studying in 1st standard. He has exhausted all known sources in borrowing funds, and approached MicroCharity for financial assistance.
