Baby of Sowmya is a one month old baby with multiple holes in his heart. His parents haven’t named him yet. They are in tears and busy raising fund to keep him alive. He is admitted to Narayana Hrudyalaya Hospital in Bangalore(Hospital Id: 418292). A surgery costing Rs. 2.7 lakhs is an immediate solution. After five years another surgery is required to cure him completely. His parents are poor. The hospital has already offered them a discount of Rs. 50,000. His parents have gathered Rs. 26,000. A well wisher has raised Rs. 1 lakh. So, the baby needs about Rs. 1 lakh to stay alive.

Sep 22, 2012 - MicroCharity approves the fund request
MicroCharity decided to raise at least Rs. 50,000 to join the baby’s fight for life.

  The baby’s surgery is completed in Narayana Hrudyalaya,  Bangalore. Surgery was successful and he is recuperating well . Thanks for everyone who contributed for this cause

Mean time few other well wishers are able to raise some more funds for the baby hence MicroCharity decided to revise its target to Rs 30,000. We are hoping that with this Rs 30,000, we will be able to help the family with the final bill settlement in the hospital and also buy some medicines for them at the time of dis-charge from hospital
