K R Vivek was a healthy, dynamic, 24-year old, just one month into his new job, when tragedy turned his life upside down in the form of a bike accident. Hailing from Coimbatore in Tamilnadu, Vivek had barely completed a month in his new job at Martin and Group, when he met with an accident on August 27th, 2015. He was rushed to Ganga Hospital where he underwent multiple surgeries to his spine and clavicle. After couple of months in the hospital, he was discharged recently. But, Vivek has almost no sensation waste-down, and cannot talk since his tongue was damaged. He is recovery slowly, but would need many more months of physiotherapy before he can be on his feet again. The family has already spent Rs. 8.5 lakhs, of which Rs.5.25 lakhs is borrowed from friends and well-wishers. Vivek’s employer also covered approximately Rs.2 lakhs of his medical bill.
Vivek’s family has no other source of income at present. His dad, a long-standing employee with Indian railways, is disabled after his leg was amputated due to diabetes. His mother, Priya, recently underwent an operation at ESI hospital and is just recovering from the complications. His only sibling is doing 1st year MSc. The family is in dire need of financial assistance to cover the on-going treatment for Vivek and also to pay back the loans taken. They approached MicroCharity for support.
