Pranati came with a relative to my mother's clinic for a check up.
Dr.Singhvi (My mother) has asked her to eat well, she has digestion
problems, has bad eating habits - does not eat nutritious food, and
has a hemoglobin count problem too.
The doctor has prescribed medicines- cost less than Rs 100 and Pranati
paid and has asked her to do a colour sonography after 10 days. I will
pay for the colour sonography.
Based on the sonography further decisions will be taken. My mother
speaks Bengali and that was a huge comfort factor for Pranati. She
will turn 34 this year. She needs to work even if 4 hours a day. She
would like to home at lunch time to see her son who is in the 9th std
First focus - get her health okay.
Next - Job ...she needs to get independent for the long term. Right
now she gets funds.
Orissa is devastated by floods. Rescue work is overwhelmed with
demand. Brave people are risking their lives to save more.
One such person, Ashwini Kumar died last week after saving 60 people
stranded on a rooftop in the flood. He fell into the water after the
rescue and in spite of being a strong swimmer, was missing for two
days when his body was found. He is to be recommended for the
president's medal for his bravery in saving lives.
He leaves behind a widowed mother and now widowed wife and no male
members in the family - in a rural environment. He had been married
about two months ago. Their family circumstances are not economically
comfortable. They don't have a phone or mobile. To contact them, one
can reach through his uncle, Mr Panchanan Kanungo at 9438360849. While
the honor of a president's medal is great, this family needs support
to sustain themselves. I have not spoken with them. I don't know what
form this support should be, but from what I hear immediately, it
seems some regular financial contributions, at least till a source of
income can be developed would be needed.
Some individuals are stepping up to say they would like to help, but
nothing concrete is known yet. Besides, such support cannot be counted
on to endure once the spotlight is gone.
My dear Kiranji,
My friend Sugandha's husband has been admitted to the KG Medical
College (KGMC) and has been diagnosed with Dengue. He is critical and
his survival depends on immediate transfusion of 15 bottles of blood.
Please call Sugandha on 08604523055 to help.

Following are the details we want you to share, Pls visit
Madhu is 14 year old but look likes a 4 years old little girl. She is
a bright student of 6th class who wish to become a doctor when she
grow-up. She is suffering from a rare medical condition known as
"Isolated Growth Hormone Deficiency" and currently doing routine
follow-ups at AIIMS Endocrinology OPD to become a normal bubbly girl
of her age.
Madhu belongs to a lower middle class family and her father is a
schoolteacher in a backward region of Nepal, who find it tough to meet
Now, the good news for Madhu is that her treatment is possible but the
cost of growth hormone therapy is approximately Rs. 2 Lacs per year
for next 4-5 years. (as per documents provided by AIIMS to this girl).
Many conditions which interfere with children's growth are treatable.
Insulin, growth hormone, thyroid hormone, and now insulin-like growth
factor are medications which are as close to nature as possible.
Children with a wide range of growth deficiencies have had wonderful
results thanks to growth hormone and other treatments.
GH is usually administered as a daily injection under the skin.
Because adults tend to have more side effects than children, their
treatment often begins at a low dose and then is raised gradually.
AIIMS also mentioned in the certificate that in absence of this
therapy , She is likely to suffer from serious physical and social
consequences of short stature and this treatment is essential for her.
Her medical condition has made her mature even before time, but she
love watching hindi movies of her favorite actors Hrithik Roshan and
Preity Zinta and can sing so many beautiful songs if you request.
Like many sick children, Madhu is both symptom and cause. Her lack of
proper treatment is reason enough for not only forcing the
frail-looking girl to miss school for few months while she searches
for some help, but dragging her poor family into debt.
Mission of your Uday Foundation is to provide free professional help
to the children with congenital defects through counseling, education,
information and referral and direct financial assistance. If you wish
to learn more about Madhu or wish to help her, Please write to

Worldvision relief team are on their way to Mangan Sikh Sangat of
Siliguri likely to go upto Tung on 23rd with necessary relief aid.
Meeting at the Siliguri Gurdwara tomorrow. A Team of SNTM Doctors just
left for Lingzya, Dzongu via Singtam & Dikchu. The team is going on
their own accord, albeit with the knowledge of the Department. This is
not to be taken as a State initiative. The doctors have pooled in
money to hire the vehicles themselves and carry with them as much
medical supplies as they can. The Sikkim Chamber of Commerce is
collecting relief materials, both in cash and kind and sending a team
with supplies to Mangan tomorrow. Anyone willing to support can
contact me at +919434094359 or Ashok Sarda at +919733015188 Just to
inform you that NGOs WWF, KCC, ECOSS, ATREE along with forest
officials and a team of doctors have organised a relief team for
Dzongu. We are taking some supplies up to Lingzya today and hope to
move upto Sakyong Pentong. A rescue team reached Bay village finally
through rough terrain yesterday and managed to recover 5 bodies out of
seven. Sakyong Pentong have been totally cut off and a helicopter team
of SAP is supposed to land there today. VHAS has also sent a team to
Dzongu. Mika and Ugen of MLAS are already working there. The central
Disaster managment team chaps are proving to be a liability - totally
unprepared and unable to cope with the terrain and the people. It is
very surprising that the SAP have till now not been given a proper
role to play in the rescue efforts. ECOSS, KCC and ATREE have donated
Rs 10,000 each and WWF is going to chip in with cash and materials of
around Rs 1-2.5 lakhs. We have started taking donations for the relief
in ECOSS account - Ecotourism & Conservation Society of Sikkim Axis
Bank MG Marg Account No. 112010100117012. Pl pass the word around. Raj
Basu of Help tourism has also promised help and so has the Rotary club
and others. (Email from RP Gurung, CEO ECOSS) Members of Travel Agents
Association of Sikkim ( TAAS) Commits Rs. One Lakh One Thousand(
Rs.1,01,000.00) to the Sikkim Chief Ministers Relief Fund for the
rescue and Relief from this Himalayan Earthquake in Sikkim. We are
with our PEOPLE in all walks of our LIVES. With all our Prayers for
SIKKIM. It reflected to me many years back of "Mero Mirik Campaign"
where we had helped victims of major Landslide in Mirik. I have been
feeling restless and thinking of those people who have survived and
helped not yet reached. I have been getting messages from Dzongu
(Sakyong Penthong) where help has still not reached as it does not
fall in the North Sikkim Highway. I have travelled earlier so much to
North Sikkim and known the steepness of the hills beyond Mangan. It
gives me a sleepless nights to understand how people are coping with
the open air, full of rain and help yet to reach while I rest in a
comfortable bed. So I have started a campaign to help those in need
with my organisation which has been Govt. Registered. My utmost
concern is to help with the major emergency items like Warm blankets,
warm clothes, (As north Sikkim is cold and also winter is
approaching), energy drinks, Torch lights with batteries, portable
tents, vitamins, medicines(common ones like for headache, fever, cold
etc), water bottle, shoes, sleeping mattress, sleeping bags, etc.. I
have also started analysing on Kalimpong villages and found out that
many houses have collapsed. Unfortunately they seem to be the poorest.
Today i am visiting Mangmaya as it happened to my ancestral place and
called by uncle to see many of our BPL neighbours whose house are no
more. Our organisation's name is Glenn Family Foundation Trust which
is locally registered in Kalmipong with local members. We will be
giving tax rebate to those who will financially help as we are
registered under 80G of the Income tax act. Our team will work on a
blog and FB to see how our donations and work is being done. I have
contacted my friends from Sikkim who will coordinate in our
distribution. I will be off to North Sikkim on Monday. Regards/Saom
The Bar Association of Sikkim a registered association of advocates
has initiated the 18th September Earthquake Relief Fund. We have
obtained the necessary permission from the District Collector. Anybody
willing to contribute in cash or kind may contact. Bhaskar Raj
Pradhan, General Secretary 9933355335.
This is a personal appeal from my side for contribution towards medical expenses of Pratiksha Jadhav, the daughter of my maid Preeti Jadhav.
Partiksha all of 14 years of age is a very bright student studying at the Versova Welfare School and is the only child of Preeti, a single parent having no relatives in mumbai. A week back Pratiksha has been admitted in a semi paralyzed state to the Belle-Vue Nursing Home at Manish Nagar, Andheri. Post a plethora of expensive tests she has been diagonised with Guillian Barre' Syndrome http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001704/, which is more frightening than it sounds. This little understood infection which is still in the realm of medical research is specific to asian countries, attacks the immunological system and results in an individuals defence system attacking the victims own body. Survival rates are not very good but are known to be better for youngsters.
Currently, the only course recommended this infection is a daily dose of 3 immununoglobulins injections over a period of 5 days, a total of 15. Each injections costs around Rs. 15,000/- which we have managed to negotiate down to Rs. 10,000/-. The entire cost of this immediate treatment is currently around Rs. 2 Lacs and I am enclosing a letter from the hospital for the same. Preeti works hard all day long to provide the best education for her only child and earns an monthly income of around Rs. 10,000/- and pays a rent of Rs. 4,000/- and has fixed deposits of around Rs. 40,000/. This situation is clearly beyond her financial means. Post this treatment which should save Pratiksha's life, medication would be needed for most of her life.
The Shingwekar family has made substantial contributions and is committed to bringing in more cash for the treatment. Several other families who know Preeti are also pitching in. I have already spoken to a few charitable trusts who have promised all help.
If you would like to contribute to Pratiksha medical treatment (it would be perfectly alright if you don't), you can make a cheque directly in the name of Belle Vue Nursing Home. I can assure you that my own self and my immediate family would be involved in the actual usage of your contribution and receipts for the same would be drawn in your name.
Thanks and regards,
My close friend is going through a very critical situation, which I am detailing here below.
I personally wish to request you to go through the appeal and extend your helping hand.
Also I request your help in reaching this appeal to maximum people who can contribute to this cause.
Every support you give will help him to save his wife, who is fighting for life.
Every kind of help you provide is acceptable.
Thanks and Regards

Hey,As you might already know, I am Trustee with an NGO called Jana Rakshita that has been working with the underprivileged in India, primarily focusing on Cancer and Education. Ours is a registered Trust and we're proud to have helped more than 1100 lives since the time of our inception in the year 2004, but only with the support of you and our friends.
We have been trying to raise funds for this really tragic case of a beautiful little 2 year old boy Aarav, suffering from Liver cancer, for a couple of days now and just as I am writing this, he is being wheeled into the Operation Theater for an emergency surgery due to some recent complications he developed whilst in the ICU. His arteries have begun to leak and they're hoping to try and operate on the tumors if possible. This was unexpected and puts this case on our Top Priority. As dramatic as this may sound, we need immediate help so he can pay up for his surgeries. Dr Sachin Almel from Hinduja Hospital (Mumbai) who is treating Aarav has talked to the Hospital authorities and bought a couple of days time to pay up the bills.Our NGO - Jana Rakshita has had many cases this month and very few donors as always. And hence we're reaching out to you, to please help us help Aarav. Please check the attached document that was written out earlier today, before the recent emergency.More details about our NGO will soon be available on our website. Bad timing, but we had a website up all this while and just pulled it down a few days ago to put up a new one. Please stay tuned in to www.janarakshita.org for updated content and details about our NGO and our activities. Alternatively, you can also call us or drop in to meet us at our office for details. Our work and accounts are open to all.
Hoping to hear back from you as soon as possible. I also request you to pass this email on to as many people as you can.If you have any further questions, you can contact us on the below numbers:-

Sub : Request for financial help.
My son Master Suraj Patil ( age 17 yrs) has polio in his left leg.
The leg was a little bent. It was operated three times and a steel
rod was inserted. After 5 years of operation, due to a fall while
playing he was again hurt and ankle got twisted and started paining,
When shown to Dr. Mangal Parihar at Mangal Anand Hospital, Chembur,
Mumbai, ( Maharashtra, India) he advised for another immediate
operation. The cost Including operation charges & hospitalisation etc.
is estimated around Rs. 1.5 lacs.
My meagre salary in no way will be sufficient to meet this huge
expense. Voluntary donations from generous people will only rescue
my child from this major handicap and I earnestly pray for help.
Those who are desirous of extending financial help, can send the money
directly to my Bank A/c. No. 43010400004862 with IDBI Bank, Thane
Branch ( Maharashtra) or by cheque in favour of Ramachandra B Pail
at Room NO. 6, Gajanan Krupa Society, Shingre Wadi, Bail Bazar, Kurla
