Subject: urgent need for blood platelets

One of my close  friends and colleagues  , Pradeep Behera , is undergoing treatment at P.D. Hinduja Hospital,for carcinoma - colon as well as impacted tumour on the coccyx. He is undergoing chemo and needs blood platelets urgently  as they keep reducing at an alarming rate . 

The hospital wants healthy male donors below 50 who would be  screened for suitability to donate blood for platelets. Thereafter, suitable donors shall be contacted for donation of blood platelets, as need arises, since blood platelets have a limited shelf life.

Further the hospital has also  advised  that the donors should have a body weight of at least 60 kilograms and should not currently be under medication nor have suffered from Jaundice, malaria or typhoid in the last one year.

In case you know of anyone who is willing to donate platelets could you let me know and I'll put them in touch with my colleagues in Mumbai ?

A young man with a head injury needs a job

We received this request from Vaibhav Patil who has been actively helping IH cases, most notably Poonam Singh who was injured in 26/11 and needed physiotherapy.
If there is any organisation which could help him get a job or rehabilitated do let us know, he is literate and has studied up to SYBcom. He was working as a general workman at a company in Trombay when he was injured.

"I am attaching along a bio data of 22 yr old Siddhesh who met with an accident on 14/08/2009 and suffered head injury because of which he has been claimed to be 65% disabled. His mother works as a nurse at the K.EM Hospital. Only thing that worries me is his young age and idleness. So,with the help of our blog India Helps,if we can get a small job for him,it would make his life a great difference.
Kindly have a look at the biodata and do the needful.

Dear Friend,

I am writing to you today to help people severely affected by Cyclone Thane which has devastated Cuddalore District in Tamilnadu and Puducherry.

As the rest of India was preparing to celebrate New Year Eve, Cyclone Thane took 48 lives and impacted more than 800,000 people on December 30.

As a first response, our office in Chennai has assessed the extent of damage, and the need of the hour is shelter, electricity and clean water.

CARE is already working with affected families providing them with tarpaulins, candles, matchboxes as well as floor mats and hygiene kits particularly focusing on pregnant mothers and adolescent girls.

Our aim is to reach out to 20,000 most vulnerable families immediately, and going forward build 100-150 low cost houses for the poorest of the poor who have lost their dwellings and have no means to reconstruct them.

These families need Rs 2.5 crores to rebuild their lives. Here and NOW.

While we will pool in our resources, we must reach out for funds from people like you who have helped so many in the past by donating to worthwhile causes.

I look forward to your help and contribution. Please donate online at OR send your cheque/draft in favour of CARE India to E- 46/12 Okhla Industrial Area, Phase II, New Delhi 110020.


Kind Thanks,
Dr. Muhammad Musa
CEO & Country Director, CARE India

PS: CARE has been working in India for over 60 years in the areas of health, education, livelihoods and disaster response. Specifically in the Cuddalore district, CARE has worked since 2005 on rehabilitation and reconstruction projects through the Tsunami Response Program to address needs of poor and marginalized communities.
