Many families around us struggle to pay for critical & unprecedented health emergencies. They either leave families in financial debt or make them give up hope of saving their loved ones. Very few have insurance facilities, and even if they do, it is not enough. Karunya Seva CSW Trust envisions a platform that will support families to overcome such emergencies, save lives and spread awareness.
Vitus Dsouza, PPC Leader – St Paul’s Community, needs your Support
I am Mrs. Sandra Dsouza, wife of Mr. Vitus Dsouza. I want to bring to your attention that my husband has been admitted in the ICU of Thunga Hospital, Mira Road for the treatment of Obstructive Airway Disease (OAD)/ Obesity. He is diagnosed to have Lower Tract Infection with type II Respiratory failure. The cost of the Hospital stay with Medicines has reached an exceptionally high number. I am a housewife & don’t have any source of income. My husband has not been working since last 4years,
So far, we were living off the income of my daughter who was the only working person in the family. My Son has just got a job in Dubai (less than a month back) and my daughter who was working in Dubai has come back to be with us since I alone am not able to manage things. During this time, we had our children’s friends & some of our family friends help us with finances.
It would be a humble request from my end to provide us financial aid due to economical constraints. As the bills have come up to an amount where we have used up our savings as well.
