Why sponsor this child?
Samikshya is an innocent and friendly 5 year old girl who lives with her parents and 3 year old sister. Samikshya’s mother has a heart condition. The doctors say that her mother needs a heart valve transplant, which will cost Rs.300, 000 ($3,600), but due to their financial situation, they have been unable to get the procedure. The family needs to set aside Rs. 1,000 every month for her medicine. For a family that barely earns Rs.2, 000 ($24) per month, purchasing medicine for Samikshya’s mother is a hardship. Samikshya’s father also falls ill frequently due to his work by the river banks every day. There are days when they have to depend on their neighbor for food.
Samikshya’s mother says: “Samikshya makes sure I take my medicine every day. When Samikshya plays with her sister, she pretends to be a doctor.” Even though her mother is ill and weak, she is determined to educate her children. She says “I will crawl if I have to take my kids to school.” Samiksya is very young, but says she wants to become a doctor so that she can cure her mother. Your help will not only help to secure Samikshya’s future but also help her ill mother.
