Appeal for donations to save Shraddha's life.

Shraddha Gulabrao Sathe is an orphan girl in Snehalaya Rehabiliation center.  As a  dedicated student, she took up a vocational course in Nursing at Auxilium Community College, Savedi, Ahmednagar.  She successfully completed the course and joined Dr. Hemant Deshpande Hospital for internship, 6 months ago. She has been a very prompt and skilled Nurse and was promoted in a very short time for being a  caring and patient friendly.

Last month, she started complaining of stomach pains and Dr. Deshpande diagnosed that she is suffering from a rare condition of acute Budd Chirai Syndrome. She has  been taking treatment at Swastya Hospital. Because of accumulation of fluid, a condition called Ascites  she is unable to even sit, because of the pain.

Every six hours the fluid has to be extracted out of her abdomen in a painful procedure just to keep her alive. She has not able to take any food for the last 30 days. Now her condition has worsened and we have admitted her to K.E.M. Hospital, Mumbai under observation of Dr. Deshmukh (International Radiologist).  She has been advised to undergo  a major surgery within next 7 days.  The doctor believes that she can survive and can lead a normal life post surgery.  The estimated expense of the operation is Rs. 2.5 Lakhs. (Approx US $ 5,000)

While Snehalaya tries to provide the best possible care for all our inmates, we are unable to manage this huge unplanned expense for one inmagte. We appeal to all our well wishers to donate generously to save the life of Shradha, who is fighting for survival. 

You can send your donations by sending  a cheque to KEM hospital and mention the patient name (Ms. Shraddha Gulabrao Sathe).  The address is KEM Hospital, Acharya Donde Marg, Parel. Mumbai 400012. India.  Phone # +91 22 2413 6051
