Case Background

Sherina was born on the 2nd of April, 2002 to Mr.Yesukumar and Mrs. Indhumathy. She is first child of the family. Mr.Yesukumar works as a painter and earns about INR 300 a day.  Indhumathy is a housewife. When she was five years old, Sherina fainted while at school. She was treated at a local clinic but continued to suffer from frequent headaches and vomiting. The doctors in the clinic sensed a need for surgery and advised the parents to take their child to a hospital with advanced facilities. The parents, who come from an economically poor background feared the expenses they would have to incur for their child’s treatment.

Ekam’s Involvement

The family finally got to know of Ekam, through people in their community, and approached us for help. We validated their family details and referred the case to Kanchi Kamakoti Child Trust Hospital, located at Nungambakkam, Chennai. She was diagnosed with ethmoid and maxillary sinusitis. Ethmoid sinusitis refers to an infection in the ethmoid sinuses which are located near the bridge of our noseSinuses are air-filled pockets located in your skull and facial bones. She was immediately admitted in the hospital for treatment and underwent a minor surgery. She received five more days of treatment in the Intensive Care Unit before getting discharged as a healthy child. Ekam took care of the entire hospitalization and medication costs.  
Current Status

Sherina is now a healthy child and is living happily with her family.
