Success story
Aug 2013

17 years
Medical Problem
Aortic Valve Pathology

Case Background

Sudharani is the 17 years old girl child of Mr. Krishna and Mrs. Vijaya.  Her parents work as pushcart vendors and earn around INR 400 a day.  Last year, Sudharani was diagnosed with a critical condition in her aortic valve at a medical camp organized by Ekam in partnership with the Hindu Mission Hospital(HMH). She was immediately admitted to HMH where she underwent an Aortic Valve Replacement Surgery on the 28th of August 2013.  As her family is from Andharpradesh she could not claim relief under the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s Insurance scheme.

Ekam’s Involvement

Understanding her family’s financial condition, Ekam volunteered to take up her case. We paid for the total hospitalization cost which came to around INR 1, 78,815, inclusive of surgery and medications. We still needed funds to settle the hospitalization expenses and so we approached the Women’s Welfare Syndicate that helped us raise funds for Sudharani through an advertisement.  

Current Status

She is not completely fine and is attending her school regularly.
