Case Background

Yuvaraj was born to Mrs. Nathiya and Mr. Murugan on the 22nd of December, 2011, at the Chengalpet Government Hospital. Right after birth, he was facing difficulties in breathing and was immediately shifted to the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for oxygen support. The baby’s health showed no improvement even after 6 days of ventilator support and so the doctors suggested shifting the child to a private hospital. Mr. Murugan, who works as a coolie and earns about INR 100/day, could not afford a treatment in a private hospital.
Ekam’s Involvement

Dr.Sathya, the Nodal Officer at Chengalpet GH, referred this child to Ekam. Without any delay, we shifted the child to Kanchi Kamakoti Child Trust Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with issues of intrauterine hypoxia, meconium stained amniotic fluid, pneumonia, upper airway obstruction and sepsis.  The child was under ventilator care for about 21 days and his health improved tremendously. The total hospitalization and medication cost came to INR 116754. Meanwhile, the child’s parents also reached out to Women’s Welfare Syndicate for financial support. The below mentioned donors were very helpful in helping Ekam support this child’s case.
1.    Women’s Welfare Syndicate – Rs.33,154/-
2.    Shirdi Sai Trust – Rs.20,000/-
3.    Mr.Ravi –Rs.500/-
4.    Mr.Vinoo Karthick – Rs.1,000/-
           
Current Status

Yuvaraj is now 2 years old and is growing happily with his family. We sincerely thank all the donors who helped us in treating this child.
