Every year on the eve of Durga Puja we gift new garments to all the beneficiaries of the Sahaj Path project.
Kholo Aankhi distributed 20000 halogen tablets in the village of Chotomollakhali in Sunderban devastated by Aila in 2009 through a medical camp organised by Voice of World, a Kolkata based NGO.
Associated with Special education and HEPSN [Higher Education for Persons with Special Need] Cell, Jadavpur University and Anya Bhuban – a voluntary organisation in recording study materials for visually challenged undergraduates and postgraduate students.
Medical Support: one of our beneficiaries of the Sahaj Path project of Kalyani is a Thalasaemea patient. Kholo Aankhi has taken the responsibility of his medical treatment including surgery since 2010. Now he is under the minimum medication and will complete his Diploma Engineering course in 2019.
Aishika Ghosh, a little girl, a patient of Thalasaemea major needs immediate Bone marrow transplantation. Kholo Aankhi is contributing to her regular medication, blood transfusion, and infusion pump and trying to collect funds for the operation also.
You may please remember Aishika Ghosh, a patient of Thallasemia major who needed immediate bone marrow transplantation from unrelated matching donor as she has no sibling. Tata Medical Centre gave an estimate of Rs.33 lacs for the whole process.
We appealed to you for support. In response to our appeal many individuals and some organisations extended their support in various ways. Her father arranged for a considerable fund required on his part including one time contribution of Rs.2 lacs from Kholo Aankhi.
Finally Aishika’s Bone Marrow Transplantation had been done successfully on 29th August 2019 at Tata Medical Centre, Rajarhat, New Town, WB.
In pre-hospitalisation period, Kholo Aankhi bore the cost of blood transfusion, medicines and chelation therapy with a machine for iron removal amounting to about a lac of rupees in total, which played a crucial role in preparing Aishika for transplantation. We stood by the side of the worried parents throughout the period and arranged for blood and platelets as needed after the operation from our friends and acquaintances. Now, she is under prolonged treatment under periodic check up of TMC. It will take at least one year to stabilize her condition under strict care and supervision.
We convey our thanks and gratitude to all of our friends and well wishers for coming forward with supports by donating and arranging blood and platelet and by helping financially to save the life of a little girl in response to our appeal. We wish Aishika’s speedy recovery.
