 Story of a 6 year old

6-year-old baby successfully underwent a liver transplant on 16th January 2021, at Hyderabad, thanks to our initiative, Anudaan - Making Transplants Affordable. We received the support of many individuals and ‘Transplants Help the Poor Foundation’ and we were able to collectively raise Rs. 8.5 Lakhs. The hospital gave some concession and the transplant was made possible.

Hailing from Sirsapalli village, Huzurabad, Telangana, belongs to a low-income family that could never afford such an expensive transplant, without the support provided by ‘Anudaan – Making Transplants Affordable’. While her mother was willing to give a portion of her liver, the family was lacking the financial resources to go ahead.

MOHAN Foundation wishes her a long, healthy and happy life and thanks to all the supporters for their generosity.

MOHAN Foundation is going to continue raising funds for this initiative through various activities in the upcoming months as well, To know more about the cause, https://www.mohanfoundation.org/anudaan.asp
