Hello dear family and friends,


This heart wrenching story is about my cousin, Binny Babu, who has been suffering with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease/kidney failure) since 2013.  After 7 years of anguish, his kidney disease has gotten worse and treatment options are limited to dialysis treatments and now a kidney transplant.  Binny, now 30 years old, found a kidney donor by the grace of God!  A transplant would offer him the ability to live a longer, healthier, more normal life.  Thus, he is in need of all of your help and support to raise the money necessary for this transplant to happen successfully in about 3 months.

 

The cost of transplant and post-transplant is 15 lakh Indian rupees equivalent to (£15,847) which needs to be raised.  

 Conversation rates : £1 = INR 95 (Rupees) , £10= INR 950, £50= INR 4750

  £1= $1.25,   £10= $12.50,  £20= $25,  £50= $62 , £100= $125

Binny’s mom, my aunt, was diagnosed with ESRD in 2009 and died in 2016 in the middle of her dialysis session in India.  She left behind her husband and two sons Bipin and Binny, both of who were diagnosed with Kidney failure in 2011 and 2013 simultaneously.

 The unimaginable suffering and pain rendered upon them due to severe illness didn’t stop there when CV Babu, their father, suffered a stroke which left him paralysed on one side.  Now unable to work and earn for the family, it left them financially crippled and forced them to leave the city of Mumbai where they grew up. They moved to Trissur, Kerala, India seeking help and support of family and friends. 

 

Bipin, the older sibling managed to get a kidney transplant in 2016, thanks to all the help and support from friends, family and strangers on GOFUNDME which raised around $16905.  Bipin has since been well and recovering thanks to all of you who very kindly donated.

 As If they were born to suffer, their father CV babu died few weeks ago ( after suffering from a fall and head injury leading to hypertension and cerebro vascular accident.  Uncle’s passing left both the brothers on their own helpless and broke with no healthy working family or insurance.
