|“Do things for people not because of who they are or what they do in return, but because of who you are.” ~ Harold S. Kushner|
|Help someone because you can. Do things for yourself or for others because you WANT to, without any expectations or conditions. That is when it makes you happy, makes you a better person and adds some meaning to your life. This has been Ashvattha’s motto for a long time. We try to help because we want to and we can. Thank you all for joining us with the same motto and staying with us.|
Ashvattha received a request from one of our Volunteers to help Arif, a 23 year old from Repalle (Andhra Pradesh), who is suffering from Aplastic Anemia (bone marrow damage) since few months. What started as frequent fevers and normal doctor visits turned out to be a rare and serious life threatening problem. He was admitted to Care Hospitals in Hyderabad and doctors suggested immediate treatment with ATG + Cyclosporine and Electrombopag with necessary supports which would cost about 12 Lakhs. While the treatment costed a lot, coming from a poor financial background the family could afford only so much. They turned out to friends and family for help. Team Ashvattha visited Arif at Care Hospitals and donated an amount of Rs.20,000 to aid his treatment.
We hope and pray he recovers soon. Thank you Donors and Volunteers for helping Arif!
