“Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws” ~ Barbara Kingsolver.
The struggle that parents go through to save their children just cannot be explained in words. And, a mother’s pain is unimaginable. It is her strength and hope that gives life to a child. Here is a heart melting story of a mother who is trying to save her newborn twins. 

After a long wait Sachin and Deepali were going to be parents and were very excited to welcome a new member to their family. To their pleasant surprise the doctor said they are going to have twins and they were really happy. However, throughout the pregnancy Deepali had several issues. She was admitted to the hospital thrice and she lost a lot of blood. The pandemic made it even more difficult to find hospitals and they even had to travel to Mumbai to get her admitted. And, at the time of delivery her uterus was infected and she needed an emergency C-section as the infection had reached the babies lungs. The babies were born with lung infection and were struggling to breathe with their weak lungs. The doctors are trying their best every single day to cure the babies. The family is doing everything possible to bring the babies home healthily and start living with them. But, they were zapped with the hospital bills and the treatment cost about 40 lakhs. They spent the last rupee they own and used all the help they can. 
One of the donors of Ashvattha referred this request to us and our volunteers talked to Deepali. She broke into tears while explaining their situation. It was heartbreaking to listen to her pain. Team Ashvattha donated an amount of Rs.50,000 to help save the twin babies.

We recently heard from Deepali that one of the twin babies has recovered and is home. The family is very happy to welcome the baby home and hoping the other twin also will recover soon. The parents thanked Team Ashvattha for all the help. Let’s pray for the speedy recovery of the second twin as well. Thank you for all the donors of Ashvattha for being a great help for this family!
