Another life saved due to the generosity of Nivaranam Donors. Kinosan aged 15 years from Settipalayam, Batticaloa underwent double valve replacement heart surgery on 21st of July 2017 @ Lanka Hospital. It’s a very complicated surgery which should’ve costed 12 Lakhs ($10,000). However, both Consultant Surgeon Dr. G.Gandhiji & Consultant Anesthetist Dr. P. Lushantha had waived off their professional charges for this surgery upon my request and the final bill should be less than Rs.600,000 ($5000). Special thanks to both of them and Dr. Raguram who coordinated the surgery with me. My foundation “Hearts For Humanity” (Nivaranam) has funded 1/3rd of that (Rs 200,000), while 1/3rd will be donated from the Presidents fund and the balance of 1/3rd was paid by the patient’s family. It’s impossible for poor families to bear the cost of surgeries. Usually it ends with the loss of a precious life. Let’s be that positive change!
