The father who risked his life for his daughter
Fathers always put their children’s needs before theirs, but Harish actually put his daughter’s life before his own!
Harish Rohra was was diagnosed with kidney failure and was advised to undergo a transplant as soon as possible. But, Harish, who came from humble means couldn’t fund his treatment. “The medical bills piled up and my health stopped me from going to work” says Harish. However, his family and he worked together to save for his transplant but as soon as there were enough funds, another tragedy struck. His 5-year-old-daughter Parvati was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Alagille Syndrome and needed a new liver to survive. Harish had to choose between his transplant and his daughter’s and a father’s heart choose Parvati’s treatment over his own.
The treatment was successful and Parvati’s life was out of danger. However, Harish still needed a new kidney. Harish’s kindness and care was returned to him by the online community that helped him raise more than 8 lacs in just 60 days for his treatment on Impact Guru!

This father who is fighting for his son
A father cannot bear to see his child in pain, Ramakrishna is fighting against time for his 2-year-old son!
Ramakrishna has been given only 3 months to save his 2-year-old son’s life. Nihaal suffers from PFIC (Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis), a liver disorder from birth because of which he suffers intense itching. He keeps scratching his body rigorously day and night which often results in bleeding. He has difficulty eating and sleeping. Ramakrishna could not see his son cry of pain continuously. He tried all kinds of treatment possible and spent 3 lacs on medical bills. A labourer who earns daily wages that comes up to only Rs. 60,000/ year, Ramakrishna had to pick up loans to help his son.
Yet, nothing changed. Nihaal is still in pain and the doctors have said that a liver transplant would be the only way to save his life. However, the operation cost was 22 lacs! Ramkrishna, who is already in debt, didn’t know what to do and where else to go.
When the hospital informed him about Impact Guru and the possibility to get raise funds and get his son the correct treatment, Ramkrishna saw a ray of hope. Since then, he has been raising funds and has been working hard to spread the message and get more people to contribute for his beloved son’s health fund.
He is still fighting for his son’s life but Nihaal has very little time left. You can help him here!

Watching her father in the hospital was tough for Jayeeta, like it would have been for any other daughter. When her father needed a cardiothoracic surgery, she unflinchingly spent Rs. 17,00,000 of her hard-earned savings to ensure that he would be back in good health.
Unfortunately, he was again admitted back in the hospital, this time because of blood clots in his pulmonary cord and lungs. Having spent all her savings on her father’s previous treatment, Jayeeta had no other way of raising Rs. 5 Lacs that she now required. With the help of Impact Guru and support from friends, family, and well wishers, she started a campaign and raised some amount that helped her towards the expenses..
