Help a 4 yr old boy Santhosh

Dear Friends,

Please spare a few minutes of yours. Its a genuine case for saving a 4 yr old boy named Santhosh. The necessary documents are produced in this blog. See at the bottom.

The request letter from his father Shankar Babu is in the mail content. Please try to help a person who is struggling to save his son.

I kindly request you to please forward this to your friends (you can forward the link of this blog) circle as well so that some of them might help without your knowledge.

For any details or queries, you can contact me @ Raghavan dot 30May1981 at gmail dot com. I have already collected some amount and if some of you would also join, we can send the consolidated amount to the needy.

If you wish and you can, you may please directly send your contributions to the Madras ENT Research Foundation as mentioned in ShankarBabu’s mail.

Many Thanks,
Raghavan alias Saravanan M.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Sub: Requesting Medical aid for my 4 year old son

I am pleased to introduce my self as K.Shankarbabu residing at 40/41, Raghava Nagar, 2nd street, Madipakkam, Chennai – 600 091. I am working as a driver in Arjunan Travels, Madipakkam, Chennai and earning Rs.3000 per month, which is not sufficient to meet even the daily needs. My son Master.S.Santhosh, aged 4 years has been diagnosed to have profound hearing loss right from the birth. He is getting treatment at Madras ENT Research Foundation (P) Ltd.,Chennai. He has to undergo cochlear implantation – a sophisticated ear surgery as soon as possible to regain his hearing ability. This sophisticated ear surgery is being done only in a few centers in Asia and costs about Rs.6,12,000. The date for the surgery has been tentatively fixed in the later half of this year – 2007. The certificate issued by Dr.Mohan Kameswaran (Madras ENT Research Foundation) is attached herewith for your reference.

I am the only earning member in my family and my son S.Santhosh has already undergone heart surgery at the age of 3 months at Egmore Children’s hospital, Chennai. In this situation I am unable to meet the necessary medical expenses.

I humbly request your good self to kindly look into this matter and arrange for necessary medical aid for my son at the earliest. Donations can be made in favor of Madras ENT research foundation charitable trust A/c S.Santhosh , Chennai. Donations are exempted under Sec 80 G of IT ACT.

Expecting your favourable necessary action in this regard,

Thanking you,
Yours truly,
