It is safe to say that a medical emergency is the most unwelcome visitor in a home. No family member is ever truly prepared for the mental and physical toll it takes to see a family member suffering from a critical illness. To ease their pain and aid their recovery, quality and affordable medical treatment is their number one requirement.




While we may not have much control over a medical diagnosis, we do have different means of raising funds to make sure that the required medical treatment is received at the earliest. A relatively recent form of fundraising for treatment and medicines is medical crowdfunding wherein anyone can start a fundraiser to receive financial help to fast track their or their loved one’s recovery. This is precisely what many farmers did on India’s trusted medical crowdfunding platform - ImpactGuru. This, not only helped them raise crucial funds without delay but also receive the right treatment at the right time!




Below are 3 such stories where farmers in India started a fundraiser to raise funds for their and their dear ones’ medical treatment.



  1. Meet Atul, A Farmer From West Bengal


41-year-old Atul Roy led a simple life. The farmer was the sole breadwinner of the family of 4 - a wife and two young kids. However, Atul’s world came crashing down when the doctors said,” You have Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Blood Cancer.” Only an urgent Bone Marrow Transplant could free Atul from clutches of cancer.


On seeing Atul's deteriorating health, his wife Bhagwati decided to raise funds for his medical treatment. They started a fundraiser on ImpactGuru, and the reaction was incredible! 


  • The fundraiser met its goal in just 147 days!

  • Atul received love and support from 2039 kind-hearted donors.

  • His fundraising raised a remarkable sum of ₹ 27,22,858, far exceeding his original goal of ₹ 17,25,000.


The power and compassion of the crowd should never be underestimated. Everyone is willing to help; all you need to do is ask for a helping hand.
