Asking for help reveals the strength of a person, not weakness. You require a lot of courage to admit that you need help. It doesn’t come naturally. It is a sign of bravery. It shows that you aren’t afraid.

During the past few years, many people have been brave enough to ask for help on crowdfunding platforms. These people needed help in paying their medical bills during emergencies. With the help of donors they were able to successfully pay their medical bills, here is how

Here are some real-life examples of people who showed exemplary courage by asking for help on our platform: 

  1. A daughter’s determination to save her mother

What they said: 

“I lost my father 5 years back to an accident. All I have left now is my mother. She is a very kind woman. Ever since my father's death, my mother has been working hard to run the family. She did tailoring to earn money and pay for my education. All our savings has been utilized for her treatment so far. We have spent everything we had. Her further treatment is costing us Rs.15,00,000 more and we need funds to save her life.

As you can imagine, the next few days putting the focus on fighting this head-on comes not only with intense emotional and physical challenges but also a financial challenge.”

  1. A father’s cry for help to save his son from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

What they said: 

“I work in a private company and my wife is a housewife. We were so happy to be blessed with a baby boy. At the age of 3.5 years, our little boy was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Fate was against us and our child is in critical condition now. We are currently struggling to arrange for funds as this was very unexpected. The doctors have estimated that it might cost around  15 to 18 lakhs for the treatment of my child. I am sure my baby will fight this through and come out as my little champion. But he has to be given adequate treatment for it. We've drained all my savings. We have already spent around 15 lakhs from our savings and by borrowing money from others, now we are left with nothing and barely able to meet our daily expenses.”
