My name is Nagaraj  Prabhu and I am raising funds for Chaitra who is suffering from short bowel syndrome and is undergoing treatment at Apollo Hospital Bannerghatta Road. The treatment is costing us Rs. 30,00,000 and we need funds to continue the treatment and save her life. Please help us raise the required amount by clicking on the donate button and sharing this fundraiser with family and friends.

We are grateful for your help!

Chaitra is a 23-year-old who needs an urgent small-bowel transplant. A complication in her pregnancy left to the stillbirth of her child and later gangrene in her intestines. Her intestines had to be removed and since then, she has been bedridden and needs injections every day. Everyone but her husband Nagesh has distanced himself from her. The transplant can give Chaitra her life back.

Chaitra has lost 60% of her body weight


Just a few months back, Chaitra was like any 23-year-old – full of dreams and hopes. She was going to deliver her baby and then study law and then become an 'educated woman'.

Nagesh is talking about March 29, when Chaitra had developed sudden back and gastric pain. Since the pregnancy was quite advanced, Nagesh decided to take her to the hospital immediately. Turned out Chaitra had a hernia that had caused gangrene in her stomach. Her small intestine had to be removed.

The gangrene had also affected Chaitra's baby and it was stillborn. Since then, Chaitra has not been bedridden – unable to stand for too long due to disorientation and nausea.  She has lost 42kgs and weighs just 24 kgs now. She is weak and sad because of losing her child. 

Chaitra's parents have given up on her.

Chaitra's parents are under the mistaken impression that there is no way to save their daughter. They have stopped visiting her and that has really affected Chaitra's morale.

Making ends meet has become impossible because Chaitra needs an injection worth Rs 3,000 every day. Without it, she develops rashes and her condition becomes much worse.Nagesh has already spent all his savings and borrowed heavily for Chaitra's treatment this far. 

One transplant can give Chaitra her life back.

At the moment, Chaitra feels like she has lost everything. A bowel transplant will make her better and give her back a will to live. She is young and has a good chance of making a complete recovery. But the procedure costs Rs 30 lakhs, an amount that this young couple has no hope of raising that amount.

Help them cross this difficult period in their lives and contribute towards Chaitra's transplant.
