Shivaji, a poor rural Dalit youth from VM Palli grievously injured his spine, which weakened his body below the spine.
Before the incident that crippled Shivaji, he was an active, attentive and dynamic youth striving for change in the children of his community by teaching them song and dance. At a camp conducted for youth, Shivaji would be the first to help prepare food and take care of others.
The campaign is to support him with his medical treatment, as his first surgery was not done correctly and the rods that were inserted are bent inside and needs careful, the proper treatment the second time at the BIRRDS hospital in Tirupathi. The BIRRDS hospital has agreed to wave off his bed and food charges, DRRT (Dwaraknath Reddy Ramanarpanam Trust) is helping with transportation charges for hospital visits for him and his family. Your support will enable him to undergo the surgery and cover his post surgery expenses and become physically abled and earn a livelihood for himself and his family. Also to ensure that his widowed mother does not go into the debt trap of money lenders for helping her son heal. Please do share and donate to help Shivaji walk again.
