Shiva aspired to change the fate of his family. He used all his savings to start a business of selling electrical goods. Thus the young man embarked on a journey to Bengaluru to buy electrical items for his small business. As he made his way back home to Hyderabad, something went terribly wrong. Shiva landed in the hospital instead. Hit by a truck on the highway, he suffered critical injuries.

The saree weaver's son needed a continued hospital stay worth Rs 21,000 per day. After borrowing Rs 9 lakh from friends and relatives, his family fell short financially. With no other avenue left, they began a fundraiser for Shiva. When they shared Shiva's story on Impact Guru’s online platform, 3K donors shared his story.

With help flowing in, Shiva got the necessary treatment. Shiva has been discharged from the hospital and is now at home. His wounds are gradually healing.  In the arms of his mother's love and family's affection, the day is not far when Shiva will make a full recovery.

ImpactGuru thanks one and all for keeping Shiva's aspirations alive by giving him a new lease of life.
