A year ago I went I spent two months in India. I got to know some amazing kids at several orphanages, but spent most of the time with the thirty or so at Hope of Glory in Pune, India. These kids became family. One of them, Nikil, comes from a family of three boys all who are exceptionally intelligent and creative.
The brothers spent their early year before coming to the Hope of Glory home picking through garbage trying to find things to sell. And things to eat. Recently, Nikil’s genius has been realized, as he aced his school exam with an 100, and was found to be the 4th ranking student in the entire city of Pune, a city of 3.5 million people!
Two days ago, Nikhil was brought to the hospital. Here is a story from Hope of Glory’s blog:
Two days ago, after school Nikhil came home with his nose bleeding. We’ve immediately thought it was by sun stroke and we just helped him with first aid.
But that night while Nikhil was sleeping blood was coming out of his nose and month and it wasn’t stopping at all. We immediately took him to the hospital and now after seeing a doctor and had tests done, they’ve found out that Nikhil white blood cell is very low.
The normal count for white blood cell is of 4,500 – 10,000, but Nikhil’s (wbc) is only of 1,000.
He is in very serious condition in the hospital. Needing 8 bags of blood to be put in to his little body immediately. Each bag cost Rs. 800 (20U$) . He then needs plus medical expenses of the hospital he is in.
The doctors are still testing him to get to know what the main problem is. They’ve done the blood test and tonight they will do the bone marrow test as well.
I posted on facebook this morning, and already have raised $620 towards his medical bills! Amazing! If you would like to give, simply click on the donate button below- It will go to my paypal. Once the money is collected, I am either going to transfer it their bank account, or if that doesn’t go through (India can be tricky) I am going to send them a check through the mail.
Thank you for being a part of this. I know Nikhil matters to God and he has a great future ahead of him.
