Long back in 2005-2006, we supported Raju, from Nagarjuna Sagar, for his kidney operation. Raju is the only son of Mr. Vedamani. Raju is obedient, loving, caring and a hard working bright student (was pursuing MBA), got infection of kidneys.  Raju's mother, donated the kidney. The request for help was published in Eenadu in 2005 (11th September). Raju's family consists of parents and two sisters.

TMAD raised around one lakh eighty thousand rupees and helped for surgery. Later also we helped for medicines for some months. They used to call for two years and after that we lost touch. Later in February, 2012 we came to know that Raju has expired. Raju was doing well and even started earning working in a company. He met with an accident, went into coma and doctors mentioned that he has to be on antibiotics and if he takes them, it would affect his kidneys and there are very less chances of survival. Still the father tried his level best, spent around one lakh rupees. Luckily there was no instance of kidneys getting affected and the boy's condition improved. All of a sudden, he got heart attack and died.


Later in March 2017, Vedamani approached us again saying that he got paralysis and even his heart and lungs got affected. He requested support for medical check-up and medicines. We sent volunteers to his place, enquired and found that he is in bad need of help. He is surviving with the amount his wife earns, which is minimal.


Due to paralysis and heart and lung problem, he can't board bus and he has to come in car to any place. We asked him to get the check up in NIMS.
