My name is KARTHIKEYA YARLAGADDA, I am 15 years old and in Grade 10 at the The Aga Khan Academy.
Children from poor homes/orphanages etc with SARI (Severe Acute Respiratory Illness) are finding it difficult to get treatment during the current COVID-19 situation. Hospitals think they have COVID-19 because of similar symptoms (fever, breathing issues, etc).
The Choice Foundation in partnership with The Little Star Hospital has worked to create a separate wing to help treat these children. The cost to treat them it involves medicines, consumables, COVID-19 testing protocols, and stay of parents (in case they are outstation children). Getting treatment for these children is a matter of life and death.
Let us come together and ensure that these children receive the best of treatment and are able to get treated by the best doctors at the Little Star Hospital.
