Hi, I am Karthik a student of Class 12th of DPS, Bangalore North. I enjoy science and would like to become a scientist. Let me tell you more about this campaign of mine. A few days ago, our school had a program where the team from Fueladream.com told us about a crowdfunding program which is going to help raise funds for children who are suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a disorder that degenerates the muscles and shortens life expectancy.Many of these children are wheelchairbound at the age of 12. These children are required to be given steroids to reduce the degenerative effect of the disorder.
One of our classmates Karan who is suffering from DMD has received medication from DART which has helped improve the quality of his life. The fact that a contribution of just Rs 20000 can fund the treatment of a underprivileged child suffering from DMD for an entire year thanks to the efforts of the NGO called DART made me realise that I must do something to help.
I strongly believe that we can help children suffering from DMD and make a difference to their lives.Everybody has a purpose in life and i would like to help the less fortunate achieve their goals.
