Hi, I am anika kohli a student of Class 9th of DPS, Bangalore North. I enjoy sketching designs and would like to become a arichitect specifically interior designing.i also love helping underprivileged children and also love contributing for campaigns such as this. 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 Muscular Dystrophy. Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a group of muscle diseases that results in increasing weakening and breakdown of skeletal muscles over time. The disorders differ in which muscles are primarily affected, the degree of weakness, how fast they worsen.Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. It mostly occurs in boys when they are infants,in rare cases it could affect girls.
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.
