My name is Likhitha Kopuru and I am studying in grade AS level Commerce at Primus Public School, Bangalore. My hobbies include reading and playing basketball.
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 awareness and funds for children who are suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). I was surprised to learn about DMD and about how it can be fatal for a large percentage of those who suffer from it. The fact that 5 Lakh boys in India suffer from that was a shocker. Building awareness for it and helping those from underprivileged families manage DMD are key elements of this campaign of mine.
The fact that an amount of just INR 20000 can fund the treatment of an underprivileged child suffering from DMD for an entire year thanks to the efforts of the NGO called DART made me realize that I must do something to help. I strongly believe that we can help children suffering from DMD and make a difference in their lives.
Pl do support my campaign and together let's help those who need assistance.
