My name is Shorya Kukreja and I am in the 8th grade at the Podar International School at Powai, Mumbai. My hobbies include swimming, tennis, football, Galing.
Me and my classmates got to know about crowdfunding and how we can use that to impact and save the lives of children who came from the economically weaker classes of society by getting paediatric heart surgeries done for them at a world class hospital for just INR 25000.
It definitely sounded like something I would want to do.
While all of us complain about how things around us need to improve, very few of us actually get to do something about it. It's all talk and no action. If you told me that we could actually save the life of someone, I would have been amused. But here I am now doing exactly that and all I request you to do is fund a small amount and lets together make a difference. The fact that a heart surgery can be done at such a low cost is another reason why I decided to do this campaign. I have undertaken this campaign because I don’t think children belong in hospitals. Doing this ensures that one more child gets a chance to go out and play rather than suffer at home. This also impacts their family as trying to do these surgeries sometimes means their life savings are not spent.
Further, I believe that health care is a basic necessity that should be available to everyone irrespective of their financial condition. Please also do spread the word on social media so that all those who believe in making this world a better place can chip in & impact the life of a child.
