Ekam USA's goal is to raise funds to support these children fighting for their life. They are critically ill and are in ICU. They need emergency medical support.Their parents are daily wage workers who earn about 300 rupees a day (about $5) and cannot afford a $200 medication or $2000 hospital ICU stay every day.
These children may not see the new year without your support. So please donate generously.Faras is a 4 month old
baby diagnosed with VSD
(ventricular septal defect in his heart), complicated by RSV pneumonia and ARDS with Congestive heart failure.
