Konda and Devaputra Family Support


An Indian family from Hyderabad, India, Sam Konda and Swetha Devaputra live in Christchurch, New Zealand with their two children, ages 7 years and 7 months.  This past week their family from India (father and sister) were visiting them.  And they got in a terrible head-on-head collision and all six people were injured and hospitalized. 

Your financial support would mean so much to the family right now.  They will have a lot of hospital bills.  They're also 2.5 hours away from their home right now and will need lodging and care.  

Please give what you can this holiday season to this family in need.  Even if you cannot give financially, please lift this family up in your prayers.  They really appreciate it.

Sam Konda: Has fractures in left hand and right leg and may need extensive surgery to recover.

Swetha Devaputra: has injured leg, minor harms on the face.

7-year-old child: has head injury with possible brain hemorrhage and dislocation of the right leg.  Further neurological investigation is still under process.

6-month-old child: has survived the accident with no injuries, but he is  traumatized since he is separated from his mom without his normal feedings.

Sheetal Devaputra: has minor injuries but no life-threatning injjuries.

Sukumar Devaputra (father): broken chest rib with minor injuries; he is a heart patient, diabetic and suffering from high blood pressure.

The family has stated that any money not used will be refunded.
