Help! Medical Expenses for Fire Burnt Victims Renuka & Niveda

Nov 13, 2017 - Chennai, India - Renuka(Mother), Indhuja (daughter age 22) and Niveda (daughter) were set on fire deliberately with attempt murder motive by a Stalker, Akash (age 22) who then identified as a suspect in the crime committed. Akash is a college drop out who lives in the same locality of the victims. He persistently harrassed Indhuja to marry him but she avoided him. On the day of the crime, Akash went to her home with a can of gasoline (petrol) and doused her with the fuel and set her ablaze. While her mother and sister were trying to help her to put off the fire, got burnt in the process. Neighbours, who heard the screams of the women rushed to their rescue. However, Indhuja succumbed to burns. Indhuja was dead by the time her body was brought to the ambulance; her mother and sister suffered severe burn injuries with both suffering 3rd degree of fire burns. They were admitted to Apollo hospitals in Chennai. With one daughter dead, wife and another daughter in critical condition, my friend(classmate) Shanmugam is devastated with what has happened.

In this difficult time, my friend needs your help to pay for their medical treatment. Since, both his wife and another daughter being in critical condition the medical expenses are skyrocketing as they need to pay for hospitalization, surgery and skin grafting. My friend is caught in between mourning for his lost daughter and trying to save other lives in the hospital. It is a tough time for him to deal with what has happened and what is ahead of him. He needs tremendous financial support from all of you. Please donate generously to help the victimized family financially.
