Namrata & her father Sudip.
Namrata's house collapsed over her and her brother during the April 25, 2015 earthquake in Nepal. She was rescued but she her brother was lost.
Her parents were taking Namrata to the Tilganga Eye Hospital (http://tilganga.org/) in Nepal for help- but 2 years ago the doctors told them that she is suffering from both Macular Degeneration
and Optic Atrophy
Namrata is losing her vision and hearing slowly. By the age of 15 or 16 she will be completely blind and deaf. Time is of the essence- she needs to receive specialized treatment as soon as possible.
There is no treatment available for this disease in Nepal. We are seeking specialized treatment wherever we can, and are seeking to cover the travel and treatment expenses.
OUR MISSION: To find & send Namrata to the best doctor in the world for ophthalmology and her unique condition. We will seek the treatment she needs, regardless of the cost. All funding will be contributed to getting Namrata the treatment she needs to save her vision.
[And I began to hear the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send and who will go for us?" And I proceeded to say: "Here I am! Send me." - Isaiah 6:8]
