This is Karthik here, I’m an international student studying computer-programming at lambton college Toronto. My mom had donated her kidney to my dad even before I came to Canada. As an 18 year old I completed my 12th and I had no control over finances in India so I choose to come to Canada so that I can support my parents medical and house hold expenses. I gave my 100% and struggled all my way out and support my family till now. I was happy that things are going smooth as I expected, but life has other plans for me.
I suddenly received a call from my mom and understood that my dad is admitted in hospital in Bangalore for a Nerve Implant surgery and is in critical condition. After analysis the hospital came to a conclusion that he has a go under a major surgery as soon as possible. The total treatment cost 4 lakh Indian rupees and the only thing which is stopping the surgery is money.
Till now I tried my best to fulfill all the medical expenses with my hard earned money and now is the ultimate test for me to save my dad life. Right now I’m not even in a condition to book my air ticket and visit my parents because of money.
Right now, I have very limited time to raise the funds and send it to India so that the hospital proceeds with surgery. If I don’t save my dad now the purpose of me coming to Canada and working day in day out will be wasted.
I hope you understand the struggle of an International student and help me save my parents; every dollar you donate will get me closer to save my dad life.
Please help a fellow international student.
Thanks in advance.
