We are starting a campaign to raise medical funds for our colleague, Nicholas Murmu.
Nicholas is 52 years old this year and is based in Bangladesh with his wife and two children. In early September 2020, he was admitted to the hospital due to severe chest pain. After a thorough check-up, the doctor found 4 major heart blocks, each ranging from 80% to 99% blockage. As his condition is quite critical, he has been advised by the doctor to go for a bypass surgery by October 2020. He has been released from the hospital for now to gain physical strength and fitness for his surgery.
The estimated total cost of the surgery and treatment is USD 3,300. His health insurance will cover approximately half of that amount but he will need to bear the rest of the cost on his own, which will be quite taxing on him and his family. We hope that through your kindness and generosity, we will be able to help Nicholas raise enough funds to cover the remaining cost of his surgery.
