The father of the girl is a small vender. He had to maintain a family of five. The girl in the meantime graduated herself and gives tuition to the tiny students to earn to help her father. Her elder sister also is trying to support their family.
It is not possible for her family to spend money for the treatment of the girl.
I appeal to the kind, generous people of the world to come forward and help the girl.
The girl is fighting against the deadly disease since 2011.
Her school where I was Headmaster helped her by collecting donation for the treatment.
Now I have retired and she passed out of the school.
So it has become a herculean task to collect money for her treatment.
I am fervently appealing to you to help generously for the girl’s treatment.
It will also help the girl to fight against the deadly disease and will bring her back to the worldofus.
