A family of 4 Ajaybhai - Lataben (parents), Jay & Sneha (son 9year & daughter 4 year) came to Manav Sadhna on a Saturday afternoon last month . They are from a small village in Saurashtra. Both super cute children can't here or speak from birth.
That day, they had to wait till 5pm to go back to hospital for the test results and father thought to show the children Gandhi ashram. They saw our Saturday special kids playing and organically, were attracted to come inside MS! After learning what MS dose, they shared the story with dignity. While we were talking to the parents, brother and sister were in the wings of Jagat sitting with our earn and learn children. Learning how to make card from handmade papers. They were so quick and keen in learning and wanted to stay with our earn and learn children longer.
A very good and caring ENT surgeon Dr Vishwakarma in civil hospital Ahmadabad, assured them that the kids will be able to here and then speak with the latest technology of Cochlear implant surgery. They implant this device under the ear which electronically connects ear and brain. It is a proven method and over 2,50,000 people have got this operation done worldwide with very good results.
Ajaybhai (the father) install number plates for vehicles in Surat city. He hardly earns enough to support the family for food and shelter. Dr Vishwakarma committed to do both surgeries for free. He has done several such surgeries successfully. The problem for the parents was that implants are very costly. Only three companies are manufacturing in the world at this time. The cost of the implant was 4,90000 rupees ($10000) each. So for both children, implant cost was $20000.
As you can imagine, this surgery can change the lives of this beautiful family. We felt like sharing this with some of our MS parivar, knowing that this family walking in to MS was not a co- incident! In less than a week, some of you donated almost $14000 and the family managed to raise $6000.
Both the kids now got implants with successful surgeries and descharged from the hospital. Now, after few days of srugery they have been called by the doctors to check that the whether the machine is functioning well. The taste was successful and currently both the kids are under the specific speech training by the special traineers. We could see the tears of happiness in the eyes of the parents. Very soon both the kids would be able to listen and speek. The power of sharing and caring with the blessings of God, has given a new life to this beautiful family.
