Ranbir Singh

Congenital Heart Defect
December, 2016

Ranbir was born in Fatehgarh, Amritsar. Since birth he used to fall ill very often and his mother Joya says ` He never ate anything and was always pale. I thought he has cold, but we went to the doctor who told us Ranbir is suffering from a heart condition. We dint have enough money to get his tests done, so we waited for a while to save money.’

After six months Ranbir was hospitalized for 15 days due to his deteriorating health condition. His father is a construction worker and earns Rs. 130 per day which barely helps the family to survive. Very often there is no source of income since he has a seasonal job, this is when the family struggles to eat one meal a day.

His family took him to many Government hospitals and dispensaries but Ranbir was not treated properly. Fortis Foundation and Being Human Foundation decided to support his surgery. Ranbir had a successful surgery on 3rd November 2016 at Fortis Mohali.
