Sumit Belvanshi

July, 2017

Sumit is 11 years old. He has been suffering from a chronic cough and cold since he was about 8 months old which has made him very weak. As a result, he spends most of his time watching TV and does not like playing any outdoor games. Sumit goes to a government school in Koriya District in Chhatisgarh.  He has 3 siblings and his parents are very ambitious about their future.

His father, Gambhir owns a few cows and has a bit of land which is why he could not afford the surgery required for Sumit.

In January 2017, at a health camp held at an outreach centre, the doctor recommended an echo test post which Sumit was told to undergo a MVR Heart surgery. The family travelled overnight to Fortis escorts Heart Centre in Raipur and in June 2017 Sumit was treated with support from Fortis Foundation.
