Suriya

Congenital Heart Defect
March, 2018

Suriya is 7 years old. She lives with her 2 siblings and parents in Tehsil Eidgah, district Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir. Her father, Bilal Ahmed, is a farmer earning 3000 rupees per month and her mother is a housewife.

When Suriya was born her family was informed that she had a hole in her heart as she was had chest infection and her heart rate was faster than normal. Her parents approached many hospitals including the Shri Kashmir Medical institute looking for some financial support for her treatment. However, no help was forthcoming and Suriya was kept on medications. During the process of consultations, a well-wisher referred them to Fortis Foundation. Her parents sent all the necessary documents and it was found that Suriya was suffering from heart defect which requires ASD closure.  

Suriya is a playful child but due to weakness and poor growth she has faced several health issues.
