I am a doctor, an ENT surgeon, specialised in Rhinoplasty. An avid photographer and fitness freak, I strongly believe we can make a difference in society in every small way we can.
I work in different hospitals in Bangalore and come across many children from underprivileged backgrounds with chronic diseases who require medication on a long term basis.. Some of them need surgery which could improve their quality of life dramatically.
There on, I found Shishu Care Foundation, which works to aid these children to be able to receive healthcare without having to worry about the medicines and funding. The doctors who help treat these poor kids work voluntarily and they negotiate with the suppliers to also provide medication at much lower rates. Since the start of the foundation, nearly 30 children have been receiving constant support. There’s no greater happiness than seeing these children get back to normal lives, head back to school and fight their battles without having to think twice.
I am running to help raise funds for two children in Shishu Care Foundation with severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea, from Rural Karnataka who require CPAP machines to help them breathe. Support me in my part to create a Silver Lining in their lives.
