How unity saved the life of a 5 month ol …

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
― Helen Keller

When we all stand together not caring about each other’s colour, cast, gender,creed . We can win over any impossible challenge and that has been proven today when people all round the world joined to save the life of a 5 month old girl.

Tira Kamat a 5 month  old daughter of Mihir and Priyanka Kamat had been suffering from spinal muscular atrophy which is a very rare disease in this a person cannot control the movement of their muscles due to a loss of nerve cells in the spinal cord and brain stem. So basically they start losing their muscles and brain cells. The cure for this disease requires an injection which is extremely expensive costing upto ₹22 crores.

Tira comes from a middle class family who were definitely not in a condition to pay for such an expensive treatment so with no other way to go they decided to go for crowdfunding even though they knew that it is impossible to generate such large amount of 💰 money. Just when they were about to lose all the hope, the world responded to the parents appeal  with people from different countries donating money to them. Donations ranged from ₹100 to ₹5 lakhs with over 87000 people around much as they could. Even the government of India gave the parents a relief by reducing the price of injection from ₹22 crores to ₹16 crores. With the help of crowd funding they were able to generate the amount required and pay for the treatment and thus saving the life of their innocent infant.

The parents became very emotional and happy with the overwhelming response they got and thanked everyone who donated to save the life of their daughter . This donation is said to be the biggest ever till date on any platform.

This is a true example that when we stand united we can do wonders.
