We had only heard that Salman Khan helps people. We needed help to collect funds for our child’s treatment; he needs a liver transplant which will cost us around 12 lakh rupees. Since we didn’t have sufficient funds we asked the doctor to give us some more time, so now the surgery is on July 18, 2017, it was earlier supposed to happen on May 31st.

Being Human was the first charitable organization we approached and I was expecting to get a sum of 1 lakh rupees, but we got 2 lakhs instead. We also got around 5 lakh from Tata Charitable Trust, and around 3 lakh from Chief Minister’s trust. We still have to reach the 12 lakh target, but we are close. I am thankful to everybody who helped.
