An 8-Year-Old Girl Writes To PM, And Receives Help From Modi

Published on 21 May, 2015 at 5:32 pm By

Prime Minister Narendra Modi might be criticized for many things, but his latest move deserves praise. When eight-year-old Taiyyaba, who has congenital heart disease, wrote to the PM requesting financial help, she received it instantly, reports NDTV.

Taiyyaba wrote to Modi, explaining her heart condition and requesting financial help – doctors say her treatment could cost between Rs. 15-20 lakh.  She wrote that her father was a daily wage worker at a shoe factory and hardly earned enough for the family of five.

 Though the  family approached several NGOs in the city for help, they could not raise enough money.

The family in Agra was shocked to receive a letter from the Prime Minister’s Office, asking for details. The office has directed the Delhi Government, which in turn asked Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, to ensure that Taiyyaba receives proper treatment regardless of the cost.

Taiyyaba, who wants to become a banker, said:

“I had told my mother that father is always tense and I had seen on television that the Prime Minister helps everybody. Even I am an Indian citizen and have the right to live so this idea struck me, that I should write to the Prime Minister for help.”



 

Her doctor, SK Kalra, said:

“When this girl first came to me four to five years back she was diagnosed with congenital heart disease due to which the valves were defected and the big arteries were not in the right place. She often contracts cold and cough, suffers from anaemia, breathlessness and proper growth was not taking place. Her condition required special treatment which is not available in Agra and is quite expensive.”
