Thank you for visiting my ‘helpBinita’ page. I’ve committed to raising funds to help facilitate treatment processes for my cousin, Binita.

Mrs. Binita Parikh, 32 from Ahmadabad, Gujarat – a wife and a mother of a five year old was diagnosed with Lupus (LSE) in 1999. Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue. This results in symptoms such as inflammation, swelling, and damage to joints, skin, kidneys, blood, the heart, and lungs.

Binita has been under house arrest for the last three months as her diagnosis of the life-threatening and incurable Lupus (LSE) has flared to intolerable levels and of a kidney failure rendering her incapable of any daily activity possible. In addition to the prescribed necessary medications, she has been on weekly dialysis for kidney failure. Binita’s medical expenses amount to approximately RSP. 13,500/month while her husband earns a mere RSP. 10,000/month. The burden of these costs are on her husband… and on her. Binita has always made sure her family has had enough for them to survive, whether it is carrying water from a distant well, to keeping the savings account in check. Today, with the little strength she has, she is fighting to make sure she has sufficient to keep alive for her husband but mainly for her daughter.

Today, I urge to you to help her and her family in every way possible to live. The money I raise will be managed by caretakers and disbursed primarily for her kidney transplant, in addition to help provide for her treatment processes. Every contribution made is highly appreciated and your generosity will directly benefit Binita.

Thank you in advance for all the encouragement, prayers, and support!
