"WHENEVER WE WANT TO KNOW HOW RICH WE ARE,
NEVER COUNT THE CURRENCY,
JUST DROP A TEAR AND COUNT HOW MANY HANDS REACH OUT TO WIPE IT ,
THAT IS TRUE RICHNESS.
Dear Valued Contributors Across The Globe,
With lots of anguish KMECT reports a medical emergency case of Sh Tej Krishen Pandita Ji who unfortunately got infected with Novel Coronavirus and tested positive for Covid19. His son Diwakar Pandita also tested Covid +ve and so his daughter.
Father is admitted in Metro hospital Faridabad while his son was discharged after six days of treatment after paying the hospital bill of around 1.25 Lacs and sister is under home quarantine..
Initially the hospital has given an estimate of around Rs 8.00 Lacs but in between last week the condition of the patient deteriorated and was put on mechanical ventilation.
Till yesterday bill has reached around Rs 11.00 Lacs copy attached. Irony did not stop here as out of the insurance cover of Rs 5.00 Lacs of patient, TPA approved Rs. 3.13 Lacs only adding to the shortfall that initially we accounted for as a full amount.
Patient is expected to be in hospital for another week to ten days.
Just to give a brief Tej Kishen ji is one of the lakhs of kashmiri pandits displaced from Kashmir and makes his both ends meet for a family of six souls running a small footpath side vending shop in INA, Delhi area. His married son is working in a pvt company having a 2 year old baby.
KMECT registered the case and to provide immediate succor to the family an amount of Rs. 4.00 Lacs was approved and as of today stands paid to the hospital account. Further support depends on the response to our appeals and the fund collection.
KMECT is in constant touch with family and appeal to kindly support us with whatever little you can as every penny matters to to save this precious life. Kindly pray for speedy recovery of Tej ji.
God bless all.
