Recently, Karthik had taken his daughter to a clinic for a check-up and that’s when the doctor suggested that she must go through a open-heart surgery but, due to the current circumstances Karthik couldn’t afford her treatment as he was struggling to make ends meet and gather funds.
In an interview with the The New Indian Express, Senthil Kumar said:
Just before the lockdown, in February, the doctors had advised Karthik that his girl child should go for an angiogram, but I heard that he was planning to postpone it since he did not have the money. My wife and I convinced Karthik to go for the angiogram and donated ₹30,000.
How did they manage to arrange ₹5 lakh? Apparently, the two policemen consulted the hospital authorities and collected ₹45,000 from all the personnel in the station.
Then, they managed to receive ₹1.25 lakhs through a government welfare scheme. And, through sponsors they managed to collect another ₹3 lakhs.
Thanks to these policemen, today Kavishka is leading a healthier and a happier life. This heartwarming story re-instills our faith in humanity.
