Aditi Saha - Ventricular Septal Defect

Desperately seeking treatment for their 3 year old child, born with a hole in the heart (a Ventricular Septal Defect or VSD), Aditi Saha’s parents (farmers in a tiny village in North India) pooled their meager resources and travelled to Bangalore.

A daily wage earner, with a monthly income of only Rs.1,800 her father had little other choice.

Fortunately her operation to close Aditi’s VSD was a complete success, and was fully funded by the Dr.Mani Children Heart Foundation. She is back home in her village, playing with friends happily, secure in the knowledge her heart has been fixed.

One more victory for the Foundation in its relentless struggle against a killer condition.
