One year old Anand's heart is so critical that he has to get admitted very often to the local hospital in hos town for oxygen. Anand is suffering from congenital heart disease and his surgery has been delaying for long as her father is a cannot afford the funds for his son’s surgery besides making all the efforts to make his family happy.

Around 6 months after birth, Anand was diagnosed with a Patent Ductus Arteriosus which is, simply put, an opening between blood vessels that leave the heart. The result is mixing of good and bad blood with less oxygen circulated in his body. This causes breathing issues and has a deadly effect on his lungs and his heart.

His weight is also decreasing. He is more than a year old now, but still cannot walk like other children. He is so weak that he can’t even crawl. His father Ruben, stated that Anand’s elder brother Anmol keeps asking them about the time when his little brother could walk and run and play with him.

Doctors have recommend him an urgent PDA Closure estimated around INR 2,00,000 otherwise his heart is so weak that he might not survive for long.

His father is a watchman who barely earns INR 200 a day. And he has to bear all the expenses of his family in such a menial amount. Ruben also has a responsibility to take care of Anand’s medications and Anmol's education. His wife Sita, is a home maker. It is difficult for them to arrange such a huge amount for Anand’s operation that too in such a small span of time.
