Lisath is nearly five and suffering from a genetic condition called Thalassemia. This condition causes the body to make an abnormal form of hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells.) The disorder results in large numbers of red blood cells being destroyed, leading to anemia. There is no permanent solution to Thalassemia besides a Bone Marrow Transplant.
Lisath is an only child and his young mother is doing everything she can on her own to care for him and cover costs, because Lisath’s father left them due to his health issues. His mother Erandhika is only 31 years old and doing her best to keep her child alive, so that she can give him a fresh start to enable him to live his dream. Erandhika is a teacher at Vijayapala Maha Widyalaya Mathale.
How you can help
Lisath is undergoing donor matching tests but has not yet found a match for his bone marrow transplant. Hence why his doctors and mother are looking at doing the BMT in Bangalore. They need Rs. 3 million for this operation in India. We hope to raise this amount thought charity apple. All proceeds raised will be going towards lisath’s BMT.
