BGWA help for a 2.5-year-old open-heart surgery patient from Darjeeling

After reading a notice posted in one of the Internet networking sites seeking help for a 2.5-year-old open-heart surgery patient in Bangalore, members of BGWA visited the little girl at a guest house near Narayana Hrudalaya in Bangalore on 29 August 2010. Little Abisna hailed from a very poor family in Ghoom, Darjeeling. Her father had expired recently and her mother was unemployed. She had two holes in her heart that needed immediate operation. After much trouble the patient and three people (including her mother) landed at Narayana Hrudalaya. The little girl had a successful open heart surgery on 19 August and was allowed to go back home to Darjeeling on 8 September.
BGWA members decided to help little Abisna's family by booking the train tickets (AC class) of the three people with Abisna to travel from Bangalore to NJP on 8 September 2010.

Below is the list of the members who contributed for the fare amount:
