2 year old Arohi Dhalvi, was born with hearing loss. The experts at K.E.M. Hospital, where Arohi was being treated, suggested a cochlear implant. Arohi's father, who works as a librarian at BMCC College, Pune, had collected Rs. 4, 25,000 for the surgery but was falling short of Rs. 2, 50,000. He approached Mukul Madhav Foundation to help with this shortfall, so that Arohi could receive the implant at the earliest. The case was verified by our social workers as genuine and the amount was sanctioned from a generous donation that we received from one of our regular donors, Mr. Pradeep Mafatlal. Arohi successfully received the implant on 30th March, 2015. She is recovering well and with regular sessions of speech therapy over the next few months, Arohi will be able to begin communicating.
We thank Mr. Mafatlal for his donation, which has brought a new ray of hope to Arohi's life.
