While most give up at the ripe age of 77, Prabha is the recipient of the benefits of crowdfunding and the spreading act of kindness and joy. Prabha suffered from various ailments that put her life on hold as she grew older and weaker.
Even getting herself a glass of water was tough.
Nothing gives Prabha more joy than praying to the Almighty. It keeps her inspired and optimistic. Sadly, she became so weak that praying became a task. She was reduced to lying down on her bed and praying.
Then one day, she cried! She cried her heart out. She said, ‘God, please make me strong enough to walk to your temple and pray. Please!’
Perhaps an angel in the form of a concerned neighbour heard the octogenarian's earnest prayer and answered her with the gift of an online fundraiser on ImpactGuru.
And then the magic happened…
1154 Donors raised enough in 20 days for her to begin her treatment! With the money, Prabha received the best possible medical care. Between May 2019 to July 2019, Prabha underwent multiple surgeries successfully.
With the stones from her gallbladder gone, her knees replaced, cataracts removed and after the much-needed spine surgery, Prabha is all smiles.
She can now get up from her bed on her own, walk down the stairs, hire an auto-rickshaw and visit her favourite temple to pray. Her prayers were answered because of kind donors who decided to uplift this senior citizen’s life.
On behalf of Prabha Sharma, ImpactGuru thanks all the donors and benevolent souls who gave Prabha a life of quality and good health.
