Appeal: A 24-year-old Srinagar girl needs blessings, help


A resident of Surtaing Rainawari, Rumi Ji, 24, is suffering from chronic liver disease and doctors have advised her to undergo a liver transplant.

“Rumi was suffering from liver disease since she was 12 years old but after a treatment of over 12 years, the doctors have said that her condition has deteriorated and she needs a liver transplant,” said Irfan Ahmad, the youngest of her four siblings.

The treatment costs Rs 15 to 20 lacs and the family is not in a condition to bear the costs.

The family has appealed the general public to help the family for the treatment.

Pertinently, liver transplant surgeries are not done anywhere in Kashmir. So Rumi has to be operated in mainland India.

While talking to Kashmir Life on phone, Irfan said that their father is ‘willing to beg’ but he just wishes to save Rumi. “He is jobless from last 25 years now. He was working in Gaziabad in a pharmaceutical factory but then Babri Masjid issue escalated and preferred home. Since then he is suffering from Asthma,” said Irfan who is working as a laborer with a mason. His eldest brother is a carpenter but he and another brother, are suffering from severe psychiatric ailments. Irfan and one of his sister’s (working at a glass factory) are working presently to run the family.

Rumi has been diagnosed as a case of CTP Class C with MELD score=27, portal hypertension, Ascites and recurrent SBP. The patient is registered at government medical college, Srinagar under MRD no. Gas/Hep/17/84/MC dated 11.2.2017.
