Chimpooji needs Help
Remember the first time when you entered the hallowed grounds of Pilani campus and in a Cnot menu you came across a drink named MNB which seemed to be just a funny misprint that happens so often in Indian restaurants? But little did you have an idea of how that term slowly would become ingrained in your countless Pilani memories, a silent spectator of your innumerable rants, a proud partner of many achievement treats, a joyous participant of many birthday celebrations. Remember, the smiling face that was there behind the counter at all those MNB times. That man is our dear Chimpoo ji and today that face is no longer smiling, as he tries to persevere in the face of severe liver damage.
His family faces an uphill battle as they try to manage their finances while reeling under the stress caused by the ill health of a family member. Multiple hospital stays at Jaipur, Mumbai and Gurgaon have taken their toll on the family finances and life. The doctors have concluded after multiple treatment attempts that a liver transplant is the only hope. The treatment process is long and expensive. Liver transplant package itself costs 30 lakhs and post-transplant treatment is expensive too.
We have started a fundraising campaign for Chimpoo. We know time is short and the amount large but still smaller than the BITSian spirit. We will require active fundraising and generous contributions from all of you. Let's pour in some love for Chimpoo. Let’s all contribute to bring back the smile on Chimpoo ji’s face.
