A couple from Agra, who is unable to provide medical facilities to their daughter, has knocked the doors of Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking financial help.

The parents of a five-year-old girl, Bebo, have written to PM Modi, requesting him for help their daughter, who is suffering from Thalassemia—a blood disorder disease in which body makes an abnormal form of haemoglobin.

While expressing concern over their difficulty in bearing expenses, father of the ailing girl said, “We are confident that PM would help our daughter.”

Thalassemia is a more common disease in African, Asian and Middle-Eastern countries. As per the reports, thousands of children in India are born with this blood disorder disease. The chances of getting this disease are higher if either of the parents suffer from it.

This is not the first incident when someone has approached the Prime Minister for financial assistance due to their poor economical background. Earlier, Vaishali Yadav, a six-year-old girl from Pune who was suffering from a heart disease had written a letter to PM Modi.

Within a week’s time, Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) got in touch with Vaishali and she underwent surgery in a city based hospital free of cost. The girl is now fine and healthy.

In another incident, two boys from Kanpur wrote a letter to PM seeking financial support for their father who was suffering from Asthma and this time too, PMO reacted on time and medical assistance was provided.
