Pune: A seven-year-old girl from Pune, suffering from heart ailment, immediately received assistance from the PMO, after she wrote to the PM about her disease.
The girl who was seeking financial help not only received a prompt response but also the financial help following which she underwent a surgery and is now recovering.
Vaishali Yadav, who hails from a poor family, suffered from a hole in her heart. Her father was unable to afford an expensive heart surgery and had even sold her toys and bicycle to purchase medicines.
The Prime Minister's Office alerted the Pune district administration within a week after receiving the letter, prompting them to help the girl. The district authorities traced the family's location and rushed the girl to city-based Ruby Hall Clinic where she was successfully operated free of charge on June 2.
