clip_image002Doinla Puala from Tokapadu village under Seshkal P.S of Rayagada Block is a 8 year old tribal boy having a tumor in his belly needs to be immediately operated to save his life as Doctors say.

He is the only son to his parents living in a remote tribal village inside the forest where forest produces are only the earning source for the dwellers.

Doinla’s father Gangana has no financial capability to meet an expensive surgery treatment for Doinla to remove the tumor. Even he is unable to afford to a doctor for a primary check-up.

clip_image004While CHILDLINE Team was engaged in identifying the differently abled children from the villages to facilitate them obtaining disability certificate from the authority to make them eligible to avail benefits from the different Govt. schemes, saw Doinla was crying and rolling over the ground out of pain. They have brought the child to a surgeon for consultation and advised to take him for an immediate surgery.

Now CHILDLINE-Rayagada is appealing each and every individual and begging for Doinla to release him from the pain. He is to be sent to a hospital for surgery either at Berhampur or Cuttack.

Can you please extend your helping hand for Doinla’s treatment?
