Given the medical complications & the urgency to save my baby's life, I admitted him at a private hospital. My husband was the only bread winner with a meager income. Nevertheless, we borrowed money from neighbors' & financiers and exhausted all our resources completely. My baby was operated successfully and recovered too. But from being poor, we have now become poorer. Most part of the meager income we make, goes towards the debts and now we are not able to afford good education & further health care for our child....” </li></ul><ul><li>Jyothi – a poor Indian mother, Kancheepuram, Tamilnadu . </li></ul> [email_address]
