Neha hailing from a small village Bhau (UP) drank acid by mistake when she was just one and half year old. Since then, her life became miserable and painful. Her father a poor daily wager could not afford to get more medical aid ever since once she was operated seven years back. She was operated and her food was allowed to be given by food pipe but she was not allowed to eat with her mouth since all her throat and onwards system was burnt injured and thwarted due to strong acid passing from there.
However, lucky Neha was successfully operated at Ahmedabad’s VS hospital (run by local municipal body).

Dr H B Vora and his team of doctors operated Neha for what is called as “Gastric pull up with Esophageal Reconstruction” the operation was carried out for five long hours. But, today the poor family is all but crying with the tears of happiness.
Let’s wish Neha ALL THE BEST for her future life and learn a lesson to keep away hazardous material from the reach of little children and do not get such items at home at all, if possible.
