Army effort saves baby girl born with rare medical complications

Jammu, May 11 (H.S.). The Indian Army has always been in the news for some of its daring and courageous actions, but this humanitarian work is equally unique. Neha Bhagat is a talented three-year-old girl, born in the village of Padyarna in Kishtwar district. She was born with rare medical complications and had surgery on the first day of her birth. He was referred to PGI Chandigarh for further treatment. However, the parents could not afford this treatment due to their financial condition. The parents then contacted the nearest Indian Army camp, who then handled the matter.

 

Thereafter the Medical Officer of the unit contacted Dr. Sandeep, PGI Pediatric Surgeon, PGI Chandigarh, who hails from Kishtwar, who took the case forward and fast-tracked the case. Since it was a complicated procedure, this surgery could not be done till he was three years old. So, last year after his third birthday his first initial surgery was done and four months later his last surgery was done at PGI Chandigarh. Medical assistance was provided by the Indian Army during his growing up years. Financial support for the initial surgery was provided by the Mumbai-based India Care NGO. The girl is fine now and is ready to lead a normal life. The unit undertakes to continue to look after the health and education of the child.
