The following are the action plans of Spark.

1, Spark will contribute Rs. 10,000 from it's Funds for Varsha's open hear surgery.
2, Spark member's will visit Varsha in the hospital tomorrow and will pay Rs. 10,000 directly in the hosptial for her surgery.
3, Spark member's will seek the help of other good will hearts to help Varsha's surgery as we helped for Child Bakyalakshmi's heart surgery and made it a success two years back at the same time of year. (2003). We expect we can do our best to help Varsha as we did for Child Bakyalakshmi. Please send us a note if you pay the amount directly at the hosptial to keep track of amount collected.

Note: Since the information reached us at the eleventh hour and the
operation is scheduled in 3 or 4 days and the child is in a critical
stage, it requires a swift action to expedite the proces of mobilizing
funds through direct & indirect sources.

You can directly contact the baby's parents (or) contact the following
persons for your contribution

Babu - 98412 98722
Arun - 98412 91275
Shiva - 98408 68802

Stanis - 9884498418

I have talked to Stanis (b4 posting) & the current satatus is that they collected around 80K. They still require another 75k. The child would be operated today.

Im sure the baby would also require post-operation medicare & your contribution can make a difference.

BUT Please don't contribute blindly. Call up at these no's, talk to them & figure out what are their current requirements. People in chennai can go & meet the parents personally before contributing.
If we can help Varsha, it would be yet another moment to show that we CARE!!!
