Alex George (56), has a family of 4 with wife Jolly and two children, Alphonse (22) and Teresa (24). Alphonse is mentally retarded and highly dependent on her family. Alex was bitten by a poisonous viper on January 1, 2009. As a result, he was hospitalized for 17 days and had to undergo multiple blood transfusions. He was recently diagnosed with Hepatitis C, which the doctors believe is a result of contaminated blood from the transfusions. He has been prescribed a medicine that costs him 17,500 rupees per bottle to be taken for six months. This means 28 bottles are needed for his treatment, and the total ends up being 480,000 rupees.
Alex is very weak, nearly bedridden, extremely underweight, coughs up blood, and suffers greatly due to his disease and his treatment side effects. Alex is in dire need of help to regain his health in order to take care of his family. Any help is greatly appreciated.
