A tribal girl in Kalahandi district is struggling to cope with life after a small lump on her body grew into a huge one. She now needs Rs 11 lakh for the surgery. However, her poor family is unable to bear the expense for the treatment.

After completing her Matriculation, Kabita Majhi from Siramaska village under Thuamul developed a small lump on her back. However, it gradually grew into a huge one. Now, Kabita is not able to move properly and is facing problems due to continuous pain.

Kabita's father Shukru Majhi is a daily wage labourer. With much difficulty, her family consulted doctors at Bhawanipatna hospital. However, she was referred to SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack. However, her treatment could not be done there. Later, she was treated at a hospital in Chhattisgarh. As per the doctors, she needs Rs 11 lakh for the operation of the lump.

The poor family, which is struggling even to make ends meet, can’t afford such a huge cost for Kabita's treatment. In a desperate bid to save Kabita’s life, the helpless family members are pleading one and all to extend with their helping hand for her treatment.

“My parents are very poor. They work as labourers to earn a living. It is very hard even to arrange two square meals a day. From where will they arrange Rs 11 lakh for my treatment?  I want to live. I request one and all to help for my treatment,” said Kabita while tears rolled down her cheeks. 

“I want to pursue education like my friends. But I am helpless as I am unable to move. Please help me for my treatment,” she added.

Kabita’s helpless father Shukru also pleaded for help for Kabita’s treatment.

“I am a poor fellow. I just can’t see the pain of my daughter. She is unable to sit, stand, and sleep now because of the huge lump on her back. She is always crying due to the unbearable pain. I am unable to arrange the funds for my daughter's treatment. I request the government and private sectors to extend their helping hands for the treatment of the poor girl,” said Shukru.
