Spreading the Word Around

I first saw it on Alka's blog. Vijay is a very sick child in need of help. I am pasting her post below.

I had posted about a couple, writing to the Indian President seeking mercy killing for their son, Vijay Kumar. Their son has been diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia.

Doctors at CMC Vellore and Tata Motors Hospital, where Vijay is admitted, have prescribed a bone marrow transplant - the cost of which is around Rs 12 lakh, way beyond Ashok’s means.

I am pleasantly surprised that so many of you have expressed concern and want to help this child.

Shivam Vij, Mridula, Satya and Rahul Shukla helped me finding necessary information.And with their help I tracked down NDTV’s Kolkata correspondent Monideepa Banerjie’s mail, who had broken this story. She replied to my mail pretty soon. And with her help, I found out the necessary information:

Vijay’s father Ashok Kumar’s cell no. - 9334629441
If you want, you can send the cheque or draft at any of the three given addresses.
His Bank: State Bank of India
Account No: 10590922630

Bank Address:
State Bank Of India
Telco Campus
Jamshedpur, Jharkhand
His Address
Mr. Ashok Kumar
Jemco Bus Stand
Mahanand Nagar
Telco Works
Jamshedpur, Jharkhand
You can contribute here too.

Donations to help Vijay can be made by way of a cheque or DD drawn in favour of the “District Collector, Jamshedpur”.

The cheque or DD, with a covering letter specifying that the donation is for Vijay, should be posted to the following address:

Dr N M Kulkarni,
District Collector,
East Singhbhum District,
Deputy Commissioner’s office,
Bishtupur, near Blood Bank,
Jamshedpur 831001

But remember, its not just money. You can spread the word by giving a little space at your blog for this boy.
