Dubai, May 19: Kiran Stephen John D'Silva, a 47-year-old man is undergoing treatment at Mediclinic Hospital in Dubai for intracerebral haemorrhage.
Kiran collapsed in the washroom of his residence on May 12, 2021. Immediately, after the incident, Kiran was rushed to the Mediclinic Hospital and the CT scan of the brain taken in the hospital showed intracerebral haemorrhage. Immediately, the doctors performed brain surgery to remove the blood clot. At present, his right side is paralyzed and he is in a critical condition.
A year ago, Kiran lost his job due to the pandemic. Failure to support his family, led him into severe anxiety. In addition, his medical insurance and work visa was terminated. Though the family tried to work with the insurance agency, there was no luck. As it was the beginning of the Eid holidays, the family was unable to obtain a new medical insurance. Therefore, Kiran's wife is desperately trying to raise funds to offset Kiran’s medical expenses.
Till now, Kiran's surgery expenses were Dhs 80,000 (INR 16 lac) and ICU cost is Dhs 10,000 per day (INR 2 lac). As the latest CT scan showed bleeding in the brain and he is sedated, it will take few days to normalize the bleeding. According to his doctor, he will be in the ICU for approximately 18 days. The total hospital expenses are approximately Dhs 500,000 (INR 1 crore) excluding medication, rehab, and other expenses (extra tests and procedures).
Kiran hails from Pumpwell in Mangaluru. He has a 5-year-old son and wife.
As the family is not able to bear the hospital expenses, they have humbly requested the donors to come forward and help Kiran in his treatment.
