Ashlin Augusty a third year mechanical students met with a road
accident near our college on 13th March 2008 . He survived , but with major injuries on the entire right side of his body and multiple fractures on his hands, legs and ribs. Doctors informed that that he would have to undergo many surgeries costing around 5- 6 lakh rupees, which his father who runs a parcel service would not be able to afford.
On getting a request from our Alma Mater SEWA decided to meet part of the expenses for treatment, keeping our objective of helping the needy from NITC in mind .
On 5th April2008, ReccaSewa EC Members Basheer and Hashim , visited Baby memorial Hospital Calicut, met Ashlin Agasthi and his parents, and handed over a cheque of Rs. 50,000 to Ashlin’s Father. Mr. Mithun of NITC, one of the recipients of our ReccaSewa Educational Aid coordinated the Visit
Attached is the photo graph of Ashlin with his parents . Our visit generated smiles on their lips .. even in this condition
Ashlin was fortunate that he was spared injuries to his head and brain, but he still had to regain sense of touch on his right hand. Despite one open-heart surgery , he was yet to regain blood supply to his limbs though the doctors were optimistic On being discharged from Baby Memorial Hospital he rented a house neat NITC, to stay with his parents , till the next major surgery as well as to take help from his friends in the campus . it’s heartening to note that he was responding well to the treatment that he was being given
Ashlin was kind enough to call up and express his gratitude to RECCA Sewa for the timely financial aid for his treatment ..
