How Team Excelize helped a poor family obtain funds for a heart surgery.
Kapil Jamdhade runs a tea stall just outside the ESIC hospital near the MIDC, “Software Technology Park” for the past 10 years. In spite of an automatic tea dispenser installed in our office, it remained a favorite tea-break place after hours of sitting in front of computers.
Kapil has an 8-year-old son, Kalpesh who was suffering from a congenital heart defect. After consulting many heart specialists, he was asked to visit Narayana Hrudayalaya, at Bangalore. The surgeon agreed to perform the surgery to save the little one’s life but at a cost of three lac rupees!
It so happened that Kapil shared his sad saga with Rahul Mitra HR Manager at Excelize who immediately consulted Pratap Dhopte our M.D. Consequently, an email was sent to all the Excelize team members to step forward and donate generously. Pratap agreed that a matching contribution would be given by the company. It is indeed commendable that Team Excelize collected Rs. 56,750/- and as promised the company matched the amount collected.
Kalpesh was operated in the first week of April 2017 and is doing perfectly fine after his surgery. Team members at Excelize are proud that they were able to help bring this story to a happy ending.
Coming together as one to help a family in need was a privilege and we thank Kapil and his family for giving us an opportunity to help.
