Girl seeks assistance

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, January 14, 2014

YOUNG Sushmita Prasad's childhood dream of becoming a beauty therapist has been trampled on after she was found to have a heart disease that could ruin her future.

The Form Five student of Lautoka's St Thomas High School needs $50,000 for her heart treatment in India.

According to her mother Pranita Prasad the family does not have the money to send Sushmita overseas and they are now pleading with the people of Fiji to help their daughter.

"I am worried about my daughter's health and I desperately need assistance," Mrs Prasad said.

"My daughter is supposed to be in Form Six this year but we are depending on this treatment so she can continue her education. She wants to become a beauty therapist in the future and her aim is to own a home. She said Sushmita, who is her only daughter, had been coughing a lot more and experiencing fevers.

Any donation can be deposited into BSP account 9760949 and the family can be contacted on 9433699.
