Three-year-old Laxikanto Paul is suffering from eye cancer. His father Sunil Kumar Paul serves as a head teacher at Kurma Tea Garden Non-Government Primary School for a meagre monthly wage of Tk 1,200. Along with mother Rina Rani Paul, they live in the tea garden under Kamalganj upazila of Moulvibazar.
Doctors recommended the family to take immediate steps to treat Laxikanto, but it could cost around Tk 14 lakh. "It is not possible for us to bear the expenses alone," said Sunil, himself a stroke patient. To add to their woes, Sunil's mother is a cancer patient.
The family has requested all to come forward to save the boy. Financial contribution can be sent to Account Name: Sunil Kumar Paul, A/C no 44351 at Adampur branch of Pubali Bank.
