Healthcare Savings Changed Lives : Dharavi Files

By Dhwani Jerajani +2 more

How many people do we come across in everyday life, despite being burdened by troubles and old age- have a warm, greeting smile on the face, lighting up the eyes? Presenting to you is one such story of Ganesh Amma, who has spent most of her life in the by lanes of Dharavi and how healthcare savings changed lives.Our inspiring grit lady, Ganesh Amma, is 73 years old. A family of 4, Amma, her son and two children have had a tough life to live because of health and financial troubles. The son is the only earning member of the family and he suffers from Chronic Asthma. Ganesh Amma’s life is a story of courage. She is an inspiration for all and we firmly believe that everyone deserves to get the best. Hence, we at PharmEasy thought we could help her out as much as we can.   The monthly earnings of Amma’s son hardly touch INR 10,000 a month. The son suffers from an acute case of Asthma, which acquires a lot of medical expenses every month. Amma’s old age and deteriorating health adds to further medical costs for the family. With two young children, aged 9 and 13, school fees and expenses are a regular worry.The family’s medical expenditure alone runs up to INR 4000-5000 a month, leaving only about INR 5000 a month to run the household and pay for the school fees. The family used to get most of the medicines from the Municipality stores with no discounts. PharmEasy came to the rescue and provided respite for the family by reducing the bill on medicines. The family got a first-time discount of 25% for an order and a recurrent discount of 20% on every purchase. It is said that we are most authentic at our weakest moments. We learn many of life’s most profound lessons through the stories, struggle and triumphs of patients. The story of Ganesh Amma is an example of how small steps can make a huge difference to people and healthcare savings changed lives successfully. PharmEasy will continue to make such efforts to make life easier for those in need.Disclaimer:  The information provided here is for educational/awareness purposes only and is not intended to be a substitute for medical treatment by a healthcare professional and should not be relied upon to diagnose or treat any medical condition.
