Nine month old Ranveet Kaur badly scalded in a hot water accident at her home in Kuala Lumpur has lost a thumb and two fingers.
Doctors had to amputate the baby girl’s right thumb as well as one finger on the right hand and the little finger on the left hand.
Ravneet is now able to respond. But she is still at the intensive care unit of the Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL), where she was warded on Feb 2.
One thing is for sure: she is on the minds of many well wishers. Malaysians and Singaporeans donated close to RM127,000 towards a donation drive by the Sikh Welfare Society Malaysia (SWSM), Santana Riderz Mc and Asia Samachar.

The donation drive has been stopped. The money collected will be used to settle Ravneet’s mounting medical bills, as well as for the future surgeries and medical care that she will require.
“The community has responded tremendously, and we are grateful to everyone who chipped in to help.
“It will be a long recovery process. Baby Ravneet will require long term assistance. We are also in touch with the Indian High Commission to assist her to get the bay registered and possibly send the mum and daughter back,” said a representative of the three outfits involved in the donation drive.
Born to Indian parents, Ravneet does not enjoy the lower fees enjoyed by Malaysians at Malaysian public hospitals.
Members of the Baby Ravneet Donation Drive have visited the mother and the baby on a number of occasions in the last week.
“Doctors say the recovery process is going to be a long process. Hence, funds will be required,” the representative said.
Members who want to extend any assistance to the mother and the baby are encouraged to contact the team members (listed below) to ensure that the baby gets properly coordinated help.
SWSM and Santana Riderz are working jointly to ensure smooth and proper disbursement of the funds collected. Asia Samachar will provide regular updates on Baby Ravneet’s recovery and the fund disbursement.
