Baby Ravneet Kaur, the 11 month old baby badly scalded in a hot water accident at her home in Kuala Lumpur, has been discharged from the hospital.
The mother, an Indian citizen who came to Malaysia in search of a job, has decided to take her baby girl back to India for further treatment, after receiving treatment at Hospital Kuala Lumpur since mid-February.
The baby is not in the clear zone as of yet. A check earlier this month showed that her left hand was hardly moving and might need a plastic surgery.
“But she will not go back immediately as the weather back home is hot,” a donation collection team member told Asia Samachar.
Ravneet’s plight was shared by Asia Samachar on 16 February in a donation drive led by the Sikh Welfare Society Malaysia (SWSM) and Santana Riderz Mc. Within 48 hours, the Sanggat had contributed close to RM127,000.
Todate, some RM48,000 has been paid for the hospital bills. The remainder funds will be used for Ravneet’s follow up treatments in Malaysia and/or India.
She has undergone a number of surgeries, with the latest being another round of skin grafting last month.
