Sujith is seven years old and is sponsored through our STAR Sponsor Site in India.
Chalice Critical Needs - Request for Sujith's SurgeryHe lives with his parents and has one sibling.

Sujith was born with a knee-flex deformity in his right leg. Surgery was performed on his leg at the age of three, resulting in partial straightening of the leg. He has continued to visit an orthopedic specialist who is now recommending that the child undergo another surgery to fully straighten the leg. This will prevent problems with the left leg which to this point in time remains normal. He will be required to wear special footwear on the right leg.

Sujith's mother is at home with the children and his father is a daily-wage earner working in a barber shop. They have limited financial resources and rely on sponsorship funds to provide an education for Sujith. His father has come to the Chalice sponsor site requesting assistance to pay for the cost of surgery and associated expenses.

Our Sponsor Site Director has come to Chalice for assistance in the amount of $834 to help the family pay for these extra costs.
