Organization Profile
RARE International is a vocal advocate for children and young adults affected by RARE and life threatening illnesses. It was founded by Melissa Dharmadasa, Kevin’s Godmother, to help him and other’s facing equally unknown and uncommon diseases. 

Project Background
Since the tender age of 14, Kevin has endured a troubled life due to this illness. He has already been to India for two separate rounds of treatment without success and now his family is financially exhausted. At just 22 years of age, his condition is critical and the only real chance of life is via a bone marrow transplant.

How you can help
The total cost of the treatment is Rs. 15 million, which includes:  

Patient  pre-transplant work-up 
Donor assessment and stem cell harvest
Sibling allogeneic HSCT

Charity Apple humbly requests a donation towards this cost, to provide Kevin with the funds to undergo a portion of his treatment.

RARE foundation and Kevin will be tremendously grateful for providing support for Kevin to have a fair shot at life. The amount to be raised is Rs. 50,000.

Transparency:
100% of your donations will go towards treatment for Kevin’s bone marrow transplant.
We are committed to complete transparency and accountability.
