Agra: 8-year-old writes to Modi, gets immediate help for her heart problem

The Prime Minister's Office immediately responded to the letter and arranged for her treatment at New Delhi's GB Pant Hospital, where all the expenses incurred in her treatment will be borne by the government.

Agra: An eight-year-old girl from Agra wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking financial help for her treatment as she has a hole in her heart. Taiyyaba wrote to Modi about her heart problem and told him that her family was not financially capable to get her treatment done.

Taiyyaba's father is a cobbler, who runs the family with his meagre salary.

The Prime Minister's Office immediately responded to the letter and arranged for her treatment at New Delhi's GB Pant Hospital, where all the expenses incurred in her treatment will be borne by the government.

Taiyyaba said, "I have a hole in my heart. My father didn't have money for my operation. I saw on television that PM works for everyone. I deserve to live."

The girl's father said, "I sent the letter to Delhi and got a reply in a few days. I am very thankful to pm Modi for helping us."
