Three overweight children have been getting bigger and bigger as they never seem to be full and their parents are crying out for help.
The children, Yogita, six, Anisha, four, and Harsh Nandwana, three are suffering from a mysterious condition where they are unable to stop eating. They cannot tell when they are full and will eat several times in a day.
The children’s father, Rameshbhai, says he is willing to sell his kidney just to be able to pay for the health intervention he is sure his children needs.
Yogita weighs 37kg, Anisha clocks 56kg and Harsh weighs 20kg.
Their father, a labourer who does menial jobs said, ‘If they continue to put on weight like this, they won’t be able to move an inch in coming days.
‘I cannot see them dying in front of my eyes, so I will do whatever deems fit to take them to the right medical treatment.
‘If that requires me to sell my kidney, I won’t hesitate doing so.’
He said: ‘Their belly is an abyss. It is hard to be sure that their well-fed and their hunger is satiated. The kids demand food all the time and if there is any delay they start crying and screaming.
‘The kitchen has become my living room now. At times, I get frustrated but then I console myself it is not the kids’ fault. That they are suffering more than I do.’
He said: ‘I work overtime in fields, dig wells, and do whatever menial job comes my way just to ensure that the kids are not hungry. ”
Their other child, Bhavika is a healthy size.
