Rohan’s wife and three young children are at home while he is under constant hospital supervision. His wife Manasi Gokhale wrote in a message on Facebook:

“It is my fervent prayer that you’re all taking care of each other and protecting yourselves during these trying times. It is with despair and intense anxiety that I share the trauma that my family is undergoing right now. My beloved husband, Rohan, has been severely stricken with the dreaded Covid 19. He is desperately ill and has been hospitalized for the past week. His condition is dire. I want so much to have him return home to me and our three beautiful young children, all of who are under eight years of age. On behalf of my babies and me, I urgently request the support of the community in helping him make a full recovery. We are looking for a plasma donor with blood group A or AB. The donor cannot be currently actively infected (must have recovered).”

The hospital has been unable to find a plasma match for him up till now. Friends and well-wishers of the family are spreading the word in the Houston area to try and look for a possible match that can save Rohan’s life.

Sewa International, a humanitarian non-profit has been working with the family for the past few days and helping them cope up with the trying times.

In the interest of better coordination and to avoid overwhelming the family, Sewa is consolidating all potential donor information. So, if you are a potential Blood / plasma donor please call our helpline and we will connect you with the right information.

    Dumbass must have traveled to Korea or China and then infected a bunch of others. Indians suck in every which way, poor hygiene, bad personal habits, and always out to screw other folks. Its karma, what goes around comes around and you get yours when you least expect it.

      Hey dipstick, why don’t you quit impersonating people and get a life? I never said the above comment.
