An appeal for Medical Assistance for Er. Sohrab R. Bharucha, Panthaky of Poonjiaji Parsi Agiyari, Nargol 396 135
Er. Sohrab Bharucha, (40) Panthaky Saheb of Poonjiaji Parsi Agiyari, Opp Tata Wadia High School, At & Post: Nargol 396 135 met with a serious accident during the twilight hours on April 24, 2017 when the two wheeler that he was riding crashed headlong due to darkness and poor visibility into a water buffalo sitting on the road.
Er. Sohrab Bharucha has suffered brain injuries, and has been brought to Mumbai where he has been admitted to the ICU of Saifee Hospital, Charni Road, Mumbai.
Er. Sohrab is presently in a coma; his recovery is expected to be a very long drawn out affair that will necessitate heavy expenditure that the family of this young Mobed can ill afford.
Whilst we along with some others have provided financial support for immediate use by the family, the requirement of funds is going to be substantial as the hospitalisation is going to be for a minimum of at least 2 months, perhaps more, and thereafter recuperation.
Mrs. Dilnavaz S. Bharucha, wife of Er. Sohrab Bharucha has written to us requesting us to assist the family, towards meeting the medical expenses by raising funds through a ‘Public Appeal’ in community media and other avenues.
A young Mobed and his family are currently passing through an acute crisis. It is recommended that community members contribute generously towards supporting Er. Sohrab Bharucha and his family during this very difficult period when they will be saddled, with substantial medical expenses way beyond their modest means.
Individuals and institutions that wish to extend support towards meeting the medical expenses of this young Mobed, may send their donations by way of cheques / drafts made out in the name of – The World Zoroastrian Organisation Trust – to:
The World Zoroastrian Organisation Trust,

Dinshaw K. Tamboly;
I believe our wealthy Parsi Panchayat must step forward and help all the genuine cases.
What good is the money if you don’t use it for a good cause.
I am sure that many good Samaritans will step forward and help and so will I. But what I am wondering is why isn’t the Parsee panchayat taking care of the expenses.it certainly does have that money!collecting money from people is time-consuming and in medical exigencies time is of the essence.
