  • Our maid servant’s only son is suffering from some leg disease. Most probably he is suffering from septic. Kindly suggest for treatment through Assam Arogya Nidhi as the cost of treatment is on the higher side. It is not possible for his mother to treat her son without any financial help or else her son will have to lose his leg.
