Roona begum, 18 months old child live in Gurgaon, India is suffering from hydrocephalu, known as “water on the brain” disorder which has swelled her head to an alarming size. She has been suffering from this disorder since she was born. We all know that helping hands are much better than praying lips and is true for the parents of Roona begum, who get financial assistance for treatment. The photo of Roona begum has been taken by AFP photographer and published on Yahoo! India.

After knowing about Roona's condition, Fortis Foundation came at her home and transferred her and her family to its Gurgaon hospital and started medical check-up. MRI scans have discovered infection in the head of Roona, and now doctors are treating her and trying to reduce infection. After the infection reduces, doctor can operate on Roona. Roona comes from very poor family as her father is laborer, who earns only 150 everyday by working at a brick factory in Tripura, Northeast India. According to the Heydemann, Roona might have hydranencephaly, in this condition brain hemispheres are missing and the unfilled space is filled by cerebrospinal fluid. Heydemann has never handled and seen this type of case, but told that the prominent veins on her scalp are a "common piece of this puzzle."
Generally, Hydrocephalus or water on the brain needs instant treatment to prevent brain damage. Hydrocephalus is treatable disease, but it is seen in very few people. At present, Roona can’t sit or stand due to the heavy weight of head. She is suffering a lot from this disease. It’s really very critical condition and I pray the lord to never give this type of disorder to anyone.
