After NDTV reported on a 12-year-old who is fighting cancer and spends his nights sleeping outside the hospital where he is being treated, many surfers have asked how they can help.

Details of a bank account created by an NGO with his family's consent are listed below this story.

Chandan and his father spend their days and nights in this cold wave lying on a pavement outside Delhi's AIIMS hospital.

Chandan was diagnosed five months months ago with bone marrow cancer. His father accompanied him from their village in Bihar to Delhi. Treatment at AIIMS is heavily subsidised. But they have nowhere to live.

So now, in between appointments for chemotherapy at the hospital, the family sleeps on the pavement.

Chandan's father, Girish, originally tried to rent a room nearby for Rs. 60 a day. But without any income, that soon became unaffordable.

Across the road from AIIMS, a government shelter has 400 beds for out-of-town and needy patients. But it's full, and the road outside is strewn with shivering, sick people who have nowhere else to go.
