Meera Pardeshi was severely
burned when a kitchen stove exploded. Her injuries were so
severe that although Indian doctors saved her life her scars
were so hideous that she refused to leave her
It was at the request of
the late Mother Teresa that Dr. Jeffrey Meilman and the Hope
For Tomorrow Foundation agreed to help Meera. In 1998 the
foundation brought her to the United States and persuaded
Kenmore Mercy Hospital Anesthesiologist, Dr. Thomas
O'Connor, and Dr. Meilman to donate the services needed to
make Meera feel human again.
Today Meera is confident
and part of the family of children who have been helped by
the Hope For Tomorrow Foundation.
Meera was blessed
by Pope John Paul II 1998.
