Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Poornima Nair devoted her working life to the care of her patients. As evidenced by the hundreds of tributes from her patients and friends, she was a caring and compassionate doctor.
Poornima died on 12th May 2020 after a 46 day battle with COVID-19 at University Hospital of North Tees & Hartlepool. One of her wishes that she communicated to her husband Shlokarth, while in the intensive care unit was to do something to show their appreciation for the care being provided by the nurses and doctors.
As a family we have seen how tirelessly and selflessly the staff and doctors in the ITU at University Hospital of North Tees are working. We have seen first hand the exemplary courage and determination to try to save her and all their other patients that they have made better. We saw their shared pain and heartbreak when they were unable to save her life. We will forever be grateful for the excellent care she was given throughout her time in the ITU.
We set this page up so that anyone who wishes to make a tribute in her memory can do so here. As a token of our heartfelt appreciation we wish that all money raised in Poornima's memory will be used for the direct well being of the ITU staff and doctors.

I am so sorry for your loss of such a beautiful lady highly treasured in the Coundon and Bishop Auckland community. I started a GOFUND ME, not realising you had set one up, my apology £200 raised.

Thank you Poornima for being my family GP. I met you over twenty years ago when my sons were born at BAGH. I have a pearl necklace you made which I wore on my wedding day which reminds me of you.
