Sunny Leone has started a crowdfunding campaign in aid of a member of her team, who is fighting a kidney ailment. Sunny posted a message on Instagram on Wednesday, in which, she asked for help for Prabhakar, who she said, ‘takes care’ of her whole team while she is shooting.

Prabhakar is also ‘Mamaji’ to Sunny’s three children, Nisha, Asher and Noah. “He is the sole bread winner which makes it very difficult for his family to bear the expenses of his treatment. He has a wife, a mother and his child who depend on him. He has been fighting Kidney failure,” Sunny, who identified herself as Karenjit Weber, wrote alongside a picture of herself, Nisha and Prabhakar.

“One year ago he was hospitalized in a horrible hospital that was not treating his condition properly and told him that he needed to remove his kidneys. They would have killed him for his organs. Daniel (my husband ) and I had no idea until the last minute and removed him from that place immediately and cleared his bills for release. We then admitted him in a proper hospital and he saw a kidney specialist who informed us that only 20% of his kidneys are functioning,” she continued.

Link in bio Hi My name is Karenjit Weber and I am raising funds for my friend, Prabhakar. He is the one who takes care of our whole team while I am shooting. He is also the Mamaji (uncle) of Nisha, Asher and Noah. He is the sole bread winner which makes it very difficult for his family to bear the expenses of his treatment. He has a wife, a mother and his child who depend on him. He has been fighting Kidney failure. One year ago he was hospitalized in a horrible hospital that was not treating his condition properly and told him that he needed to remove his kidneys. They would have killed him for his organs. Daniel (my husband ) and I had no idea until the last minute and removed him from that place immediately and cleared his bills for release. We then admitted him in a proper hospital and he saw a kidney specialist who informed us that only 20% of his kidneys are functioning. With proper eating and medication he has been able to make it through the year. His entire family depends on him for their survival, making it nearly impossible for him to take the rest that he so badly requires for his medical condition. He has recently been hospitalized because he has complete kidney failure and has to be on dialysis. He was even recently pronounced dead on the table and somehow with the hand of God he was resuscitated and brought back to us. He now needs a kidney transplant so he can recover properly to live and work in the field that makes him so happy. The funds raised will be used towards his: Surgery, Doctor's Consultation Charges, Post-operative care, Medicines, Transplant
