Urgent Fundraising – Muhammad Luth Zareef 2.0 (Heart Disease)



**RM5,000 from the “Emergency Medical Reserve Fund” has been channelled. Hence, One Hope Charity will only launch a fundraising of RM55,000 for this case.**

The boy is active and lively. It is hard for the others to detect any unusual condition of the child, but there is a time bomb hidden in his body. He had congenital heart defects, and his heart grew on the right side. He often becomes cyanotic due to a lack of oxygen. Without surgery, the child will suffer from pulmonary hypertension, which endangers his life. His parents hope that their son can grow up healthily.

Two-year-old boy Muhammad Luth Zareef Bin Mohd Fahmy Izwan from Bukit Mertajam, Penang, is underweight compared to children of the same age. He has a poor appetite, and his body’s oxygen content is about 80%. Now, it is timely for his surgery. His parents hope to receive help for the shortfall of RM60,000 in surgical expenses.

【The boy is very active. However, due to hypoxia, he often becomes cyanotic. He will suffer from shortness of breath and rapid heartbeat when he moves too much. If the cyanosis continues, he will need to be hospitalised urgently】

During the mother’s pregnancy, the fetus had been tested with heart problems or might be a child with Down Syndrome. The examination result made the mother live in fear throughout her pregnancy. The baby was finally born, and fortunately, the baby was not a child with Down Syndrome. However, he had severe congenital heart defects, which include dextrocardia, double outlet right ventricle (DORV), pulmonic stenosis (PS) and univentricular heart–heterotaxy syndrome with right isomerism.

The boy underwent heart repair surgery when he was two months old to save his life. The subsequent surgery is when his weight reaches 8kg. And now, it is timely for him to undergo the bilateral Glenn Shunt. However, the surgery costs RM80,000. His parents frugally saved RM20,000, and there was still a shortfall of RM60,000.

His 38-year-old father, Mohd Fahmy Izwan Bin Azlan, is an engineer with a monthly salary of RM7,000. His 35-year-old mother, Syafawati Binti Mohamad Alam Shah, works part-time as a clinic assistant and receives a monthly allowance of about RM750. The couple also has a four-year-old son.

After reviewing the case, One Hope Charity decided to assist the patient in raising the remaining medical expenses. His parents agreed to fully authorise One Hope Charity to take charge of the fundraising and collect donations from the well-wishers on their behalf.
