Urgent Fundraising – Muhammad Rayyan (Heart Disease)



"The child's heart is like a ticking time bomb, and we have been living in worry every day for the past year. Now that we have found a suitable surgery, please help our child seize the golden opportunity for the operation."

Muhammad Rayyan bin Mohamad Harith Asmawi, a boy from Jawi, Seberang Perai Selatan, was diagnosed with severe congenital heart disease at birth. He underwent a temporary surgery at two weeks old to save his life. Now, at one year old, he is suitable for a life-saving surgery.

Whenever the boy cries or engages in physical activity, he turns cyanotic and becomes easily fatigued. During a recent regular check-up, it was found that his oxygen levels are only 60 to 70%. The doctors have informed the family that surgery is urgently needed. His helpless parents are seeking 95,000 ringgit for the surgery to save his life.

【The doctor advised to avoid taking the child to crowded places and to ensure that the environment is not hot to prevent cyanosis】

During the pregnancy, the mother regularly attended prenatal check-ups, and everything appeared normal. However, the baby was born full-term with cyanosis and shortness of breath. Seeing the condition, the doctor urgently sent the baby to the ICU for oxygen support. Initial examinations suspected a heart problem, leading to a referral to a major hospital for a detailed examination and then to the central hospital, where it was finally confirmed that the baby had a heart defect. The diagnosis included pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PA/IVS), hypoplastic right ventricle (Hypoplastic RV), and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA).

Relying on oxygen support, the doctors performed surgery on the baby at two weeks old to repair the narrowed blood vessels, saving the baby's life. The baby was temporarily weaned off the respiratory support and allowed to go home to reunite with the family. The baby's heart condition continued to require regular check-ups and medication, with the side effects of the medication causing sparse hair on the forehead.

Recently, the boy turns cyanotic when crying or overexerting himself. Doctors found that his oxygen levels do not exceed 70%. They advised against visiting crowded places and ensuring a cool environment to prevent cyanosis.

The doctors also suggested that the boy needs surgery to widen the blood vessels. Without timely surgery, the boy will not survive. However, the surgery costs RM95,000, which puts a significant financial strain on the impoverished parents, who are also worried about their child's condition.

The father, Mohammad Harith Asmani bin Abdul Razak (30 years old), was originally a technician but had to quit his job due to frequent hospital visits after the child's birth. He now works as a food delivery driver, earning about RM1,900 per month. The mother, Nor Zaimah bt Ismail (29 years old), is a housewife, and the couple has only this child.

After a home visit assessment, ONE HOPE CHARITY decided to assist in raising the necessary medical funds. The family agreed to entrust the fundraising to ONE HOPE CHARITY, which will also collect the donations. ONE HOPE CHARITY will allocate RM10,000 from the 'Emergency Medical Reserve Fund.'
