Urgent Fundraising – Nor Amisyatulisa (Heart Disease)



"When we found out about our child's heart defect, we were devastated. Every follow-up report filled us with anxiety, and the recent ones show signs of deterioration. Surgery is needed urgently. We are truly helpless and plead with everyone to help save our child!"

Nor Amisyatulisa bt Azhar, a 6-year-old girl from Taiping, Perak, was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect when she was just one month old. Over the years, medication has been used to manage her condition. However, the hole in her heart has not closed on its own and has shown signs of worsening. Doctors have recommended immediate surgery, but the staggering RM80,000 surgery cost is beyond her parents' means.

【Excessive exercise causes her to experience shortness of breath and an increased heart rate. She needs to slow down and rest for a while to return to normal】

During the early stages of her pregnancy, Nor Amisyatulisa's mother was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. From the third month of pregnancy, she started insulin injections until the baby was born. Although the delivery went smoothly, the baby did not cry upon birth and was rushed to the intensive care unit. Tests revealed that the baby had breathing difficulties, initially suspected to be heart-related.

The baby was then referred to the general hospital for a detailed examination, which confirmed a complex ventricular septal defect (VSD) with a 3mm hole in the heart. Initially, doctors hoped the hole would close on its own with medication, and the child underwent regular follow-ups.

During a routine check-up in May of this year, doctors found that the hole had not closed and that the condition had worsened. They discovered mild to moderate tricuspid valve abnormalities and regurgitation. The doctors recommended urgent surgery to prevent further risk to the child's life and referred them to a specialist hospital for the procedure.

Nor Amisyatulisa's father, Azhar bin Abdul Majid (52), works full-time as a RELA with an unstable income, recently earning RM1700 per month. Her mother, Zaiton bt Baharom (43), is a housewife. The couple has four children aged between 6 and 20 years. Their eldest daughter, 20, works as a cashier with a salary of RM1300. The other three children, aged 12, 10, and 6, are still in school. The family's income is barely enough to cover daily expenses, leaving them unable to afford the RM80,000 surgery costs.

After a home visit and evaluation, One Hope Charity decided to assist the family in raising the necessary medical funds. The family agreed to entrust the fundraising campaign to One Hope Charity, which will also collect the donations.

One Hope Charity will allocate RM5000 from the "Emergency Medical Reserve Fund" for this case. For any inquiries, please contact our hotline at 04-539 9212, 016-4192 192, 019-2322 192, or 018-911 4192.
