Urgent Fundraising – Nuha Ufairah (Heart Disease)



"For the past year, we have been constantly worried, with our child's condition keeping us in a state of anxiety. We eagerly hope for our child to undergo surgery as soon as possible, ensuring her healthy growth without any worries."

Nuha Ufairah bt Ahmad Najzil Mukhsin, a one-year-old girl from Kuala Kangsar, Perak, was found to have two holes in her heart on the third day after birth, a discovery that left her parents extremely anxious. Although she has been taking medication to alleviate the condition for a year, one of the holes has healed on its own, while the other, located near the heart valve, still remains and may potentially affect the function of the heart valve.

Doctors have advised prompt surgery to avoid further complications. However, the parents are unable to afford the surgical expenses and are urgently seeking help from the public, hoping to raise the remaining RM 68,000 needed.

The girl experiences rapid breathing and becomes breathless if she runs continuously. She also shows signs of breathing difficulty at night

During pregnancy, everything was normal with mother's check-ups until she was eight months pregnant when the amniotic fluid broke. She was rushed to the doctor for induction. On the third day after the baby was born, doctors discovered a heart murmur, suspecting a heart problem. Hence, the baby was referred to the central hospital for detailed examination, which confirmed the presence of two small holes in the heart. Hoping that one of the holes would close on its own with medication.

Nuha Ufairah was confirmed to have Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), with one hole already closed automatically. However, the other hole near the valve has developed mild aortic regurgitation. The child needs surgery as soon as possible to prevent the situation from worsening.

Nuha Ufairah is now over one year old, weighing 6.5kg, and is as active as other children her age. She rarely experiences cyanosis but tends to have rapid breathing, especially during physical activities, leading to breathlessness. At night, she also shows signs of respiratory distress.

Her father, Ahmad Najzil Mukhsin bin Ahmad Ahyat (34 years old), is a private religious teacher earning a monthly salary of 1160 ringgit, while her mother, Safiqah bt Roslan (34 years old), is a religious teacher in the civil service earning 1300 ringgit per month. The couple has five children, aged 11, 9, 7, and 6 years old, respectively.

Due to financial constraints, the father had previously worked as a delivery person and sold food outside their home, including cakes and coconut rice, to local villagers on weekends.

After a home visit assessment, One Hope Charity has decided to raise the necessary funds for Nuha Ufairah. The parents have agreed to entrust the fundraising activities to the One Hope Charity, which will also collect donations.
