Urgent Fundraising – Nur Adni Arfa (Heart Disease)



An eight-month-old baby girl was diagnosed with a hole in her heart just after birth. Even after a successful surgery to repair the hole, her condition was still unstable. She had to rely on a ventilator as she developed pulmonary oedema. Her parents, who are physically and mentally exhausted, appealed to the public for donations of RM50,000 for their daughter’s medical expenses.

Eight-month-old baby girl, Nur Adni Arfa Binti Mohamad Amirul Asraf, from Pahang, turned cyanotic shortly after birth, which scared her 40-year-old mother, Fazniwati Binti Mohammed Anwar. Fortunately, medical staff saved her life after emergency treatment. The doctor diagnosed the baby girl with an atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD), commonly known as a hole in the heart. She stayed in the intensive care unit for nearly a month.

Baby Nur Adni Arfa would turn cyanotic when she cried. The doctor arranged for her to undergo heart catheterisation and heart repair surgery. However, her parents only learned they were short of RM20,000 a day before the surgery and sought help from One Hope Charity. As the surgery was urgent and extremely important to her future growth, One Hope Charity extended a helping hand to help her successfully complete the surgery.

The parents thought the child would grow up healthily after the heart surgery. Unexpectedly, she developed pulmonary oedema, affecting her breathing, so the date of discharge from the hospital seemed far away.

The parents were hoping their daughter would be discharged from the hospital and grow up healthily after the surgery. However, her condition was unstable during the observation period, and an unexpected situation occurred. Fluid collected in her lungs had caused her heartbeat to accelerate. The doctor performed a procedure to remove the fluid from her left lung, temporarily intubated her and put her on a ventilator. The baby girl’s unstable condition has caused invisible pressure to her parents, and the accumulated hospital and treatment charges of RM50,000 made the parents even more helpless.

The baby’s 31-year-old father, Mohamad Amirul Asraf, is a factory operator, and her mother, Fazniwati Binti Mohammed Anwar, is an office general assistant at the Pekan District Council in Pahang. The couple’s combined monthly income is about RM3,700. They have another four-year-old daughter and the family of four lives in a wooden house in Pekan with a monthly rent of RM300.

The couple must pay for car loans, petrol and transportation expenses, utility bills, meals, daily necessities and other miscellaneous expenditures. They must also buy Nur Adni Arfa formula milk powder, diapers, and other items. Their income can only meet their needs, and they have no extra savings for their youngest daughter’s emergency treatment fees.

After reviewing the case following a home visit, One Hope Charity decided to assist Nur Adni Arfa in raising the RM50,000 in medical expenses so that she could receive timely treatment. Her family agreed to fully authorise One Hope Charity to take charge of the fundraising and collect donations from the well-wishers on their behalf.
