Although she is a special child, her parents' love for her remains undiminished. Her affection for her mom and dad is expressed through kisses. However, diagnosed with a heart defect since childhood, she needs surgery to repair the hole in her heart. Without it, she not only experiences shortness of breath and wheezing but has already been admitted to the hospital four times.
The child's condition deeply concerns her parents, and the doctor has informed them that surgery is urgently needed. The cost of the operation, RM85,000, has left the parents in a tight spot, prompting them to seek help tirelessly.
【Recently, the child has been experiencing symptoms such as shortness of breath and wheezing during minor episodes of illness. She has been admitted to the hospital four times, and the doctor has strongly advised that surgery is needed as soon as possible】
The 6-year-old girl, Nur Amanda Safiya Binti Badrul Hisham, from Perak, was deemed healthy during prenatal check-ups. However, after birth, doctors discovered that she has Down syndrome. The doctors, aware that children with Down syndrome often have heart defects, referred her to a central hospital for examination. The tests confirmed a severe congenital heart disease, and she underwent heart repair surgery at the age of 6 months.
The child has been undergoing regular check-ups, peacefully passing six years. She leads a relatively normal life, following instructions, but her development is slower. Due to lowered immunity, she frequently suffers from illnesses such as fever, flu, and cough, making her prone to infections.
Unfortunately, the child has recently begun experiencing symptoms of wheezing. During a routine check-up in early November this year, tests revealed that she has Infundibular Pulmonary Stenosis, requiring the repair of the narrow outflow tract and ligation of the unclosed arterial duct (PDA ligation). Without timely surgery, her life is at risk.
The father, Badrul Hisham bin Baharom (39 years old), is a police officer earning a salary of RM3,081. He also works part-time slaughtering and selling chickens, earning an additional income of about RM700. The mother, Farini Shuhada bt Osman (41 years old), is a housewife, and the couple has three other children aged 13, 11, and 9.
After careful consideration, One Hope Charity has decided to raise the necessary funds for the girl's medical expenses. The parents have entrusted the fundraising activities to the One Hope Charity, which will also collect the funds. One Hope Charity has allocated RM5,000 from the "Emergency Medical Fund" for this case. For any inquiries, you can contact the hotline at 04-539 9212, 016-4192 192, 019-2322 192, or 018-911 4192.
