Urgent Fundraising – Ramzan Rani (Rheumatoid Arthritis)



“I just hope that I can carry my child when he comes to me. However, rheumatoid arthritis has stopped me from doing that. I can’t even do this simple action!”

31-year-old woman Ramzan Rani Binti Jawahar Raja suffers from rheumatoid arthritis. The joints in her hands and feet are swollen. Every day she wakes up with excruciating pain, and the pain she suffers made her unable to carry her own child. The doctor suggested her to inject special medicine to relieve the pain, but the medicine is expensive. She hopes that the public can help her with RM60,099 so that she can get the monthly jab and help her to return to a normal life.

Ramzan Rani from Penang Island suddenly felt joint pain and stiffness in her hands and feet in January 2020, so she went to the hospital for a check. She was later diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, which caused the joints in her hands and feet to swell. Her hands could not bend like the other people. The pain she suffers every morning made her feel unbearable.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease and it has affected her daily life. At the beginning, the doctor prescribed her with daily oral medications to control her condition. However, after taking the two medications, she started to show symptoms such as itching, fever, vomiting and red spots on the body, so the doctor suggested her to change to a new medicine.

Currently, she needs to inject a special medicine every month, and each dose cost over RM3,700. Furthermore, the medicine is not available in government hospitals so she needs to purchase the medicine at her own expense.

Ramzan Rani is reluctant to take painkillers as she is worried about the side effects, so she will do warm compress by putting hot towel on her hands and feet when she is in pain. She added sadly that sometimes when her child came to her when her fingers were stiff and painful, she could not even hug or play with her child. So she hopes to improve her condition by injecting the medicine.

Ramzan Rani was a nurse in a hospital in Negeri Sembilan. After she married, she moved to Penang and became a full-time housewife since then. Her 36-year-old husband Mohamed Zaki Bin Mathboob Ali works in a money exchange company with a monthly income of RM2,000. They have a four-year-old son.

After the home visit, One Hope Charity decided to help Ramzan Rani Binti Jawahar Raja in raising RM60,099 to purchase 16 doses of medicine that she needs.

Family agrees to allow ONE HOPE CHARITY to take charge of the fundraising and at the same time, accumulating the donations from the public. For enquiries, please contact our careline at 016-4192192 or 019-2322192.
