Urgent Fundraising – Siti Nur Imani Aafiyah (Heart Disease)



"We tirelessly go to the hospital every day to feed the baby, talking to her and encouraging her, hoping she can stay strong and overcome this. We eagerly anticipate the day she can recover and leave the hospital in our arms."

Baby Siti Nur Imani Aafiyah Binti Mohamad Sobri from Gurun Kedah was born with severe and complex congenital heart defects, unable to breathe independently and relying on oxygen support. She has been in the intensive care unit since birth, her life hanging by a thread.

The hospital informed the parents that urgent surgery is needed to repair the baby's heart, leaving them anxious and desperate. They turned to the foundation, hoping to raise RM90,000 for the surgery.

【With a bacterial lung infection compounded by congenital heart disease, the patient's life is hanging by a thread, necessitating life-saving surgery within two weeks】

The mother had a normal pregnancy until delivery, and the parents eagerly awaited the birth of their daughter. The baby was born full-term without complications, weighing 2.74 kilograms.

However, the baby's cry at birth was weak, prompting doctors to transfer her to the intensive care unit for examination. Test results revealed a bacterial lung infection, and during this time, the baby exhibited cyanosis, rapid breathing, and other symptoms. Three days after birth, preliminary tests indicated that the baby had a severe and complex congenital heart disease. The doctors referred her to a general hospital for further evaluation, which revealed that the infant had persistent truncus arteriosus with ventricular septal defect (VSD) and atrial septal defect (ASD), commonly known as "hole in the heart" along with the absence of a blood vessel, resulting in the baby's inability to breathe independently.

Doctors informed the parents that the baby must undergo surgery within two weeks to prevent the enlargement of her heart, which would render her inoperable and threaten her life. However, the required surgery costs amounted to RM90,000, causing great distress to the parents. Despite their daily visits to the hospital to care for and encourage their child, the financial burden weighed heavily on them.

The father, Mohamad Sobri Bin Ahmad (29 years old), and the mother, Siti Safila Binti Shukri (28 years old), are both factory workers earning RM1,550 each per month. They also have a 6-year-old son. The exorbitant cost of surgery left the parents struggling financially, prompting them to seek assistance.

After a thorough review, One Hope Charity decided to assist in raising RM90,000. The parents agreed to entrust the fundraising efforts to the One Hope Charity and authorized them to collect donations. One Hope Charity allocated RM10,000 from the "Emergency Medical Reserve Fund" for this case.
