About Appeal

Eight year old Ahmed Muhammad Zainuddin suffers from Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and needs our help. Zainuddin is the charming son of a Nigerian couple Dr A Idris Adewale and Dr Maryam A Mikail, PhD scholars of IIUM Kuantan, Malaysia, 2016. Dr Idris was previously the Imam of the IIUM Kuantan mosque, and is now teaching at Lincoln College in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.

Being foreigners, it is not easy for Zainuddin to get prioritised treatment in government hospitals. The cost of treatment at private hospital is estimated at RM 350,000 to 410,000 (approximately USD 100,000). To date, March 2017, we have received more than RM 40,000 from caring citizens, mostly from Malaysia. Together, we can help Zainuddin. May small steps lead us to greater heights.

This campaign was created with the support of a group of Malaysian citizens to raise funds for little Zainuddin to treat his illness.

About Sickle Cell Disease

Sickle Cell Disease is a blood disorder that is a long term illness with little chance of a cure. A number of health problems may develop, such as attacks of pain ("sickle-cell crisis"), anemia, swelling in the hands and feet, bacterial infections, and stroke. Long term pain may develop as people get older. The average life expectancy in the developed world is 40 to 60 years.

The care of people with sickle-cell disease may include infection prevention with vaccination and antibiotics, high fluid intake, folic acid supplementation, and pain medication. Other measures may include blood transfusion, and the medication hydroxycarbamide (hydroxyurea). A small proportion of people can be cured by a transplant of bone marrow cells.
