Estimated Funds needed: 1000 euros


Maham, 5 year old girl fell off the stairs and endured brain injuries. Due to skull rupture, the Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaked causing infection. She is now fitting and due for surgery. If left untreated, there is a risk to the brain to drop inside the skull due to the body’s inability to replenish the CSF fluid at a quick enough pace. In short, the girl is in critical and life threatening condition.

Unable to be treated in her home town, she was taken to a hospital in Peshawar. Her father is a medical sales representative earning approx Rs. 35000/- per month. However, the daily expense of the hospital and treatment is in thousands of rupees. The family has already taken loans to cover the expense so far and unable to continue further. The estimate for the surgery is around Rs. 300,000, plus the formidable cost of treatment.

APPEC has verified the case in addition to the medical reports scrutinised by an independent consultant radiologist. The reports are available on request.

Please come forward to save the life of this child.

    I just talked to Samiullah, Father of Maham. The condition of Maham is not good. She is not in complete senses. The doctors said that operation in this condition can not be performed as it may lead to brain death. They have to wait about 1 month. The money that they have collected from other sources for operation had been spent on ongoing treatment.
    For our collection (1349 euros, about 180,000 PKR) he said to keep with us for the moment and he will let us know when to transfer.
    Meanwhile if there is any other donation for this project, we will take it as they need about 3 lac.
