The boy is currently undergoing medical treatment at the National University Hospital, Singapore. But he needs a liver transplant to recover completely

For this, a donor with blood group O+ who can donate some healthy liver tissue is to be found. The donor also will have to be taken to Singapore where the operation is going to be carried out.

To meet all these expenses, the family needs to generate around Dh500,000. The boy’s uncle, Jasim Afghani, who lives in the UAE, can be contacted on 050-6267306 for medical details and doctors’s recommendations. Those willing to help, can donate money to account # 01-657130101, Standard Chartered Bank, Karachi.
