This is Maqsud Abidirazak.
Maqsud is currently 7 years old but after a high-fever at 6 months - she has since been diagnosed with a severe form of cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Maqsud has little control over her arms and legs and other parts of her body, such as her mouth and tongue, which causes problems with eating and speaking. Which is why, as you can see the only form of nutrient she can attain is through the milk solution that her mother is feeding her. It’s the only form of thin fluid that her single mother, Zainab can afford as it was previously donated by kind individuals.
Although, technically oral feeding is advised against by the doctor. Because of Maqsud’s lack of ability to control her mouth and tongue – she is highly susceptible to choking; therefore, the doctor has advised that she is to be fed through a feeding tube. But the tube is required to be changed every fortnight – costing at RM120 per change.
Due to Maqsud’s condition – her mother is unable to attain a job to provide for the both of them – as she needs to spend her day and night caring for Maqsud. Her father has passed away when Maqsud was still very young.
Thus, this is our attempt to fundraise RM7,200 that is worth 1-year’s supply of milk-powder, diapers and also the feeding tube to help with Maqsud’s plight.
Therefore, this is a call to all who can help, we would really appreciate it. Please click on the link and donate or share to help us feed Maqsud.
