Campaign Story

Muhammad Umar Wafiy is a 5 months old boy in Malaysia who was recently diagnosed with a condition called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) by the Pediatric Specialists in Pusat Perubatan Universiti Malaya (PPUM).
 
HUS is a rare but serious disease that affects the kidneys and blood clotting functions of those infected. Infection with HUS causes the destruction of red blood cells, which can then cause kidney failure. The disease occurs more commonly in children under 5 years of age than in other age groups. Symptoms of HUS include vomiting, bloody diarrhoea (loose stool/poop), stomach pain, fever, chills, and headache. As the infection progresses, Umar may experience fatigue, weakness, fainting, bruising, and paleness. Complications may occur leading to high blood pressure, seizures, blood-clotting problems, kidney disease, stroke, or even coma.
 
Muhammad Umar Wafiy was admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) in PPUM to undergo treatment for his condition. He is the only second ever person reported to be diagnosed with this condition, the last one being in 2018.
 
For the treatment for HUS, medical experts are recommending Plasma Apheresis and an injection of Enculizumab (a medication). The specialists have recommended the injection for Umar. It is a monthly injection that will cost the family RM 14,800 per month for every injection. This is to make sure the blood is in good condition.
 
Unfortunately, the cost of the injection is an extremely heavy burden upon Umar’s family. Because of the immense rarity of the condition, the injection is not listed in the medication list under Farmasi Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia. Umar’s family will have to pay and book the injection in advance in order for it to be delivered according to schedule. This monthly procedure is a necessity for Umar to have a chance to recover from this condition and to have a chance to live a normal life again, free of this rare blood disease.
 
Donations to this campaign will help cover the cost for the medical expenses and the monthly injection that Umar needs.
 
Let’s start with just MYR 25 and help provide relief to Umar and his family from this heavy medical burden.  
 
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve him of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement. [Tirmidhi]
