A few days ago, we sent out a call for help on behalf of Nuffnanger Azmaniza bt Mohamad Kamal, who urgently needed to raise funds for her son Ammar Danish’s surgery. As we mentioned in this post,, Baby Ammar suffers from Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) since birth, and he needs surgery to close the hole in his heart.
In the short span of just 3 days since we blogged about it, we’ve managed to raise RM 3,359 from Nuffnangers for Baby Ammar! We’re also happy to announce a bit of good news which Azmaniza relayed to us: Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) has agreed to waive part of the fees for Baby Ammar’s surgery, and Azmaniza has also been carrying out some fund-raising efforts of her own. As such, in addition to the funds that Azmaniza already has, the amount that has been raised so far will be enough to cover the amount needed for Baby Ammar’s surgery.
Azmaniza is very grateful to all of you out there who’ve contributed generously to this cause, be it by spreading the word or by donations. Here’s a short message from Azmaniza herself:
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nuffnang and all Nuffnangers for their contributions, efforts and continuous support to help my lil Ammar. It means a lot to us! Great job Nuffnangers!! Thank you again and May God bless all of you!!!”
Because Azmaniza already has sufficient funds to foot the bill for the surgery, we’re ending this fund-raising effort today (8 February 2010). Once again, thank you for your generous contributions. We’re really proud of all of you for coming together as a community for a good cause!
