Any money donated will be strictly used for the intended purposes.  Whatever's collected will be given to the parents of the sick child to cover medical expenses, operation,  tests or procedures including X-rays, admission charges, medicine, room and food charges and any after care charges. 

Abdi Shakur is a 11 year old boy in Somalia. He suffers from multiple health issues, he most recently suffered a severe meningitis. He needs an urgent brain surgery to release excess fluid in his brain (Hydrocephalus). If untreated very soon, this will be fatal.  Currently, he can’t speak, his limbs are totally immobile and he eats food through a straw (see photos).

The family have been told by several doctors in Somalia that they cannot do anything about his situation.  The only option for Abdi is having a brain surgery abroad.  The child’s parents are trying to raise funds for the operation and would like your help. 

Please let’s give this child and his family hope....donate what you can! Please remember no amount is too small.
