Father Who Toils In The Gulf Has Come Home To Save His 7-year-old Son

Imran gets only 3 weeks a year off from his work in the Gulf. He works as an electrician and uses his leaves for Ramadan to spend time in Mumbai with his family – his wife, Naziya, sons Ayaan (10) and Adnan (7). Adnan eagerly looks forward to that time of the year – the chocolates, toys and most of all having his father around makes him very happy. However, this year, Imran came to India early. Adnan is excited, unaware that his health is deteriorating and his father is here to try and save his life.



“His legs and arms start shivering and he starts bleeding from his nose. Whenever he starts bleeding, he has to be taken to the hospital as soon as possible or he could die. Naziya has been handling everything on her own when I’m working, but I can’t stay away any longer. My child needs me.” – Imran, father

Adnan has a rare blood disease called Wiskott Aldrich syndrome, as a result of which he has an abnormally low platelet count. The disease affects 1-10 in a million. Adnan was diagnosed when he was just 7-months-old, and without a bone marrow transplant, it can turn fatal.

Adnan can’t be left alone even for a minute

Adnan always has someone to accompany him, even to the bathroom. At home, it’s his mother, Naziya, and in school his teachers and aayah (help) have to monitor him, looking for any paleness, red marks on his body that could indicate a dip in his platelet count. Last year, his condition deteriorated so much that he could barely sit up when he came home from school. Adnan hasn’t gone back to school since then. He misses his friends and teachers, but staying at home is the only thing that can keep him away from deadly infections.

“He refuses to tell anybody when he’s in pain because he fears we will take him to the hospital. He’s so scared of the injections, but his disease has advanced.”  - Naziya, mother

They have to beg relatives for money to even buy groceries, the treatment is beyond their means

For the past 7 years, Imran has been spending a bulk of his salary on Adnan’s treatment. After paying his room rent and household items, he is able to send Rs. 25,000 home. However, every time Adnan gets admitted, they end up spending nearly Rs. 25,000 on his tests and medicines alone. Imran and Naziya haven’t been able to save anything over the years, and now even borrow money for groceries from relatives. A bone marrow transplant costing 33 lakhs is beyond their means.



Imran has been toiling away in the gulf to afford Adnan’s treatment so far. However, now Adnan’s condition is serious. He needs a bone marrow transplant at the earliest. Imran needs your help to save his son before it’s too late.
