"We were supposed to be celebrating the birth of our first born, instead we were scared that we might never get to hold her again."
5-year-old Alisha Fatima, daughter of Sofia Talat, has been suffering from a severe kidney disorder called Renal Artery Stenosis.
What is Renal Artery Stenosis
Renal artery stenosis is a narrowing of arteries that carry blood to one or both of the kidneys. It can worsen over time and often leads to high blood pressure and kidney damage. It needs to be treated on an urgent basis.
Alisha has been advised by the doctor to urgently undergo a kidney transplant in order to survive. The total cost of the treatment is around 4 lakh Rs.
Her Father Is Struggling To Pay For Increasing Medical Costs
Unfortunately, Alisha's parents does not have the funds to pay for her treatment and need our help to save their daughter. Alisha’s father, Faiz, works as an administrative staff in a small school in Hyderabad. He works hard to support his family. However, the medical costs over the past five years and the towering medical bills are making it hard for the family to get by. Sofia accompanies Alisha to the hospital, while their younger daughter Humaira, 2-years-old, is left with her grandparents. They borrowed from family members earlier, but the sum for the transplant is estimated to be Rs. 4.5 Lakhs, an amount out of their reach.

"We can’t keep asking them for money. They have their own families to run. This isn’t a small amount, and we don’t know how we’re going to pay for it anymore. We’re worried that if the transplant is not done in time, we might be at the risk of losing our daughter again.”
