Help This 11 Year-Old Who Is On Dialysis For 20 Hours Every Day

“When you see her, you can’t tell that she’s fighting such a serious disease. Her body is giving up and dialysis isn’t enough to keep her going any longer. She can drink only two glasses of water a day. She’s been so brave so far, but my daughter is now clinging to life.”

Sadia celebrated her 11th birthday in the hospital, fighting a serious infection. This is a regular occurrence for her. Sadia’s life has only revolved around hospitals and medicines for the past one year. Both of her kidneys have completely failed. Several hours of dialysis and her willpower have kept her alive so far, but it’s not enough anymore. Sadia needs an urgent kidney transplant to survive now. It’s her only chance.


It’s been a year-long struggle for Sadia

One year ago, Affan and Neha noticed that Sadia’s face had swollen up. Two days later when her entire body had bloated up, they panicked. Fear-stricken, they took her to the hospital. During one of the tests, Sadia started having seizures. The doctor gave her parents news that would change all their lives forever – both of Sadia’s kidneys had failed and she wouldn't live long without treatment. She was immediately admitted to the ICU and was there for 10 days in a critical condition. Miraculously, she made it through, but her struggle had only just begun.


Sadia with her father

“For almost a year now, Sadia has been on dialysis. It has been the most difficult year for us. Each day is longer than the other, and we can never tell when her condition will suddenly deteriorate. We watch her being so strong and that makes us feel a little better, we also know how fragile her condition.”

Sadia has dialysis for 20 hours every day and can drink only 400 ml of water daily

She’s only 11-years-old and the kidney disease has taken over her life. She has so many restrictions. She can drink only 400 ml (two small glasses) of water in a day. She has to take 24 tablets daily, so we need to plan how much water she can take with each tablet. How can she swallow tablets with just 10 ml of water? But she never complains. She hasn’t missed a single dialysis session or a single medicine in this one year. The life that she knew, going to school, meeting friends, is over. She has 20 hours of dialysis every day. She can’t go out because she risks infections, all she can do is lie on the bed the whole day. She has made it so far, against all odds, only because of her willpower, but now even that’s not enough."

Her father was forced to quit his job to take care of Sadia

Affan hasn’t gone for work in a year now. He used to work in a mobile retail store, but since Sadia’s fatal diagnosis, all his time is spent on taking care of her. She gets dialysis at home. Affan had to be trained on how to give her dialysis with the machine.



I'm with her through every hospital visit, test or dialysis. I have to take care of her throughout the day, and I can’t go to work because of that. She needs dialysis every 4 hours. My wife is also unwell now and has to take care of our younger child. Sadia’s medical bills are Rs 40,000 per month, and without an income, I constantly worry about how I’m going to afford her treatment next month. I’ve borrowed a lot of friends and family. How much can I keep asking them? I also have to take care of keeping my family of four afloat. A kidney transplant can save her life but I have nothing left to pay for it.”

How You Can Help

Sadia has been living on dialysis for almost a year now. Both her kidney have failed and only a transplant can save her. Affan hasn’t been able to go to work in a year now to take care of her and has no means to afford Rs 10 lakhs for her transplant. He desperately needs your help to save his daughter and finally give her a life free from pain.

Your support can save Sadia’s life.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your generous support.
On 26th of March 2018 my daughter started facing problem with high temperature, after monitoring the whole night and whole day of 26th March the temperature didn't drop to normal.

We then took her to hospital, her treatment started. The doctors took blood samples. The reports showed that she had viral fever. The temperature dropped in 2 days but since she is a CKD patient some dialysis issues started.

So previously we use to do 20 hours of dialysis but now she is on dialysis 24 hours.

Now she is feeling better with 2 days in ICU and 2 days in private ward. She was discharged yesterday.

Please do pray for my little angel and keep supporting her.

Thanks and regards
Affan

Dear Supporters,

Yesterday there was a weekly checkup usually every Monday there is a special checkup class for the kidney paediatric patients and for us it a day of tension and nervousness coz of my daughters blood test results always wondering for the good results but every time we get disappointment, the day starts with pricking to my daughter for blood samples and all results are more then what we expect.

And now as is said the dialysis period is 20 hours a painful task she will be laying all the time on the bed she cries a lot coz she cannot play anything out of her bed.

Please do pray for my daughter.

Thank you for your love and support.

The last visit for her routine checkup to hospital made me sad. Her dialysis period is increased from 16 hours to 20 hours.
