5 Year Old Zoya Scratches Till It Bleeds, She Needs Urgent Transplant To Survive

“It has been 4 years since it all started and each day it leaves my daughter weaker than before. She is reduced to bones and her body is full of scars. I beg God every minute to give her the strength to bear it all but she doesn’t have much time left. Her condition is very critical and if this goes on like this I will lose her!” -Shanu, mother

Zoya was 1 year old when she fell sick, she had pneumonia. Although she was better after the treatment, new symptoms started showing up. Her skin had rashes and it soon turned into infections. Ever since then it only became worse.

“When Zoya was born, everyone sighed saying it was my bad luck that I had a daughter again but I felt blessed. It was beyond joy to imagine both my angels to grow up together. But I never thought I would watch my child grow up in pain. Her screams and cry break my heart and it hurts so much” - Zaker, father

She scratches till it bleeds

In December last year, Zoya was diagnosed with Hyper IGE Syndrome, a rare primary immunodeficiency disease caused by bone marrow failure. Due to the disease, the little girl suffered from horrible infections all these years.

“There are times when her head is filled with painful boils and my girl cries all night, unable to sleep, unable to move... Her entire body itches so badly that she scratches herself violently and doesn’t stop even if it bleeds. It’s been a year since the diagnoses and we were told back then itself that she needs a bone marrow transplant to survive but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t arrange the money needed. Now, there is no more time left, she needs the transplant immediately. I have failed as a father!” - Zaker

The cost of surgery is beyond our means, only you can help

Shanu is a housewife and Zaker is an auto driver. The couple did everything they can to keep their daughter alive, they sold every valuable thing they had, borrowed money from whoever they could but now, only a transplant can save Zoya’s life which these poor parents cannot afford.

“The cost of surgery is beyond our means. We have hit rock bottom now and we are unable to afford even the injection that is keeping her alive let alone this surgery. We don’t know how we will save her. You are our only hope, please save her.” - Shanu
