ഇന്നലെയാണ് കാനഡയിലെ എഡ്‌മണ്ടനിലെ നമ്മുടെ സഹോദരൻ ഉവൈസ് ദൈവ വിളിക്ക് ഉത്തരം നൽകിയത്.
ബോട്ടിങ്ങിനിടെയായാണ് അപകടത്തിൽ പെട്ടത്.

ധാരാളം കാനഡയിലെ മലയാളികളെ പോലെ വിദ്യാർഥിയായി 6 വര്‍ഷം മുമ്പ് കാനഡയിൽ വന്നതായിരുന്നു ഉവൈസ്.
ധാരാളം പരീക്ഷണത്തിനിടയിലെ പുഞ്ചിരിക്കുന്ന മുഖമാണ് കൂട്ടുകാർക്കും, സഹായം ചോദിച്ചു വേരുന്നവർക്കും ഉവൈസ്.
എഡ്മൺറ്റോൺ മലയാളി കമ്മ്യൂണിറ്റി പ്രവർത്തനങ്ങളിലും മറ്റും സജീവമായിരുന്നു സഹോദരൻ ഉവൈസ്. വേർപാടിന്റെ വേദനയിൽ നിന്ന് പടച്ചതമ്പുരാൻ കുടുമ്ബത്തിനും കൂട്ടുകാർക്കും സമാധാനം നൽകിയും ഉവൈസറിനു സ്വർഗീയ ജീവിതവും നൽകി അനുഗ്രഹകട്ടെ.

ഉവൈസ് കൂട്ടാതെ പോയ മകൻ അഹ്‌മീദിനും, കുടുംബത്തിനും വേണ്ടി നമ്മൾക് പ്രാര്ഥനയോട് ഈ ഒരു നന്മയിൽ കൈകോർക്കാം.
താഴെ കൊടുത്ത GOFUND link ഉപയോഗിച്ച് നിങ്ങളുടെ സ്നേഹം ധാനം നൽകി പങ്കാളിയാവുക.

Kerala COVID Relief

السَلَامُ عَلَيكُم وَ رَحْمَةُ الله وَ بَرَكَاتُه

NANMMA is joining hands with AKMG Humanitarian Services for raising funds to fight COVID crisis that is threatening the largest democracy in the world – India. As the second wave of the pandemic rages in India let us come together to help the people prevent a catastrophe. We are inviting all local and national organizations to be part of this initiative, please reach out to Fazil Abdu at (514) 917 7976.

AKMG has assessed the situation and identified that supplying adequate high-quality protective equipment and pulse oximeter will ensure the safety of health care professionals and the public thereby preventing continued transmission of the virus. COVID cases are expected over 50,000 per day in the next 2 weeks in Kerala and hence, the current effort is focusing on Kerala. Qatar Airways has agreed to ship these to Kerala free of charge.

In this desperate situation, any donation will help make an impact. Please donate generously as much as you can. This is a humanitarian crisis probably the largest one we will witness. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause.

You can contribute via one of the following links:

Medical Help for 14 Year Old Boy

Assalamu alaikum,

NANMMA has been contacted by a member for her cousin’s 14-year-old son to support an extremely urgent bone marrow transplant to save his life.

He is under the treatment at Christian Medical College, Vellore, India.

Khaiz Mohammed is an ambitious 14-year-old in Kerala, India – diagnosed with severe aplastic anemia. This is a type of blood disorder that is life-threatening. He is the oldest in his family and has two siblings (an 11-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl).

The medical team is planning to proceed with the bone marrow transplant since it is critical to saving his life. The donor is his 11-year-old brother.

Since we verified that this request is genuine and the family can not afford the expenses, we request you all to contribute generously to make it easy for the family. The estimated cost of the transplant is  (USD35,000). The cost may be higher in the presence of unforeseen complications and extended hospital stay.

Please Interac via: sadaqahcanada@nanmmaonline.org

May God almighty bless you and your family, aameen.
