Story

All Donations Will Be Transferred To Rehana Qadir , Zahra's Mother.
Zahra was born with Fibula Hemimelia (severe lower limb deformity). She’s missing her right fibula (lower leg bone) and has severe proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD).

All of the doctors in the UK have now came to the conclusion that the only option for little Zahra is to amputate her leg from the ankle (symes amputation)We have been under several doctors care which all advise the same thing.
Due to Zahras condition being so rare, doctors in the UK have no treatment available for her. There are only a handful of children born with this condition in the UK, hence the knowledge and treatment is limited.

We need to get Zahra to America to save her leg, by the best specialist doctor to operate on her hip, leg and ankle so she can lead a normal life with a normal looking and full functioning leg. We will have to travel to Florida for her treatment and we will not be able to afford the travel, the stay, nor the 7 operations that we have been advised she requires.

We live in the UK, London . Our little daughter Zahra was born In October 2013. She is under the care of Great Ormand Street hospital for children.

By God’s grace, in my eyes Zahra was born perfect however the more she grows the more we struggle with day to day tasks and watch Zahra struggle to keep up with other children her age.

Zahra wears a prosthetic extension leg and cannot walk without it anymore as the length difference between her legs has become so great 15cm at the moment which will increase to 30-32 cms approx; if left untreated.

We came to know of an American doctor called Dr Dror Paley who is situated in Florida palm beach USA. He is internationally recognised for his expertise in limb lengthening and reconstruction. He has done 600-700 such surgeries in total and over 20,000 limb lengthening and reconstruction-related procedures. People all over the world go to

      The Ummah is like one body. If one part of the body hurts, the rest does. May the Ummah feel her pain.
