They’re easy-going, hard-working, and loving parents of Aniya, Aviella and little Azriel. They’re also downright adorable - they make a habit of coordinating their family’s outfits. Little Azriel, or Azzy, was diagnosed with the condition called VACTRAL. She was born with an extra vein from the brain to her heart, tracheo-esophageal fistula type c, one of her kidneys is not functioning, her right arm is missing the radial bone and the ulna is short with a curve. Her thumb is incomplete and her vocal cord and diaphragm was damaged while in surgery. Azzy lived the first 12weeks of her life in Princess Margaret Hospital, and has already had multiple surgeries.
Baby Azriel (whose name means ‘help of God’) brings joy to everyone who meets her, and her parents are so grateful for the medical system in Australia that keeps her going. Thankfully, Azi’s hospital expenses are covered by Medicare; however, not being Australian citizens, Klman and Inez miss out on other benefits many of us take for granted.
They own and operate two business – Tea Wisdom, which supplies quality tea and chai to local cafes and restaurants, and B3 (Best Bagels and Beans), a food stall with a regular spot at the Victoria Park Farmer’s Markets.
Unfortunately, because of the time and energy required to look after Azi and keep up with her medical appointments (they are in at Princess Margaret Hospital about every other day), they are really finding it hard to keep up with the demands of these businesses and make ends meet.
What You Can Do:
Please consider making a donation to help this lovely family cover the everyday costs of living during this immensely difficult time. Those gorgeous smiles are still there, still given freely to anyone they meet, but this has been so hard for them.
I know that Klman and Inez will be so grateful for even the smallest of gifts. They take nothing for granted and feel no sense of entitlement. We just want to help them get by.
