Bring Uncle Sahrom Ahmad Home

Hi everyone

My name is Nadilla. My friend, ‘Amalina and I were supposed to graduate on the same day last 17 December 2018 at Loughborough University.

I still remember asking whether her family was coming. She said, ‘no’. But a few days before the day, I met her again and she told me that her father would attend her graduation all the way from Penang, Malaysia. She was as happy as a sandboy, and I completely understood how she felt.

However, neither she nor her father made it to the ceremony that was held in the Sir David Wallace Building that day.

Many of you have heard the news.

On 12 December 2018, Uncle Sahrom Ahmad had a stroke a few hours after he arrived in London to celebrate his daughter’s achievement. He was transferred into the ICU, Charing Cross Hospital, London and the doctor in charge urged to go for an operation. He underwent a brain bleed surgery to release his brain pressure and to allow the blood to come out from his brain. He remained unconscious ever since. And ‘Amalina did what every daughter would do, she waited for her father to open his eyes at his bedside.

The situation is already hard as it is. Although Uncle Sahrom bought a premium AXA travel insurance with a  RM300,000 cover, it is on a pay and claim policy.  This family would have to fork out for a hefty £70,000 (RM 367,581) bill plus the cost of flying Uncle Sahrom back home with a medical team and accompanying medical equipment first before being able to make any claim.

Therefore, we have set up this campaign on behalf of ‘Amalina and her family in the hope of seeking your help towards funding to assist them with the unaffordable medical bill so that they can bring Uncle Sahrom home. As soon as the insurance claim is received, 100 % of the money will be donated to charity.

An article in Bahasa Malaysia about Uncle Sahrom on MStar here:

We humbly ask for your kind prayers for Uncle Sahrom's speedy recovery. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Your sincere help means a lot to us and we are humbly grateful for your heartfelt compassion and generous support.

May the Almighty bless you and your family onwards and upwards! Ameen.

Note: 'Amalina does not have any UK bank account. Therefore, we have nominated, Dr Khairul Ayuni Binti Mohd Kharuddin (email: K.Mohd-[email redacted].uk) as the beneficiary for this campaign. She is a Malaysian lecturer teaching at the School of Business and Economics where 'Amalina did her Master's degree programme (  She has been assisting 'Amalina and her father. She will help 'Amalina to withdraw the money from GoFundMe to pay the hospital.
