Dad in need of life-saving surgery

My name is Fartun Hassan, I am 23 years old and I live in London, England. I started this campaign for my father Hussein Hassan. Hussein Hassan is a father of six, looking after four of the six children by himself. My father Hussein has recently been diagnosed with a chronic lung disease in which the abdominal aorta is marked with thrombosis. As shown in the image below, the condition has reached a very dangerous stage, where the blood clot has become so thick that the blood vessel is 0.2 cm away from bursting, which will result in death. My father currently lives in Somalia and is in desperate need of an urgent operation.
However, currently, there are no doctors that can perform this surgery in Somalia. The unrest in Somalia is having a detrimental effect on his health as he's consistently having chest pain which stopping him from breathing at all. My father Hussein needs to be taken to Turkey to receive the operation within the next three weeks. Therefore my family and I require this medical funding as soon as possible. Every single penny you donate will be used to pay for his medical bill for his surgery and travel to Turkey. Your donations could save his life, please contribute anything that you are able. Thank you so much. I pray Allah reciprocates your kind acts of charity with Paradise.
