Need your Love and Support for Healing Sanya

Sanya is an 8 year old girl who lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is suffering from a medical condition which is causing shortness of breath, and fainting spells. Her skin appears pale because of this. The doctors at the government hospitals have not been able to determine exactly what is causing her symptoms, although they believe she is not producing enough red blood cells.
Her mother took her to a private GP (On my advice, after I sent her the money to pay for the extra expense). This GP has advised that Sanya needs to have some basic blood tests done, and to have a further consultation with both a haematologist and a Pulmonologist, who may advise further testing and hopefully eventually some treatment. The blood tests and specialist appointments will cost 22780pkr (Approx $225 AUD)
Sanya's mother, Uzma, is 31 and is the sole parent for Sanya and her 3 siblings. another of her children, Waris who is 6, also struggles with Pulmonary issues which affect his breathing. Uzma's husband was a violent man and beat her brutally many times. He eventually divorced Uzma and remarried another young woman in his village and kicked Uzma and her 4 children out of their house and left them to live on the street. 
Uzma moved to Lahore to stay with her brother, but her brother's wife treated her very badly, and she was forced to leave. Now Uzma and her family have moved to a rented house (supported by me) which cost's 9000pkr ($90 AUD) per month. She started work as a maid in someones house, and was paid $60 AUD per month, but a young man there harassed her and then tried to rape her, so she was forced to leave that job. Now she has been left with no job and no way to support her family, as she is fearful of working as a maid again. As she has no education, there are not many jobs she is able to do. 
Poverty, poor government systems and corruption in Pakistan keep Uzma and her family trapped below the poverty line, with no way to lift themselves up without some outside help. Unable to feed, educate or provide medical treatment for her children means Uzma is unable to try to improve life for her children. 
If we can raise just $1000 AUD this will help them through this time of crisis and provide some stability for a while. It will cover medical expenses, rent and food for some time and hopefully they will be able to look to provide an education to Uzma's children, so they can slowly lift their family out of this difficult position
Thank you
