My dear friend Leyla Bashiir Jeenyo is dying from heart disease and kidney failure! She was diagnosed with kidney failure in March of 2015. Leyla lives in Saudia Arabia and due to her health condition is unable to afford health insurance. This forces her to rely on charities to pay for her treatment. Not only does she endures long hours of dialysis weekly but she faces the grueling reality that the hospital will discharge her as a patient if she is unable to provide the funds upfront. If things weren't hard enough already Leyla was recently diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease. Two of her arteries are blocked and she needs immediate medical intervention (interventional catheter) in order to save her life. She is currently receiving no medical attention with regards to her heart condition due to money constraints. Leyla is extremely ill and her condition is deteriorating quickly. She is constantly vomiting, struggling to walk to the bathroom and is unable to sleep due to shortness of breath. Her elderly mother is her main carer and she currently depends on inconsistent charitable donations made by the members of the Somali community to pay for treatment. Initially she found a doctor in Pakistan who offered to do perform the heart cauterization procedure at a discounted price but her Cardiac consultant in Saudia Arabia has made it clear that Leyla is too weak to travel abroad. This setback has forced her to come up with the $20,000 treatment cost.
update ; Inna lilahi wa inna ilayhi Rajoon. To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. Our sister Leyla passed away she suffered multiple heart attacks and was placed in an induced coma in hopes of taking strain off her heart. Doctors then tried to wake up her and see if she would breath on her own...but she couldn’t. May Allah have mercy on her, forgive her, and grant her the highest of Jannah Ameen .Thank you all for your generous donations! Leyla was so appreciative and was beaming with gratitude when we last spoke to her . We were unfortunately unable to save Leyla's life but we will continue to raise funds to alleviate the pain and suffering this condition has brought to her family and loved one. All the money will go to pay for her burial, medical expenses and debt. If there is anything left it will go to her elderly mother In Shaa Allah! We would like for your permission to use this money for those expenses . I (Khadija Ibrahim) will be responsible for withdrawing the funds and will be depositing the funds into her brother's bank account in Saudia Arabia. I know the vast majority of you would love for the money to go to her expenses but if there is anyone who would like their money refunded please contact us privately and we will gladly do that for you. May Allah guide and bless us all.
