Rebuild Suad's Precious Life

$46,926 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 1,300 people in 40 months

 BOSTON, MA
On August 13, 2015, a 21 year old Suad was viciously attacked by a man who threw a copious amount of acid on her face. The acid has completely burned and disfigured her face, neck, chest, and shoulders. Suad was taken to medical professionals and eye specialists all over Kenya, but unfortunately no one was capable of treating her significantly burned skin including her precious eyes. As a result, she was transferred to a hospital in New Delhi, India where she is currently fighting for her life.

Suad needs intensive medical care, but unfortunately her family is running out of the small contributions received from their extended family. She was the breadwinner of her family and currently has no other source of income. Suad and her family are in a desperate situation and she will be sent home if her family can no longer afford to pay her medical expenses. Therefore, our immediate goal is to raise $50, 000 USD so that Suad can continue to receive medical treatment.

Suad needs major reconstructive surgical procedures and her family is desperately looking for any specialist in developed countries who is able to help save her sight. We expect that Suad would need much more financial support once her family finds a hospital that is able to take her case. Please show your love and support and help save Suad’s precious sight. Thank you very much for your donations, support, and prayers for Suad!

We set up a blog to keep everyone posted on Suad's case.  http://savesuada.blogspot.com/

We are very pleased to share with you that the US embassy has granted Suad a travel visa to Boston, to get her major reconstructive surgery on her face and eyes.

She will be admitted to the one of the best burn and ophthalmology centers in the world,
MGH, which is affiliated with Harvard Medical School. The medical team will give her every possible advantage to recover and function.

Congratulations to each and every one of you who supported this cause. Collectively, we have been making a difference in Suad's life as she has been getting the acute burn care for her severe wounds in India. Without your generosity and support this wouldn't have been possible, so thank you so much!

Suad needs a longer term medical care due to the nature of her trauma. So please continue to support and encourage everyone in your network to do the same.

Wishing you all a very happy Holiday Season and New Year!

We are very pleased to share that Mass General Hospital has accepted Suad’s case. Suad is currently an outpatient and receives treatment on a daily basis at the hospital in India. The most pressing concern at this time is her eyes and this exciting news really installs confidence in her knowing that she’ll be in the hands of some of the best and well-equipped doctors in America.

As you can see on her most recent photo, Suad still cannot see. She needs extensive reconstruction work in the areas on her face and eyes, and would need much more financial support once she comes to Boston. We are currently working on her visa application process. She keeps a positive attitude despite of all the apprehension. She continues to draw strength from everyone’s generosity and believes that her future is brighter than her current situation. Let us continue to raise awareness for Suad and urge everyone to consider donating. Thank you very much everyone for your continuous support and prayers!

Here is a quick update on Suad's health. She underwent a surgical procedure creating new eyelids since the acid completely disfigured her eyes (acid connected both eyelids into one body tissue as shown in the figure). Her doctor in New Delhi was able to successfully create new eyelids for her using a reconstructive surgical procedure. Now she is in stable condition.

We are aiming to bring her here in Boston at Mass Eye & Ear hospital for quality medical treatments, particularly her sight and later at the Shriner’s hospital for reconstructive surgery. She has a long way to go as there are no quick medical solutions to her condition, but if we all work together, we can at least take the financial burden off her shoulders. With your continuous support, we can raise substantial funds to cover her medical expenses.

Suad cannot see right now, but she is aware of the generosity and compassion of the public. Her spirit is full of hope and she is conveying this message to those who donated and wanted to see her regain her normal life.

"I cannot express in words how ordinary people took on extraordinary step hoping to see me to regain my sight and normal life”

In our collective effort, we can give Suad hope and make her wishes come true. Suad needs your help and please encourage your loved ones to donate. Thank you so much for your continuous support and prayers!
