Raised by 57 people in 27 months
Our dear friend Waheed, suffered a brain aneurysm /stroke last Friday night . This was followed by a 6 hour brain surgery the following day at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. He has recovered movement and is now fully aware of his surroundings and recognises everyone. He is unable to talk or write which frustrates him immensely especially for someone like him who loves to chat . Now starts a long recovery process and he will need support through this time .  Waheed"s best chance of recovery will require long term rehabilitation(speech therapy and physiotherapy) His wife Samina is juggling a toddler and daily hospital visits as well as being the only income earner which she  is unable to do at present It is essential for them to focus on their health without the strain of financial stressWaheed has always been such an amazing energy in all the projects we have run , it is time for us as a community to show him we care .Thank you

Dear family and friends,
I have been overwhelmed by your support and the response you have given to our request for help to help Waheed , Samina and Tabrayx.
Samina will endeavour to respond to all of you individually as soon as i can show her how to and she recovers from a bad flu.
Waheed is improving daily and his spirits are up as he is starting to be able to communicate again.
He was transferred on Monday to Fiona Stanley Hospital in the rehabilitation unit which will support him with long term therapy .
His speech is improving daily and it has been so heartwarming to hear him speak his first words. When he gets stuck, he is now managing to write a few words or draw . We have had a few games of Jeopardy!
His loss of sight in one eye is apparently due to a blood clot and this should be resolved through good thinning medication over the next few months.
Waheed is extremely lucky to be in such good care in the best hospital and your support means he is able to focus on his recovery.
He is so overwhelmed by the kindness of everyone around him and is looking forward to a big promised celebration with you all when he is out of hospital..
I personally wish to thank you all . I am so humbled by your support and cherish the thought of such a wonderful community coming together.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Hi all , Samina has sent a message tonight in comments . Waheed is improving every day . He took his first steps two days ago with the support of two nurses and will keep practising. It was like a scene of The king and I , he makes a fantastic Yul Brynner and has the nurses wrapped around his little finger. He is starting speech therapy to help him regaining his speech as soon as possible . It will take time but he is a strong man . All his staples for brain surgery have been removed and it looks really neat. He can wear those scars with pride! He is so grateful for everyone support, visits and kind messages . I am personally so grateful and humbled by the kindness , support and generosity of you all, a community we can all be so proud of. Thank you from the bottom of my heart
