Baby Ammar Needs Your Support !

2-year-old Ammar Danish has suffered from Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) since birth. He has a hole in his heart which results in oxygenated blood and non-oxygenated blood mixing together, which in turn puts a lot of strain on his heart and lung arteries. In some cases, the hole eventually seals itself up after some time, but during a routine checkup on 11 January 2010, it was clear that that wasn’t the case with Baby Ammar and doctors pronounced surgery as being necessary to prevent the situation from growing worse.

The deposit for the surgery to close the PDA will cost RM12,000 and is a tremendous burden for Azmaniza, a full-time working mom with five children to feed. The misfortune of Baby Ammar was brought to Nuffnang's attention by some concerned Nuffnangers. Nuffnang immediately felt compelled to do something to help a member of their community.

There are a few ways you can help Baby Ammar get the surgery that he needs ; Nuffnang is sure everyone would be able to contribute through one of the ways as mentioned below :
  1. Enable ‘Show Charity Ads’ in your Blog Manager preferences for the duration of this fundraiser. You will not be paid for displaying the ads, but the ads will greatly help to promote this cause to more people who might be willing to do something for Baby Ammar.
  2. Blog about Baby Ammar’s condition, and include a link to Nuffnang's blog post so that readers will know where to go for more information. Again, this will also do a great service to Baby Ammar by spreading the word about his condition.
  3. Make a donation to Azmaniza Mohamad Kamal – 514093114912 (Maybank). Every little bit helps, so please do contribute any amount you can.
Baby Ammar’s surgery is scheduled for 22 February 2010, and the fund-raising effort will end on midnight at 17 February 2010. It is indeed a short period of time, but let us all rise to the occasion and prove to everyone the strength of a blogging community like ours. Nuffnang will update in their post from time to time on the amount of donations raised.
