A mother's plea.......

I am Sumaya Khan, mother of 23 year old Ummaira Khan. Ummaira loves life despite having ROP (Rethinopathy of Prematurity) and is currently studying general and industrial psychology.

Together with some local celebrities and entertainers, we are hosting fundraising events to give Ummaira the gift of sight. Her operation is going to take place in July 2012 and all is being done at the Medical University Centre in Eppindorph Hamburg Germany. THis is only possible through stem cells.

Ummaira is blind in her right eye and has 5% sight in her left eye. By doing this operation it would be possible for her to gain upto 50% of her eyesight back, by using her ver own stem cells and would enable her to have a better and brighter quality of life.

The operation costs, airfares and accommodation costs are in the region of R250,000-00.

I humbly ask of you to hear this mother's plea in giving my daughter this opportunity by assisting us in the form of donations or by attending the fundraising events that we will be hosting.
