Syazwani Mansor Needs Your Help

I saw this in today's newspaper. The sight of this helpless child just broke my heart. I pity the parents who have to see their beloved child suffer like this.

Syazwani Mansor is 3 months old and suffers from a hole-in-the-heart plus other ailments such as clinical Down Syndrome and bowel problems, causing her to wear a special bag that transports her feces directly from her stomach.
Can you imagine the pain this small girl is going through?
Unfortunately for Syazwani, her parents are not well to do and already have 5 children to feed (ages 14 to 3).

Syazwani needs RM26,000 for her heart operation. We all can help Syazwani have a better life. If enough people send just Rm50 each, Syazwani can hopefully live life as a normal child.

RM50. To many of us, that is not a big amount. Maybe something we usually spend in a day or during a weekend shopping spree. RM50 doesn't even buy you good work shoes unless you're buying from Bata. Rm50 is one night of eating outside.

We can do without that, can't we?

I am not affiliated with Syazwani's family in any way. I am writing this as a plea to all humanity to help this poor child. Please, if you wish to help Syazwani, send a cheque to Berita Harian Sdn. Bhd. (write Syazwani Mansor on the back of the cheque) and send it to Jabatan Kewangan/Unit Kebajikan, The New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd (NSTP), Balai Berita, 31, Jalan Riong, 59100 Kuala Lumpur.

Thank you for reading this. And a bigger thank you if you decide to send a cheque.
