Poor Children Treatment – Case Study
Shaheen (04) had been suffering ever since his birth from cardiac aliments with two holes in his heart. His father Md. Raju is a rural landless farmer. As per physician’s advice, Shaheen had to be operated without delay for a open heart surgery which involved a cost of Tk.2, 50,000 which Shaheen’s father could by no means afford to manage. With Shaheen’s father quite unable to manage such a big amount, he gave up hope of Shaheen. When a National Heart Foundation’s doctor gave him the trace of HPF, his father forwarded a petition thereto whereupon HPF raised fund and gave Shaheen a due treatment. This happened in 2010. Shaheen is now leading a healthy and normal life and attending his school regularly.

HPF project directors Arif and Nazmul were reading the daily Jugantor when a piece of new affected by their eyes to the effect that a 05 years old child Jahid had been caught blood cancer. They two rushed to Jahid’s father who is an employee in a laundry shop. Sensing the poor and helpless condition of Jahid’s family, they started to raise HPF funds. This immensely expensive treatment of cancer was being carried out under supervision of Prof. Dr. Afikul Islam, professor of department of pediatric hematology and oncology, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical university hospital. HPF rushed to the doctor, requested him fervently for a proper treatment of Jahid and pledged to pay any amount needed. During treatment, Jahid had to be subjected to infection several times. But he gradually came round due to untiring labor offered by HPF and the doctor. For this treatment Jahid had to pay Tk.2,50,000 for his treatment for long two years. This happened in 2011-2012. At present Jahid is quite well and studying in a madrasah.
