Fundraising for the treatment of nine-month-old boy Usman Ali, a resident of Shuklagand Municipality-5, is underway. The child is suffering from SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy), one of the rarest diseases in the world.
About Rs 2.3 million has been collected for the child's treatment so far, said Appu Miya, the child's maternal uncle. He said that there is hope for a new life as funds are being collected from all sectors for the treatment of his nephew. It is said that the treatment of the disease is not available in Nepal and he has to be taken abroad for treatment.
Funds have been collected through the activism of the youth of the district and Nepalis inside and outside the country. Fundraising is underway in Dulegauda, Khairenitar, Dumre, Damauli and other places of the district.
