Pakistani actor and television host, Fahad Mustafa has donated Rs.20 lakh for the treatment of a Hindu boy. The child is fighting his battle with thalassemia.
At a recent episode of Shan-e-Ramazan, JDC Foundation’s Zafar Abbas came along with a Hindu doctor whose minor son was suffering from thalassemia – a blood disorder in which the body makes an abnormal form or inadequate amount of hemoglobin.
The boy needs urgent care because according to the doctors, he has only 15 months left. The total treatment costs Rs 40 lakh (4 million) but it is extremely hard for them to arrange the huge amount.
But Fahad Mustafa came as the savior. The actor pledged to donate Rs.20 lakh and also requested others to donate for the kid to meet the required amount.
When Iqrar-ul-Hasan asked about the inspiration behind his decision, the actor said:
“I don’t know, I don’t usually feel that way. But when I saw him, I had to call. May Allah give him long life and Allah will definitely give long life to this kid.”
