£20,000.00 Target Goal
Saarah's Fund, in partnership with Embrace Global, is raising funds for 50 incubators in Syria and Türkiye. These low cost incubators will provide life saving care to newborn babies born in the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes in Syria and Türkiye, which destroyed or damaged over 20 hospitals and hundreds of health care facilities, leaving premature infants without access to medical care. Saarah's Fund has already pledged support for 20 incubators but with 1,000 incubators required, I am aiming to raise enough for at least 50. With this in mind, later this year, I will be running the Oxford Half Marathon again. Your contribution will make an impact. Whether you donate a lot or a little, your donation will help save lives. Thank you for your generosity and may God bless you. Donations are Zakat eligible and 100% of your donation will go towards the incubators.
We have set up Saarah’s Fund in memory of Saarah, our beautiful and beloved 4 year old daughter, who passed away completely unexpectedly in her sleep on the 11th of March 2011. She was truly a miracle: born 11 weeks early, weighing 3lb 3oz, she overcame meningitis twice before she finally came home after three months. Then aged one she had pneumonia and a serious secondary infection to which she almost succumbed. Remarkably she bounced back and for the next three years she enjoyed good health. Unfortunately the meningitis left its mark: hearing loss in one ear, nystagmus (wobbly eyes), very low muscle tone and developmental delay. However, through her courage and determination, she was overcoming all these challenges and had blossomed into a fun loving and outgoing little girl. She brought us so much love and joy and was a source of inspiration to all who knew her. Through the generosity of family, friends and complete strangers alike, over the last ten we have raised over £50,000 for various causes. This includes over 20 incubators for hospitals in Syria, Yemen, and Senegal, an outdoor play train at the JR Hospital, play equipment for the Wheatley Nursery, and a contribution towards the new indoor arena at RDA Abingdon, both of which Saarah used to attend. By donating to Saarah’s Fund you can help more children like Saarah achieve their full potential. Thank you for your generosity and God bless you.
