Tajalla – Afghanistan

I’m the fourth child of the family. I go to the sixth grade and I love to study because I want to be a teacher when I grow up. I suffer from Thalassemia and I need to get blood transfusion every 18-20 days. If the blood is fresh I don’t need any treatment for a month, but usually the blood that are available are not fresh and I need to get blood transfusion more often. My family rented our place to get some money to support my treatments. We traveled to India to get treated but the trip got costly and we returned without any success.

My dad used to work with lifting heavy weights but he has serous injuries on his knees. The doctors have told him that he’ll eventually lose the ability to walk, as we can’t afford his medication. He rents a taxi and shares the money he earns daily with the car owner. Almost all his income goes to my treatment costs. His only dream is that I get healthy again. I really hope you want to help us so I can get better and continue to study as hard.
