Baby Khaled gets a new lease of life

Baby Khaled gets a new lease of life

When baby Khaled was born his parents were overjoyed for the wonderful blessing in their life. Unfortunately, shortly after his birth it was discovered that he had a congenital heart defect that was life-threatening. However, thanks to advances in medicine hope was not lost for baby Khaled. The doctors confirmed that he would need two open-heart surgeries before the age of two in order to live a full and healthy life.

His parents were thrilled to know their son had a chance at life but also at a loss as to how they were going to be able to fund the surgeries.

The medical team recommended they apply to Al Jalila Foundation paediatric program, Farah, to help them fund the needed treatment. Much to their relief, their prayers were answered and Khaled was able to get the medical care he needed.

Khaled’s father was overwhelmed with joy: “Words cannot express the gratitude we have for the generous support we have received for our son’s life-saving treatment. Al Jalila Foundation stepped in to help us when we needed it the most and we are so happy to have our beloved son now by our side.”

Both the surgeries were successful and little Khaled is in stable condition and growing into a healthy and happy young boy.
