As part of Barakat’s school programs we send a doctor to the school’s in both countries twice a year to give the students check ups and to help treat any medical conditions that would normally keep the student from going to school. At the most recent doctor visit to Mullah Krim Nazar School, it was discovered that a student named Melad has a heart defect that requires surgery for treatment. Luckily for Melad, his case was picked up by another charity in the area that will be covering all of the expenses associated with the surgery itself, but since he is only 7 years old it is necessary to send a family member with Melad when the time comes for his surgery.

Melad, age 7

Melad is from Babay Khoja Village in the Andkhoy District in Afghanistan. Due to his parent’s financial situation they have come to us to help them to raise the necessary $2,000 to be able to send one of them with Melad when the time comes for him to have his surgery. We currently don’t have a date scheduled for Melad’s surgery but he is being sent to either India or Germany for treatment when the time comes. All funds raised during this fundraiser will be sent to Melad and his family. To donate to Melad and his family please either use the donate button below or send a check to 283 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02139
