Four-year-old Aadvika’s parents became concerned when they noticed a change in her behaviour. Once so energetic, Aadvika became lethargic and no longer wanted to play with the other children.
Her parents were shocked when she was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. In addition to the overwhelming fear they experienced at receiving this diagnosis, they were also left feeling helpless when they discovered how much the treatment would cost to save their daughter’s life.
Once Al Jalila Foundation learned of Aadvika’s circumstances, it quickly launched a special campaign to collect donations through its digital ‘A’awen Giving’ platform. Within a short time, enough money was collected to pay for Aadvika’s treatment in full, thanks to the generosity of the community.
Aadvika’s parents were incredibly grateful for the support they received through Al Jalila Foundation: “It was heartbreaking to see Aadvika suffer. We felt so helpless. Now we feel so supported from our amazing community who are always by our side and have helped us get our precious daughter the treatment she needs. Now, Aadvika is once again our active and social girl who loves to play with her little sister.”
