Kerala: People raise ₹18 cr in a week for treatment of 18-month-old boy

Jul 06, 2021 09:15 IST | By Editorji News Desk

In a display of human kindness, ₹18 crore was raised in Kerala through crowdfunding in seven days for an 18-month-old child suffering from a rare genetic disorder called spinal muscular atrophy.

Mohammed, son of P K Rafeeq and Mariyumma, requires a dose of Zolgensma, which is considered as one of the most expensive drug in the world.

The treatment committee on Monday informed the public that over ₹18 crore reached the bank accounts opened for the donations and asked the people not to deposit any more.

The treatment committee, headed by MLA M Vijin, had a week ago appealed to the public to crowdfund for the treatment of Mohammed.

The campaign was taken over by social media resulting in raising the amount within seven days from across the world.
