12 year old Sasha Shust has Aplastic Anaemia. He is one of 8 children in Belarus for whom doctors have asked if we could supply Danazol, a drug they need every day for their therapy. The doctor who looks after these children is always delighted when we are able to bring this drug to the hospital. She needs just ten packs a month to treat all the children and this costs about £140. A monthly gift of £12 plus gift aid, would provide all the medicine needed for one of these children. This is another of the children who relies on Danol every day.
And the little boy on the phone to his mum is waiting for a bone marrow transplant which he can’t have because of some microbes in his system. We were able last week to send out some special high strength antibiotics which we hope will solve the problem and end his mother’s anguished wait for his transplant to take place.
