Hyderabad (India), August 07 (KMS): In India, a 10-year-old Muslim boy Syed Aziz has started selling bird food for raising funds for the treatment of his sister who has been diagnosed with Brain Cancer in Hyderabad.
The 10-year-old Syed Aziz started doing fundraising for the medicinal expenses of his 12-year-old sister, Sakeena Begum, who was diagnosed with brain cancer two years back. He has stepped forward to help his family by selling seeds. Aziz while continuing his education decided to sell bird food at a local Madarsa in Hyderabad.
While speaking to media men, Aziz said, “I sell bird food from Morning 6 am to 8 am and from 8 am onwards I attend my classes at Madarsa till 5 pm.”
Bilkees Begum, the mother of Syed Aziz and Sakeena Begum, said, “Sakeena was diagnosed with brain cancer 2 years back and since then, the whole family has been going through hardship for her treatment.”
She said, we were scared when the doctors told us about her health condition. We were suggested by the doctors that Sakeena should undergo radiotherapy in order to save her.
Bilkees Begum said, “Looking at the family condition, Syed came forward to help. That is when my son decided to help us out. He said that he will sell the bird food along with me and has set a separate bench for selling bird food on roads.”
She said that the income that they both earn by selling bird food is just enough to look after Sakeena’s medicines and diagnosis expenditure including MRI, X-ray, and blood tests.
The parents of Sakeena Begum along with his brother Syed Aziz requested people to help them in saving her life.
