today7 July 2021

Background

13-year-old Nur Wardina Aqila Azrur Hisyam suffers from right development dysplasia (DDH) of the hip and is currently needing RM40,000 for surgery.

 

Wardina is unable to walk normally and spends most of her time sitting because of her condition. The family noticed her right leg was shorter than her left at a young age which was caused by the disease. Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a condition where the “ball and socket” joint of the hip does not properly form in babies and young children. It’s sometimes called congenital dislocation of the hip, or hip dysplasia.

Her father, Azrur Hisyam Ahmad Noor Din said that Wardina grew up feeling depressed most of the time because she was unable to join her friends playing in school. The keropok lekor seller said his daughter felt down most of the time as she was unable to play with her peers. Speaking to NST, Azrur said, β€œAt the school, she spent less time with her friends. We can see she is unhappy and we tried our best to get her some help.” He said that Wardina was often taken to a government hospital in Kuantan at just 10 years old and was later referred to Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL).

 

β€œBut, they too were unable to help her,” he said.

 

To those who are interested in helping Wardina walk normally again can send donations to Media Prima-New Straits Times Press (NSTP) Humanitarian Fund Maybank 5141-0532-3170.
