Rest in Peace

The Dhaka Project is in great shock and tears all around. Everybody is finding it hard to accept that Fatama is no more with us. It’s a hard time to pass. A little member of The Dhaka Project named Fatama had a major operation few days back as it was mentioned in the earlier blog failed to survive the critical condition after the operation. Mourning and unbearable upset shaded The Dhaka Project’s family. We don’t know how to live with the fact that Fatama won’t be giggling in the class room again. It’s even harder to write about these. We request everybody to pray for her and her family.

She was a smiley child since the day she born. The Dhaka Project was glad to have her in the nursery section. She was very popular among the teachers in the age of one and half years only. Everybody used to play with her and cared her very much. But in the recent days she lost her charm and her smile became blurred as a very sad and unwanted incident happened with her. She cries the whole day and none of her favorite teacher can stop her cry no matter what they do. All of us were very worried with this fact and asked Doctor Zahid for help. It was then we came to know something is terribly wrong. We took her to the Aichi hospital and the hospital authority referred her to NICVD (National Institute of Cardiac Vascular Disease) Hospital of Bangladesh. According to her condition the Cardiac Doctor said that “she is very vulnerable to heart failure”. The reports illustrated that she had Congenital Heart Disease (Severe Valvular PS with marked RV hypertrophy and moderate RV systolic function. Small secundum ASD/PFO flow R-1, Good LV systolic function). She needed emergency operation which will cost approximately BDT. 150,000. We then appealed for help to every well-wishers of The Dhaka Project and the respond was tremendous. Many people came forward to help. We thank them very much who contributed and who intended to contribute. We thank Dr. Kazi Abul Hasan, Pediatric Cardiac Surgeon and the hospital management for trying their best. Nevertheless we want to thank The Dhaka Project team of Dr. Jahid, Health Care In charge, Md. Azad, Project Officer, Arifur Rahman, Project Manager and Minhas Uddin Shimul, Senior Operation Officer who worked round the clock for Fatama.
