Embarka needs you

Sallam Guys , i came cross this case on the net , and i think we can help a little bit, this is the story

Assalamu alaikum (peace be upon you) and thank you for visiting this Justgiving page

We have had a phenomenal response to our fundraising appeal for
Embaraka (the young lady in the photo in the cream coloured hijab) during this past month. Embaraka is a schoolteacher from Libya who is in the UK for treatment for blood cancer (chronic myeloid leukemia) because she can't get this treatment in her home country.

She was previously successfully treated for this condition in 1999 and has lived cancer free in Libya for many years. Unfortunately she suffered a relapse earlier this year and had to return to London for more treatment, where she has been struggling to survive, virtually on her own for many months. Her cancer is in a stage called 'blast crisis' which means that she won't live very long unless she has urgent medical treatment. The treatment offers her a chance to live.

Unfortunately, her family in Libya have run out of money and she is not entitled to free treatment or care on the NHS. So, Iman Mahmood (the lady in blue) and I appealing to you to help us raise the 150, 000 pounds she needs to cover the cost of the drug, Glivec, which is used to treat this type of cancer and to pay for a stem cell transplant and after care.

A recent, large donation made to the Hammersmith Hospital anonymously, has enabled Embaraka to undergo chemotherapy treatment and a stem cell transplant. However, we still need to raise another 70, 000 pounds (GBP) to pay for the cost of at least 6 weeks of post surgery aftecare in the Hospital and at least 6 months for monitoring her response to the transplant.

We are really fortunate that the UK registered charity Muslim Global Relief (MGR) agreed to set up a special emergency appeal for Embaraka to help raise funds for her treatment.

You can make a donation in either of 4 ways:

1) Make a donation on this Justgiving page by clicking on 'Donate Now'; donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure and you have the added benefit of seeing how much progress is being made to reach our fundraising target. Muslim Global Relief will receive your money quickly and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

2) Going to the MGR website ( and donating online by clicking on the Embaraka emergency appeal and following the links.

3) Making a cheque or postal order payable to 'MGR' and posting to MGR, PO Box 2018, Nelson, United Kingdom, BB9 7WB (please write 'Embaraka fund' on the back of the cheque);

4) Making a bank transfer to:

MGR, HSBC Bank plc: Sort code: 40-15-17 Account Number: 81582526 (for international donors only, the SWIFT code is MIDLGB22). Again please use the reference 'Embaraka' for your bank transfer.

In all cases MGR will send you a receipt for your donation. If you have any problems with any of the above ways of payment, please contact MGR through their website, or alternatively email:

So please, please- if you haven't yet made a donation-donate now and help save a life!
