My Story

Asim is a 13 year old boy living in India. He is in the 7th grade and enjoys playing indoor games with his friends. He has severe hemophilia A, which has caused bleeds in his arm and knee in the past year. These bleeds required factor treatment at the local hospital. He is currently enrolled in physiotherapy to help keep his joints and muscles strong. This helps to prevent future bleeds.

Asim lives at home with his mother and younger brother. His brother, Ayaan, has hemophilia as well as muscular dystrophy. This has caused great stress on their mother, who is trying to care for her children despite the obstacles. The family is primarily supported by Asim’s uncle, and the family lives off of about $100 per month. They spend $90 per month on rent and food expenses. Your sponsorship funds would help to pay for Asim’s education and treatment costs.
