Mother's love is infinite and endless, that's the picture Khansa's sacrifice to her child. Khansa suffers from biliary atresia, a rare bile duct disease that attacks babies only. In biliary atresia, the canal swells and becomes blocked. As a result, bile increases in the liver and causes liver damage. This makes it difficult for the liver to remove toxins in the body. Khansa's body has seen yellow from birth, her urin and feces are also dark yellow.
After a biopsy, it is known that Khansa has biliary cirrhosis. Biliary cirrhosis is a condition when the bile duct in the liver is inflamed and blocked. Because bile plays an important role in food digestion, filtering out bad red blood cells, cholesterol and poisons, if the bile duct is damaged, harmful substances will accumulate in the liver which causes cirrhosis. The doctor diagnosed Khansa with Laennec biliary cirrhosis where there are hardening and enlargement of her liver which caused by malnutrition. Khansa, who is not even one year old yet, experience malnutrition with marasmus type. Marasmus is a condition where a child experiences a deficiency (lack of) energy and protein. Marasmus type of malnutrition is a condition where there is insufficient feeding or poor hygiene.
Therefore, Khansa needs a liver donor so her health will improve. The mother will be the donor. However, before donating her heart, several laboratory tests (donor screening) are needed, which are quite expensive. Khansa's father earns a minimum wage; while the cost of supporting checks needed can reach tens of millions of rupiah. Furthermore, Khansa must consume certain milk to improve her nutritional status. The price of milk is also beyond the limits of Khansa's parents ability which is Rp. 300,000 / can.
Let's help Khansa to heal!
