Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza has offered a helping hand to a 14-year-old fan who is in dire need of financial help. Anees, a 14-year-old girl from Hyderabad, was revealed to be suffering from congenital heart disease and her family could not afford the surgery that she required. The family started a fundraiser on Ketto and Sania Mirza volunteered to help on Twitter. Have a look at what happened.
The fundraiser, which is being run on Ketto, is established by Hyderabad resident Qhamar. In the description of the fundraiser, Qhamar speaks about her husband's inability to make ends meet and how the family is haunted by the five lakh rupee fee which is required for her daughter Anees's open-heart surgery. She further goes on to explain how the family feels helpless and is losing sleep over the discomfort their child is going through. She also mentions how the family has sold off their valuables and has taken loans from family and friends in efforts to meet the costs.
