This child had been diagnosed with Alagille Syndrome and currently on supportive treatments and she is following up at Colombo North Teaching Hospital. Since the response for the current treatment is poor, the best way to manage her is with a liver transplantation as early as possible. This needs to be done in India as currently we do not have this treatment modality for children in Sri Lanka.
Baby Azeeza’s father is a driver and mother is unemployed. As their monthly income is insufficient for them. They are under great financial stress.
Baby Azeeza needs to go to Gleneagles Global Hospitals, Chennai for management of Liver Ailment.

Project: Baby Azeeza Liver Transplant
With regard to our previous update on the Baby Azeeza project, the surgery was completed few weeks back in India and it was successful.
Unfortunately post-surgery, few complications have arisen and the child is in need of a minor bowel surgery. We are currently coordinating with the medical team to explore the best way forward. As it stands, a further surgery is required immediately.
While we ask to keep baby Azeeza in your prayers, we will keep you posted on any development.
She's recovering after successful secondary surgery. Communication will be limited until they're out of ICU.
The unexpected secondary surgery has been successful. The baby is now discharged from the hospital and has to stay few days for clinic in India.
