When the bloggers went last Monday to the Kids Cancer Party at the NBK hospital  each had a different view on their experience to share. All of them however agreed that the most touching story was the story of the young Abdul Kareem. This brave smiling boy has cancer in his leg that is spreading around. In order to save his life he is faced with two options: Get a knee replacement surgery or have his leg cut off. 
So why can’t he get a knee replacement? Because they say its not available in Kuwait. However, he can have it replaced in Jordan where the operation is available there. What is the problem then? Well Abdul Kareem is not Kuwaiti and the operation will cost him 30,000 KD which his family doesn’t have.
How is this possible? The medical services in Kuwait doesn’t include a knee replacement operation! Why is it available in Jordan and not in Kuwait?
We thought about having a charity run for Abdul Kareem to help gather the 30,000 KD for him. There are two problems though: 1- The money has to come from one place and not from multiple people, god knows why! I think maybe money laundering rules apply here? and 2- Abdul Kareem has no time. His leg amputation operation is scheduled for next week :(
By next week, Abdul Kareem will lose his leg because a knee replacement surgery cannot be performed in Kuwait. By next week, Abdul Kareem whose family doesn’t have 30,000 KD will be able to live but with one leg only. He is just a little boy with a big smile whose already endured chemo until he is stick thin. But he will have to suffer for the rest of his life because an artificial knee cannot be spared to save his leg.
We can’t gather up donations for him, we would have tried. But we can do is spread the word. Maybe there is someone out there who is willing to help out. Companies maybe? Rich people with big hearts and 30,000 KD to spare? You can help Abdul Kareem by spreading his story, tweeting or posting about it until it reaches someone who can help before its too late. Its the least we can do for this brave little boy with a big smile despite his pain and misery.

قبل يومين لمستشفى بنك الكويت الوطني التخصصي للاطفال المرضى بالسرطان
لفت نظرنا عبدالكريم الطفل ذو الابتسامة الرائعه شجاع وقوي ربي يحفظه رغم المرض والتعب
يعاني عبدالكريم من وجود السرطان الخبيث في الركبه ويحتاج عمليه عاجله لإستبدال الركبة وهذا النوع من العمليات لا يتم في الكويت
 ويحتاج الى سرعة نقله للخارج وللاردن تحديداً وبتكلفة ماليه تصل الى 30 الف دينار كويتي تقريباً
عبدالكريم غير كويتي وعائلته غير قادرة على تكلفة سفره وعلاجه وتقرر موعد عمليته لبتر ساقه الاسبوع القادم لمنع انتشار المرض الى باقي اجزاء الجسم
الاسبوع القادم سيكون عبدالكريم بساق واحده اذا لم يجد متبرع ذو قلب رحيم ينقذ ساقه قبل فوات الاوان
 كل ما نستطيع عمله هو نشر قصته فلعل وعسى يتكفل احد الخيرين او احدى الشركات الكبرى بتكاليف عمليه عبدالكريم الجراحيه لإستبدال الركبة وينقذ هذا الملاك الصغير
