A young cricket scorer Md. Mahbubul Haque Shaheen is in need of urgent kidney transplant but financial constraint is preventing him from availing what could be a life-saving treatment.

The 30-year old has been suffering from kidney related complications for a long time with one kidney already damaged and the other infected as well. He underwent treatment at a clinic in Dhaka and later went to India in September last year. There, he was given six month's medication and asked to return by April 16 to have the transplant. But the cost of the transplant, which could be in the region of four/five lakh Taka is beyond Shaheen's means.

Bangladesh Cricket Umpires Association had appealed on his behalf to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) for help in September last year but Shaheen, who started his scorer's career in 1997, has not received anything yet other than verbal assurance. Doctors here have said that Shaheen's condition was critical and any delay would minimise his chances of survival. Even in such delicate health, Shaheen has continued performing the scorer's role in the ongoing Tigers School Cricket competition as this is his only source of income.

Would it b possible to have the operation in Dhaka? The cost could be halved or severely reduced.

i have noticed rabeed's thread also, only to find out that it vanished after some time. i still dont understand why it was deleted. the fund raising idea is an excellent one but the bank account number didnt need to be deleted as it would help those who want to donate privately.

C'mon guys, please allow us some breathing room. Please be patient. We already said details will follow. Instead of giving piece by piece, we think a greater detail will provide a clear picture about the whole thing in it's entiety. Thank you very much.
