Mr Sharif came to NZ on a Islamic missionary trip with his wife and 4 others on the 28th June 2018. They intended to stay from July until August 2018.

Unfortunately Mr Sharif fall sick shortly after his arrival into NZ. He was admitted at the Middlemore Hospital ED on the 4th July 2018 and currently being treated as a stroke patient.

A lot of tests has been done and it appears that Mr Sharif case is severely complicated by his respiratory condition.

Mr Sharif has no family in NZ, he is a non NZ resident. Currently his wife Mrs Sofiah is staying with him at the hospital. Mr Sharif’s family is currently in discussion with the hospital staff about his ongoing care as well as with the travel insurance to see if they will provide cover for him. As you can imagine this process is rather tedious and takes time and involves several people and paperworks, meantime the family is still in limbo and awaiting respond from the insurance company whilst the bills is increasing everyday.

Mr Sharif’s family intend to bring him home to Malaysia to continue the ongoing treatment as soon as the stroke medical professionals at the Middlemore hospital are able to discharge him. Mr Sharif will likely needing special assistance to transport him home too.

Can we all please make a contribution no matter how small to help ease the burden to the family to pay the hospitalisation bills and to take Mr Sharif home as soon as he is able to. I am sure any contributions will count and will be greatly appreciated by the family.

Thank you very much for your generosity

Mr Sharif is my friend’s father who came to NZ on missionary and fall ill not long after. He is currently at Middlemore hospital receiving treatment.

We do not know if his insurance will cover his fees at this stage the hospital bills are mounting and they have no family or means to pay for these as they are non NZ resident.

On top of the bills they also have daily expenses for Mr Sharif’s wife to go and back to the hospital, food, clothing all the general expenses.

The family plan to bring Mr Sharif home to Malaysia as soon as he is able to this needs a lot of money as it will require special equipment and assistant.

Update: 17/7/18 As the insurance will now provide cover for a limited medical expenses whilst Mr Sharif is receiving care in NZ, the support will cease as soon as Mr Sharif reach his home country, the funds will be needed for an ongoing medical and rehabilitation care post stroke in Malaysia. Mr Sharif has no private medical insurance in Malaysia and is a senior citizen with no income.

All funds raised benefit:

Mohd Sharif B Arifin

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Rose Eusoff-Smith on behalf of Mohd Sharif B Arifin.
