Abu Dhabi: Offers to help the capital's first sextuplets are pouring in after Gulf News published an exclusive report on their plight on Wednesday.
Leading the efforts is Shaikh Ammar Bin Humaid Al Nuami, Crown Prince of Ajman, who has offered to provide free accommodation, medical assistance and financial support to the sextuplets born to a poor Egyptian couple.
Apart from the Crown Prince's offer, hundreds of Gulf News readers have offered to get in touch with the family.
The three boys and three girls — Mohammad, Ahmad, Khalifa, Israa, Sara and Donia — are currently being hospitalised at Corniche Hospital as they were born prematurely at seven months on October 12.
They are in a stable condition.
The National Health Insurance Company (Daman) has established contact with the family to look into health insurance solutions.
In addition 1,500 diapers will be sent to the family by a diapers manufacturer that wished to remain anonymous.
A large corporate bank has offered to gather donations from its employees to help the family get through the crisis while another company has offered plane tickets as a response to the sextuplets' mother Soraya Foully telling Gulf News that her biggest wish was to have her family in Egypt see her children and help her take care of them.
In good health
Soraya yesterday visited her son Khalifa, one of the sextuplets who underwent abdominal surgery and is currently under medical supervision at another public hospital.
She told Gulf News that her son will be fine, and that she looks forward to him joining his brothers and sisters.
