Bilal from Bangledesh cared deeply for his family. When he found out his father was suffering from severe heart problems, he borrowed AED 95,400 to pay his medial fees and to help pay for his sister’s marriage expenses. Unable to make the repayments, he was sentenced to jail. After 5 years the medical team in Al Ain jail discovered he was also suffering from Diabetes and his own heart problems. In 2011 the Faraj Fund worked with Emirates Today to tell his story and were immediately approached by an anonymous donor. This generous individual arranged to settle Bilal’s debt in full and the Faraj Fund were able to pay for him to be flown home and reunited with his family.
