Three-year old Zarqah Ghouse died on November 18, 2012 after her battle with a rare form of leukaemia. Several efforts were run to raise funds for Zarqah’a bone marrow transplant. These efforts were run by a few corporate organisations and the Dubai International Academy students that ran a weeklong charity event and raised Dh 11,000. The funds are to be donated to a person in need under Zarqah’s name.
Parents, Mohammed Shabaz Ghouse and Reena Chacko, had completed the funeral rites and returned to Abu Dhabi last week.
