About my fundraising

Every week thousands of kids walk to school; for 10-year-old Ayaan, this short journey is impossible.

Ayaan loves meeting up with his friends, traveling to new places and trying new things. However, even walking short distances causes terrible damage to his skin, so staying active with his friends is a real challenge.

Ayaan suffers from Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) - a genetic condition which causes the skin to blister and tear at the slightest touch, leaving behind open wounds.

Sometimes, EB causes so much pain that he is unable to walk.

'It breaks my heart that Ayaan can't take part in activities that other children take for granted, like playing football and walking to school,' says his mum, Tayiba. 'He gets so frustrated, he'll say 'I hate myself, I don't like my skin'...more more
