MALAYSIANS have come together and raised RM40,000 to enable nine-year-old Risty Anak Febry to undergo a heart surgery that will change her life for the better.
The donation drive for the Year Three pupil from Sarawak, initiated by Star Foundation, is now officially closed.
The foundation thanks all donors who contributed to the fundraising effort.
Excess money will be used for the next eligible patient under the programme.
