Zayn just donated $13,000 toward a young girl’s cancer treatment fund.
The “Pillowtalk” crooner reportedly made the generous contribution to support five-year-old Caitlin Robinson, who is battling high-risk neuroblastoma, the Daily Mail learned on Wednesday (January 22). Zayn made the quiet donation on Caitlin’s GoFundMe, which has since raised $18,000 of $197,000 goal as of yet.
As mother Helen Robinson describes on the fundraiser page, Caitlin was diagnosed with the disease in April 2019. Since then, she’s undergone several rounds of chemotherapy and MIBG therapy but to no avail. “I need to raise money to get my daughter abroad to Barcelona for life saving treatment which is not available in the UK on NHS,” Helen explained. “Please help save my daughter.”
Although Zayn did not leave a comment with his donation, the Icarus Falls crooner does list his full name as "Zayn Malik."
Helen has since reacted to the sumptuous donation, telling the Daily Mail she wishes to express her gratitude directly. “I woke up this morning to see my baby and I thought I might as well check the page as we were £10 away from £2,000,” she told the outlet. “And then I checked it was more than £12,000; I just could not believe what I was seeing. I want to thank Zayn Malik so much but I don't know how to get a hold of him. I am so grateful to him.”
