Zayn Malik helped a 5-year-old Lancashire, England, girl named Caitlin who is battling Stage 4 neuroblastoma.
Caitlin’s mother, Helen Robinson, launched a GoFundMe named “Save Caitlin,” to help cover the costs of her treatments and set the goal to £150,000 – roughly $195,000 US dollars. In a desperate attempt to save her daughter’s life, Helen wants to take her five-year-old to Barcelona for “for life saving treatment which is not available in the UK on NHS.”
After hearing Caitlin’s story, the former One Direction member quietly donated £10,000 – or $13,000 USD. Robinson seemingly confirmed the 27-year-old musician’s donation on her Facebook page, where she wrote, “Omg ZAYN MALIK DONATED TEN GRAND.”
Malik’s apparent donation brought the total money raised for Caitlin to £14,468 of its £150,000 goal as of press time.
