When little Meera turned a princess fulfilling her Burj Khalifa wish

Suffering from Thalassemia, the little girl had her dream day atop the world’s tallest tower

By Muna Ahmed | Published Thursday, January 13, 2011


Meera on her visit to Burj Khalifa on Thursday. (MUSTAFA KASMI)

Quote:
It was a dream-come-true for Meera, who suffers from Thalassemia but has a wishlist. Floating in like a princess, the five-year-old from Kalba had a day she, and all around her, would remember forever when she walked into Burj Khalia – the world’s tallest tower.

Treated like a true princess from her favourite fairy tale, Meera could fulfill her wish thanks to Make A Wish Foundation that takes care of children like her.

Surviving with regular blood transfusion since she was six months old, for which she is brought to Sharjah every three weeks, Meera will have lots to talk about over her visit to the world’s tallest tower.

A sweet story.. something a little different from the norm.

Great shot there!! The tower really is outstanding and the way the picture is taken makes it blend well with surrounding. The effect that was added is making my eye a little blurry......
