Abdul Ghaffar's Story

Abdul Ghaffar belongs to an underprivileged area of Sindh, called Ghotki. He is a 12 years old kid who was suffering from Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) and obstructed Right Ventricular Outflow Tract (RVOT); a condition in which heart can enlarge and progressively fail to function.

Doctors had recommended him an urgent VSD Closure and RVOT resection; which could bring his heart back to effective functioning. Hence, his surgery was performed on June 16th, 2016 by Dr Salman Ahmad Shah at Ittefaq Hospital in emergency.

He comes from a large family comprising of four sisters and 2 brothers. Being a farmer, his father merely earns rupees 5500 per month for feeding his whole family. This makes it impossible for him to bear the expense of his son’s treatment. Though his surgery was conducted in emergency but we still require the funds to pay to the hospital’s bill.

Your donation could help Abdul Ghaffar’s to become healthy and be a source of financial help for his family. 

Please Note: In certain situations, we proceed with the patient's surgery/medical procedure despite incomplete funding displayed on the website. Following the surgery/medical procedure, we persist in collecting funds and maintain the campaign on the website until funding is secured in full. Hospitals have granted us a grace period for bill payment.
