Muhammad Talha's Story
Muhammad Talha, who is now one year and seven months old, was living a normal life like other babies in his hometown Sargodha. Just after a few months of his birth, he started experiencing fits and his skin often turned blue due to excessive weeping. Talha’s parents took him to a local hospital where his Echocardiography was done. Talha was diagnosed with ‘patent ductus arteriosus’ which means there was an abnormal blood flow between the major arteries of his heart. Doctor recommended them to undergo urgent cardiac surgery and advised to come to Lahore to get treated. Talha’s father took him to government hospital many times. They were given surgery date two times but it was postponed. His father gave up all hopes as he didn’t have enough money to take him to another hospital. He couldn’t even afford to pay for the bus fare every time. They went to the hospital again and were shocked to hear that the surgery can’t be performed until next year. They can’t wait any longer otherwise it can be threatening for Talha’s life. Little Talha is in severe pain for more than a year. He is getting weak day by day and also having difficulty in breathing and eating. Talha’s father cannot afford the surgery cost as he is a sole earner for his family of 13 members and hardly makes both ends meet. We are the last hope of this distressed family. Please donate for an urgent surgery of this child. Only with your help, he’ll be able to get back to his healthy life.
