Chaand Rauf's Story
Chaand Rauf, aged 10, is a resident of Lahore. In 2017, his Ileostomy was made for his intestinal obstruction. He was also investigated and diagnosed to have been suffering from Hirschsprung’s disease. He was operated with Duhamell pull through surgery in 2018 for this disease. Presently he has recovered and after the most recent follow up he has been advised for Ileostomy reversal by his doctors. As Chaand Rauf awaits Ileostomy Reversal, unfortunately, due to financial crisis the family can not afford this surgery for their child. His father narrates his ordeal in the following words:
“For the past five years life has tested us with all it’s might. We have circled back and forth to numerous hospitals in order to save this boy’s life. Now finally he is on the path to recovery as he has been advised Ileostomy reversal. Unfortunately we can not afford this procedure. I am a plumber by profession and I earn PKR. 20,000 per month. I am living in my mother’s house. In this meagre amount I am running a household and raising a family of four. In these circumstances I am failing to afford treatment for my son.”
