Ayesha Akram's Story
“Ayesha’s parents were married for many years but they never had kid even after going through various medical treatments. When Ayesha was born, she filled the lost happiness and hope in her parents’ lives. Their family was finally complete with the arrival of little Ayesha. But their happiness lasted only for a few days.”
Ayesha was diagnosed with Recto-vestibular Fistula after few days of her birth. That means she didn’t have normal passage to pass her stool. When she was only 21 days old, she had to undergo her first surgery and doctors made a temporary passage for stool on her abdomen (colostomy). Doctor suggested that she’d need successive surgeries to make the passage at normal site.
Ayesha’s first surgery was conducted free of cost at a local hospital. Her parents requested them for the second surgery but due to a long waiting list, they were unable to admit their daughter for free surgery. Ayesha’s father didn’t have enough money to pay for surgical expenses out of his pocket. He drives a rickshaw and hardly earns around 15,000 rupees a month from which he has to pay his house rent and also meet other family expenses. He also has to take care of his old father and his medical treatment. In such tough circumstances, it was impossible for family to pay for Ayesha’s second surgery. Her parents were very worried seeing their only child in pain. That’s when they came to know about Transparent Hands.
