Daim Masih's Story
“I don’t know how to explain my happiness in words. When I had no hope of my son’s recovery, you all came into his life and proved that superheroes do exist. Daim needs his last surgery and I’m sure you’ll support him just like you did in his previous surgery” – Daim’s mother.
Daim is a 5 years old loving boy who was born with a disease – Anorectal Malformation. Due to this disease, he had underdeveloped anus and rectum causing the formation of narrow anal passage. At the age of 6 months, his first surgery (Colostomy) was done in a local hospital. When he was 4 years old, he was operated for the second time to construct his back passage. Now, he needs colostomy closure for his normal bowel functioning.
His father has tried really hard for one year to arrange the required money for his surgery but failed. Daim’s father is a daily wage laborer and earns only 15,000 per month. Daim has one younger brother who is a toddler. His grandparents also live with them. They live in a small house in joint ownership.
Daim has reached the age when he should attend school, play with friends and live life in a carefree manner but this disease has crippled his social life due to stoma bag which is placed on his abdomen. He cannot even go out and play due to hygiene issues. Daim’s father knocked at the door of many institutes for financial help but every time he was returned empty-handed. That’s when he came to know about Transparent Hands. With the help of kind supporters like you, Daim underwent Anorectoplasty in Akram Medical Complex.
Now he is scheduled for his final surgery “colostomy closure” after which he’ll be able to perform his bodily functions normally. Your donations can help Daim’s parents to build a firm foundation of his future.

Daim Masih's Story
Daim, 5 years old, had his colostomy made at 6 months of age for anorectal malformation present since birth. After this, his stool passage was reconstructed in another surgery a year ago. Now, he was advised a colostomy closure- surgery to reverse the colostomy. His surgery was done at Akram Medical Complex on 25-10-19 by Dr Naveed Haider. His colostomy was closed and intestinal continuity was restored. He recovered well in five days of hospital stay and was discharged in good health.
