Fatima Zahid's Story
She cannot even go out and play due to her disease. Please help her!
Fatima Zahid is a 2.5 years old poor girl who lives in a small town of Mandi Bahauddin with her parents, brother and aunt. Fatima’s father works as a daily wage laborer and he hardly earns around 15,000 rupees a month in which he has to take care of his household expenses. He also has responsibility of his widowed sister who lives with them.
Fatima is a born patient of Recto-Vestibular Fistula – an anorectal congenital disorder where an abnormal connection (fistula) exists between the rectum and the vulval vestibule of the female genitalia. She was only 7 months old when she underwent her first surgery ‘colostomy’ at a local hospital. A temporary passage was made on her abdomen for passage of stools. Doctor recommended her parents to prepare her for another surgery for colostomy closure. Fatima’s parents don’t have enough money to get her operated. Her first surgery was done free of cost by hospital but now they are refusing to perform another surgery for free. They contacted many hospitals and institutes but nobody paid attention to them. Fatima experiences discomfort due to her stoma bag. Her parents cannot even take her out due to bad odor and hygiene issues.
Fatima is now registered with Transparent Hands and she is scheduled for her Anorectoplasty in a few days at Akram Medical Complex. Her surgery will only be possible with your support. We request you to please donate for this little baby. Only your donations can enable her to start her healthy life again.
