Bakht Mena's Story
Bakht Mena’s pain can be seen in her eyes. When she winces due to the severe pain in her knee, the eyes of her family members well up with tears. Your help can relieve Bakht Mena of the pain that is currently making her life miserable. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Bakht Meena’s Arthroplasty as much as you can.
Bakht Mena, a 62-year-old resident of Mardan, has been suffering from Osteoarthritis in her right knee since last year. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones wears down over time. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint, the disorder most commonly affects joints in the knees. Bakht Meena’s pain has become unbearable now. Until now, she had been taking symptomatic treatment. But the pain has become severe and the doctor has advised her to undergo right knee arthroplasty.
Arthroplasty is the only treatment that can bring her relief. However, unfortunately, Bakht Meena cannot afford the hefty cost of arthroplasty. Her son is the sole earner in a family of 12 members. He is a laborer and hardly manages to earn PKR 25000 per month. With this measly income, they are barely able to fulfill their basic needs. Her son told us;
“My mother has been in pain since last year, but we cannot do anything to help her due to financial constraints. As her son, I feel a great burden on my heart. I request you to please help us.”
The only thing standing between Bakht Mena and the treatment she needs is her inability to afford the expensive surgery. You can help Bakht Mena live a pain-free life. We urge you to donate for Bakht Meena’s arthroplasty and fill her life with joy.

Bakht Mena's Story
Bakht Mena, a 62-year-old resident of Mardan, had been suffering from pain and swelling in her legs for the last year. The constant pain and discomfort made it difficult for her to move around and carry out her daily activities. Upon consultation with a doctor, she was diagnosed with right knee Osteoarthritis, a condition that causes the cartilage in the knee to wear away over time, leading to pain and stiffness.
The doctor advised her to undergo total knee replacement surgery on her right knee, a procedure that would replace the damaged knee joint with an artificial one. Bakht Mena was admitted to Akbar Medical Complex in Mardan, where her operation was performed by the skilled surgeon Dr. Khurram on August 20, 2022. The surgery was a success and Bakht Mena was discharged from the hospital after a three-day stay. Bakht Mena's surgery was a success, and she was able to regain her mobility. She was now able to walk without pain and discomfort.Support More Patients Like Bakht Mena. Donate Online
