Diqra Rehmatullah's Story
It breaks our hearts to see young kids in pain. They are the ones who are most weak and vulnerable to cardiac diseases. But we want to help as many as we can. So, donate for Diqra’s open-heart surgery.
When Diqra was six months months old, she suffered from weakness and weight loss. Therefore, her parents took her to the hospital where she had her ECHO. As per the results of ECHO, the doctor diagnosed her with CHD. Congenital heart disease is a general term for a range of birth defects that affect the normal way the heart works. The term “congenital” means the condition is present from birth. Congenital heart disease is one of the most common types of birth defect.
Consequently, to treat this condition, the doctor advised Diqra to undergo open-heart surgery. Open-heart surgery is any type of surgery where the chest is cut open and surgery is performed on the muscles, valves, or arteries of the heart.
Unfortunately, Diqra’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of open-heart surgery. Diqra’s father is the sole earner of the family. He works at a stall and sells children’s garments and hardly manages to earn PKR 30,000 per month. With this income, he barely manages to keep the household running. He finds himself in no position to arrange for his daughter’s open-heart surgery. He told us:
“Diqra is my youngest kid. She is the apple of my eye. Her life is under constant threat and I don’t know how to save my child. Whoever is reading this, I request you to please save my kid’s life.”
As a last resort, Diqra’s parents have registered her case with Transparent Hands. We wish to get her the best treatment possible. Now, all we need is your earnest help. Click the green button above and donate for Diqra’s open-heart surgery.
