Farzana Bibi's Story
Before you dive into the details of Farzana Bibi’s ailment, please know that you can help her. Your donation, however small it may be, will change Farzana’s life for good. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Farzana’s Contracture Release as much as you can.
When Farzana was three years old, she accidentally burnt her hands in a house fire and sustained third degree burns. After the wounds healed, Farzana developed contractures on her right hand. Contractures are a permanent tightening of the muscles, tendons, skin, and nearby tissues that causes the joints to shorten and become very stiff.
Therefore, the doctor advised her to undergo a contracture release procedure. It is a procedure that is performed by lengthening the tendon in question, thereby correcting the deformity.
Unfortunately, while a contracture release procedure promises a pain-free future to Farzana Bibi, it is not an affordable procedure for her family. Farzana Bibi’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of a contracture release procedure. Her father is the sole earner of the family. He works as a manual laborer and hardly earns PKR 20,000 per month. With this income, he barely manages to cover the utilities and basic household expenses. Therefore, he is in no position to arrange for Farzana’s contracture release procedure. He told us:
“It has been ten years but the memory still lives in my head as if it was yesterday. The fire burnt my daughter’s hands and affected her future. I wish to help her. Please support us in our moment of need.”
After a lot of distress, Farzana Bibi has registered her case with Transparent Hands. We wish to set Farzana’s life on the path of normalcy. But, it won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Farzana’s Contracture Release procedure as much as you can.
