Ghulam Murtaza's Story

Where does one go when the hearty act of laughter results in searing pain? When you don’t wish to laugh away the worries because laughter turns them twofold? 23 year old Ghulam Murtaza is stuck in the gyre of these questions. At first, 3 years ago, the doctor diagnosed him with a left varicocele. . Upon consultation, the doctor advised Ghulam Murtaza to undergo surgery to treat the left varicocele. Per his recommendation, Ghulam had his surgery done at a local hospital. Unfortunately, the surgery did not go successful. Afterwards, upon consistent pain and a bulge on the left side of his groin area, the doctor has diagnosed him with a left inguinal hernia. An inguinal hernia occurs when the intestinal tissue protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. Please donate for Ghulam Murtaza’s Herniorrhaphy.

Now, seeing his condition, the doctor has advised him to undergo a Herniorrhaphy. It is a surgical repair of a hernia, in which a surgeon repairs the weakness in the abdominal wall through stitches. 

Ghulam Murtaza’s world turned to pieces when his father passed away and he had to drop out of school and work to feed his family. Now he works at a barbershop and barely earns PKR 12000 per month. With 4 family members dependent on his measly income, Ghulam Murtaza is in no situation to bear the financial stress of his surgery. Therefore, we urge you to please donate for Ghulam Murtaza’s Herniorrhaphy.

“This disease has disrupted my whole life. One has to plan his whole life around it. I stay away from so many situations to avoid the pain, I do not bend, lift heavy things. It’s fine but something as small as cough or a sneeze brings tears to my eyes. How can one control a cough? It’s not possible. Please help me end this misery.” – Ghulam Murtaza

With the help of his employer, Ghulam Murtaza has registered his case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to put his life out of misery instantly. Ghulam Murtaza needs your kind financial support. Please donate for Ghulam Murtaza’s Herniorrhaphy, however small the amount may be.
