Hafsa Usman's Story
Before you dive into Hafsa’s tale of woes, please know that you can help her. Your donation, however small it may be, will put Hafsa on the path of a normal life. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Hafsa’s plastic surgery.
Eight years old Hafsa Usman suffers from clasped thumbs since birth. Congenital clasped thumb is also known as thumb-in-palm. It describes the position of the thumb being fixed in a bent position across the palm of the hand. Hafsa cannot straighten her thumb using her own muscles. Hafsa has already had a surgery to correct his right thumb. Now, she needs another surgery to correct her left thumb as well. The doctor has advised Hafsa to undergo Release with EIP Transfer.
While this surgical procedure is Hafsa’s best chance at living a normal life, it is certainly not an accessible procedure. Unfortunately, Hafsa’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of this surgery. Hafsa had her first surgery from a local hospital. Now, for the second surgery, Hafsa’s parents are unable to secure a date. Hafsa’s father told us:
“You may think this is a minor abnormality which in no way affects my daughter’s life. But, we know that pain she goes through everyday. She is unable to hold a pen, a hairbrush or a glass of water. She cannot even eat in peace without spilling everything onto herself. I request everyone who is reading this to help us.”
After a lot of distress, Hafsa’s parents have registered her case with Transparent Hands. We wish to help her get to normalcy as soon as we can. But, it is not at all possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to donate for Hafsa’s plastic surgery. Donate now and please donate as much as you can!
