Hareem Fatima's Story
At the age of mere three years, Hareem Fatima has gone through the pain of a lifetime. We wish to relieve her of her pain. Now, all we need is your help. Please donate for Hareem’s ASD closure as much as you can.
Three years old little angel Hareem Fatima has been suffering from Atrial Septal Defect since birth. ASD refers to a condition in which a hole exists in the cardiac septum that separates the upper two atrial chambers. This cardiac defect can lead to serious consequences. Consequently, to treat this defect, the cardiac surgeon has advised Hareem Fatima to undergo an ASD repair. In short, ASD repair is a surgical procedure. In this procedure, the cardiac surgeon places a patch to close the hole. The only thing between Hareem and the treatment she needs is financial constraints.
Unfortunately, Hareem Fatima’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of an ASD closure surgery. Hareem’s father is the sole earner of the family. He works at a factory and hardly manages to earn PKR 26000 per month. With a family of five to take care of, he is in no position to arrange for his daughter’s surgery. He told us:
“Every day I see my daughter fighting with the shadow of death that engulfs her. I wish no father has to face this situation. Whoever is reading this, I request you to please help me and my daughter.”
Now, with the help of their doctor, Hareem Fatima’s parents have registered their case with Transparent Hands. We have assured them that we would try our best to get their daughter happy and healthy as soon as we can. Now, all we need is your help. Therefore, we request you to donate for Hareem’s ASD closure as much as you can.
