Humaira Rehman's Story
Humaira Rehman, aged 35, hails from the Khanewal district and suffers from a condition called a paraumbilical hernia. In this condition, a hole exists in the connective tissues of the abdominal wall, leading to a higher risk of protrusion of abdominal contents e.g. bowel. It has been eight miserable years since Humaira first felt the dreadful pain that is associated with this condition. Swelling at the umbilical area, abdominal stretch, and worsening symptoms over the last twelve months have made Humaira Rehman’s life as full of misery as it can be. It is as if the pain never leaves her!
It is not as if all hope is lost for Humaira. There does exist a treatment that can put an end to Humaira’s pain. You see, Humaira has been advised to undergo a paraumbilical hernioplasty, a surgical procedure that can fix a hernia. But while the procedure is an effective one, it is also a costly one. And Humaira’s current financial status doesn’t allow her to afford it, even if the procedure promises to be an antidote to her pain. She says:
“My husband is an Imam at the local mosque. In his meagre income of 9000 PKR/month, we have to manage a family of six. And with no assets in our possession, the chances of raising or saving enough funds for my hernioplasty are slimmer than ever. The walls of the dingy 3-Marla house in which we live are a witness to the pain I have to endure every day. And the way things are right now, I haven’t got much hope in the future either”
