Jamila Bibi's Story
Before you proceed to read the gory details of Jamila’s ailment, we wish to remind you that you can help her. Your donations, however small they may be, can help Jamila Bibi get back on her feet. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Jamila’s Knee Replacement as much as you can.
For the last year, Jamila Bibi has been suffering from Osteoarthritis involving both knees. Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes the cartilage in the knee joint to thin out. In consequence, the surfaces of the joint become roughened, thus creating friction. As a result, the movement becomes painful, and the joint becomes stiff. Due to this condition, Jamila Bibi is not able to get up or walk. Moreover, the pain has become unbearable for her.
To treat this, the orthopaedic surgeon has advised Jamila Bibi to undergo a total knee replacement surgery. It is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. While the knee replacement seems like an easy solution to all of Jamila’s problems, it is certainly not an accessible solution. Jamila Bibi cannot afford the hefty cost of this surgery.
Jamila’s husband is the sole earner of the family. He works a private job and hardly manages to earn PKR 20000 per month. In this measly income, it has become very difficult for him to arrange for his wife’s surgery. Jamila told us:
“The pain has become unbearable for me. For the last many months, I haven’t been able to walk or stand up on my own. Please help me get back on my feet.”
As a last resort, Jamila Bibi has registered his case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to get her back on her feet as soon as we can. But, it won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Jamila’s Knee Replacement as much as you can.
