Ume Kalsoom's Story
Before you dive into Ume Kalsoom’s tale of woes, we want to know that you can help her get rid of this pain. The only thing standing between Ume Kalsoom and the surgery she needs is financial constraint. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Ume Kalsoom’s mesh repair as much as you can.
Forty-six years old Ume Kalsoom has been in a perpetual state of discomfort for the last six years. Along with discomfort, she has been facing severe abdominal pain. After consultation, she was diagnosed with Hernia. To treat this condition, the doctor advised her to undergo mesh repair surgery. But, due to limited financial resources, Ume Kalsoom was not in a position to arrange for major surgery. Therefore, Ume Kalsoom resorted to medication for temporary relief. Now, surgery has become crucial for Ume Kalsoom. Mesh repair is probably the safest way of treating a hernia. Surgical meshes are made of biological material and are placed in a manner such that they support the damaged tissue. While there is no doubt about the effectiveness of this surgical procedure, it is an expensive procedure.
Unfortunately, even now, Ume Kalsoom has no means to afford the hefty cost of her surgery. Her husband is the sole earner of the family. He works as a labourer and hardly earns his living. Ume Kalsoom told us:
“When the doctors ask me why I didn’t undergo surgery six years ago, I have nothing to tell them. What can I do? I am standing in the same position I was six years ago. Helpless and hopeless.”
After a lot of distress, Ume Kalsoom has registered her case with Transparent Hands. We have assured her that we would arrange her surgery as soon as possible. Now, all we need is your help. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Ume Kalsoom’s mesh repair as much as you can.
