Khadija Fatima's Story
Before you dive into the gory details of Khadija Fatima’s ailment, please know that your help can relieve her of the uncertainty and pain that currently surrounds her health. Your financial help, however small it may be, will help Khadija lead a normal life. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Khadija’s Ileostomy Reversal.
At the tender age of four months, Khadija Fatima suffered from vomiting and diarrhea. At first, her parents treated it with home remedies. But, later, the problem persisted, and they had to consult a doctor.
The doctors conducted an exploratory laparotomy. An exploratory laparotomy is a surgical procedure in which the abdominal organs are examined for disease. As per the results, the doctors diagnosed Khadija Fatima with an Ileocolic Intussusception. It is an intestinal obstruction that blocks food or fluid from passing through. Later, the doctors performed an ileostomy to create an artificial stoma on her stomach.
Now, as the final step, the doctors have advised Khadija Fatima to undergo an ileostomy reversal surgery. It will restore her bowel continuity to normal. Unfortunately, Khadija Fatima’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of the surgery. Khadija’s father is the sole earner of the family. He works as a manual laborer. He hardly manages to earn PKR 25000 per month. Therefore, he is in no position to arrange for Khadija’s surgery. He told us:
“My daughter is not even one, and she has already faced the pain of a lifetime. No father can bear the sight of his daughter wailing in pain.”
At the mere age of one year, Khadija Fatima has experienced the pain of a lifetime. We wish to relieve her of the pain that has coloured her childhood grey. But, we cannot do that without your help. Please donate for Khadija’s Ileostomy Reversal as much as you can.
