Kulsoom Bibi's Story
Before you read Kulsoom Bibi’s story, please know that the only thing standing between her and the treatment she needs is lack of finances, so donate for her procedure as much as you can.
Kulsoom, a fifty-two-year-old resident of Noshero Feroz, has been suffering from ear discharge and decreasing hearing ability for the last fourteen years of her life. She was taken to an ENT specialist and the doctor ran some diagnostic tests. After the evaluation, Kulsoom was diagnosed with Bilateral Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM). Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM) results after perforation of tympanic membrane with persistent drainage from the middle ear. To treat this condition, the doctor advised Kulsoom to undergo a Left Tympanoplasty and a Right Mastoidectomy as a lasting cure. Tympanoplasty is a surgery to repair the eardrum. The eardrum is a thin layer of tissue that vibrates in response to sound. These procedures are crucial for Rajab to get better as her hearing ability is deteriorating drastically. Unfortunately, they are unable to afford this operation.
Kulsoom’s husband is a laborer and earns just enough to meet the basic needs of the family. With a family to raise, it is impossible for him to bear the expense of this procedure. Kulsoom shared with us:
“I have been suffering for the last fourteen years of my life. My hearing has been affected so much that it is also impacting me mentally.”
Now that Kulsoom’s case has been registered with Transparent Hands, we have promised to help her get cured. This will only be possible with your assistance. Hence, we urge you to please donate for Kulsoom’s procedure and help her get her normal life back.
