Muhammad Arham's Story
Muhammad Arham, aged 2 years is a resident of Lahore. Muhammad Arham was born with Anorectal malformation (ARM) which is also known as imperforate anus (IA). It is a condition characterised by the maldevelopment of the rectum and the anus. Symptoms may include absence of the first stool within 24 to 48 hours after birth, no anal opening, anal opening and swollen belly. In Muhammad Arham’s case, the anal passage was absent since birth and a Colostomy stoma was immediately made to assist him temporarily with stool passage. He now requires to undergo posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP) that is a type of pull-through procedure which surgically creates the child’s anus within the sphincter muscle. Read his mother’s narrative and donate for Muhammad Arham’s PSARP.
“Muhammad Arham, our child is a gift of God. But ever since his birth we are circling the hospitals for routine and emergency check-ups. My husband is a labourer, and he earns only PKR. 15,000. With a family of seven members to provide for, it is almost impossible to afford treatment for our son. I want him to have a healthy, happy life, like his other two siblings. Connection with Transparent Hands has given me some hope. I pray for our goal to be materialised sooner.”

Muhammad Arham's Story
2-year-old Muhammad Arham’s back passage was absent at the time of his birth. The doctors diagnosed his condition as imperforate anus which is a type of anorectal malformation. Because of this, Arham underwent a colostomy a few days after he was born. Later, the doctors advised surgery to make back passage for him when he turned two years old. For this purpose, Arham was admitted to Akram Medical Complex and his abdominoperineal pull-through surgery was performed by Dr. M. Bilal Mirza on 18.06.2021. He stayed in the hospital for eight days and was discharged in a stable condition. Arham has had a swift recovery post-surgery.
