Muhammad Saif's Story
Seeing little ones suffer is one of the most painful things one can experience as a human being and 11-year-old Muhammad Saif’s story is just as sad as things get. Saif underwent an initial surgery at 1.5 years of age in which an ileostomy stoma was made because of an extremely painful condition called midgut volvulus. Now he needs an ileostomy reversal surgery to rejoin his intestine which was divided and taken out in his first surgery.
In an ileostomy, the damaged part of the ileum is removed. Then, the end which was cut is diverted into an artificial opening in the abdominal wall. Saif has been advised an ileostomy reversal surgery to close the previously made ileostomy stoma but his family is unable to afford it. You see, Saif’s family is going through a financial crisis right now. Managing funds for this surgery is just not on the cards, no matter how hard Ibrahim, the father, tries!
“Farming is how we manage our life. But of late, things have been on a downside, all I am making right now is even less than 25,000 PKR per month. And I have a seven-membered family to manage! I am left with only two choices: watch my son suffer or hope that the kind donors at Transparent Hands will do something for my boy. And I am opting for the latter over the former”
