Sabiha Zakraiya's Story
Sabiha is in a world of pain and discomfort due to lumbar disc herniation. She is a widow and works as a sweeper. Her job requires bending, twisting, and straining her legs and back. Due to this health condition, it is difficult for her to do anything. She is not financially stable enough to pay for a laminectomy to overcome the pain. We urge you to donate for Sabiha’s Laminectomy and help her lead a pain-free life.
Sabiha, a 38-year-old resident of Karachi, has been suffering from lower back pain and right leg pain. She went to a local hospital where the doctor recommended an MRI test. After the diagnostic test, the doctor diagnosed her with a herniated lumbar disc. The doctor advised her to undergo lumbar Laminectomy. It is a surgical procedure to create space by removing bone spurs and tissues associated with arthritis of the spine. It usually involves removing a small piece of the back part (lamina) of the small bones of the spine (vertebrae).
She lives in a small house with her three children. She is a widow and works as a sweeper. She is the sole breadwinner for her children and earns just PKR 8,000 per month. It is difficult for her to survive on such a small monthly income. It is not possible for her to afford the hefty cost of the surgery she needs. She said with teary eyes:
“The pain, weakness, and numbness in my lower back and right leg are making me handicapped. I cannot even stand for more than a little while to prepare meals for my children. I request you to support my surgery and make it possible for me to live a healthy life for my children.”
Her family contacted our team, and now her case is registered with Transparent Hands. We are determined to raise funds for her surgery with your support. You can change this lady’s future with your donation. She has placed her hopes in your hands. We urge you to donate for Sabiha’s Laminectomy Surgery and receive countless blessings.
