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. With your support, she can continue her job to feed her children.

Sabiha Zakraiya's Story

Sabiha, a 38-year-old resident of Karachi, found herself trapped in a debilitating situation. As a widow and a hardworking sweeper, her job demanded constant bending, twisting, and straining of her legs and back. Over time, she began experiencing excruciating lower back pain and radiating pain in her right leg, making even the simplest tasks an unbearable challenge. Desperate for relief, she sought medical help and was directed to a local hospital, where an MRI test was recommended.

The results of the diagnostic test revealed that Sabiha was suffering from a herniated lumbar disc. This condition occurs when the soft cushion-like discs between the vertebrae in the spine rupture or bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves and causing severe pain. The doctor advised Sabiha to undergo a lumbar laminectomy, a surgical procedure that involves removing a portion of the affected disc to release the pressure and relieve the pain. However, the cost of the surgery was beyond Sabiha's means, and she was left with no option but to reach out for assistance.

Fortunately, Sabiha's case came to the attention of Transparent Hands. With the support of kind-hearted donors, funds were raised to cover the expenses of Sabiha's much-needed surgery. Her case was registered, and she was admitted to Murshid Hospital, Karachi, where the doctor performed the lumbar laminectomy on 3-06-2023.

The surgery was a success, and after two days of post-operative care and monitoring, Sabiha was deemed fit for discharge. The weight of constant pain lifted from her shoulders as she left the hospital, grateful for the compassionate donors who had stepped forward to help her in her time of need. The generosity of the donors, combined with the expertise of the medical professionals transformed her life. 

Sabiha's story highlights the profound impact of kindness, proving that even the smallest acts can change lives. In her darkest hour, the generosity of strangers brought light and renewed hope.
