Sakina Bibi's Story
Before you dive into Sakina Bibi’s tale of woes, please know that you can save her. Your donations, however small they may be, will give Sakina a pain-free chance at life. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Sakina’s Mesh Hernioplasty as much as you can.
For the last three years, sixty-five-year-old Sakina Bibi has been suffering from Paraumbilical Hernia. A paraumbilical hernia is a hole in the connective tissue of the abdominal wall in the midline with a close approximation to the umbilicus. If the hole is large enough there can be protrusion of the abdominal contents.
To treat this condition, the doctor has advised Sakina to undergo a Mesh Hernioplasty. Mesh hernioplasty is probably the safest way of treating a hernia. Surgical meshes are made of biological material and are placed in a manner such that they support the damaged tissue. While there is no doubt about the effectiveness of this surgical procedure, the fact that it is an expensive procedure cannot be denied as well. Sakina Bibi’s son is the sole earner of the family. His monthly income is PKR 26,000 per month which is hardly enough to manage household expenses. Therefore, he is in no position to arrange for his mother’s surgery. Sakina Bibi told us:
“I thank the Almighty for the hope that Transparent Hands has given me. Because otherwise, my life is too miserable, too bitter, and just too unfair. I haven’t been able to escape from its clutches up till now, but with the help of Transparent Hands, maybe I can win this last battle.”
After a lot of mental and physical anguish, Sakina Bibi has registered her case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to make her life easy as soon as we can. But, it won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Sakina’s Mesh Hernioplasty as much as you can.
