Salma Bibi's Story
Doesn’t it simply break your heart to see little ones suffer? We are not undermining anyone’s pain, but seeing children in pain is one thing that none of us can watch without being moved a little. 10-year-old Salma Bibi’s story is full of pain and emotion as well. Salma hails from the Mardan district of the country and suffers from Tonsillitis. Tonsillitis, in case you are not familiar with the condition, is an inflammation of the upper throat. It has been three years since Salma Bibi has been suffering from this condition. But now, things have gotten to a point where desperate measures need to be taken. In Salma’s case, it is Tonsillectomy.
Tonsillectomy refers to the surgical removal of tonsils. As a key part of the lymphatic system, tonsils have a major role to play in fighting the infection. But when the glands become infected themselves, then it is time to remove them for alleviating pain. This is exactly the treatment 10-year-old Salma Bibi has been recommended as well. However, while there is no doubt about the effectiveness of the process, it is quite costly as well. And managing finances for Salma’s tonsillectomy is proving to be a really difficult task for Salma’s family.
“Salma was one year old when her father died,” says Salma Bibi’s mother “The onus of running this family is on me. But even as I work hard all day, it is nowhere near enough. Just not enough to put an end to my poor little child’s misery and suffering. My mind works furiously like a calculator all day, but there are not enough numbers to add, and that is the bitter reality with which me and my daughter have to live with.”
