Shah Meer's Story
COVID 19 has been tough on everyone but the people already living on the threshold of life and death were the ones most affected by it. Poor Shah Meer is one of them. 3 months ago, Shah Meer’s mother put on a mask on him before taking him out of the house. Soon after wearing the mask, Shah Meer fainted on the ground, gasping for breath. Shah Meer was immediately taken into a hospital. After a thorough examination and ECHO test, the doctor diagnosed him with a congenital heart disease named Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). TOF is a cardiac anomaly that refers to a combination of four related heart defects that commonly occur together.
To fix these defects, the doctor has advised Shah Meer to undergo an open-heart surgery as soon as possible for total correction.
Due to the pandemic cut downs, Shah Meer’s father has been out of work for 8 months. They are financially dependent on his mother’s income, which is barely enough to keep the household running.

It must be breaking him apart. Please help us save my son’s life, Transparent Hands is our last hope.” -Shah Meer’s Father
