Shahida Bibi's Story
Before you dive into the gory details of Shahida’s ailment, please know that you can help her. Your donation, however small it may be, will help us change Shahida’s life for good. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Shahida’s Hip Replacement as much as you can.
Seven years ago, Shahida Bibi sustained trauma to her hip joint. They took her to a hospital for emergency management. After check up and X-rays, Shahida was diagnosed with femur neck fracture. Her fracture was treated with a surgery but due to the late presentation, the surgery did not work properly. Therefore, now, Shahida is unable to walk without support.
Now, the only option to treat her condition is a total hip replacement surgery. It is a surgery to replace the damaged hip joint. During the process, the surgeon replaces the old joint with an artificial joint (prosthesis). Unfortunately, Shahida Bibi and her husband cannot afford the hefty cost of a Hip Replacement surgery. Shahida’s husband is the sole earner of the family. He works as a manual labourer at a brick kiln and hardly manages to earn PKR 10000 per month. With a family of four to take care of in the age of rising inflation, they are in no position to arrange for Shahida’s hip replacement surgery. He told us:
“Seven years ago, my wife was at a picnic when she fell from the tree. We thought her injury was getting better, but we were wrong. Over the years, it got worse, and now surgery is the only option for her cure. God help us.”
After a lot of distress, with the help of their doctor, Shahida has requested Transparent Hands for help. We wish to get her healthy and back up on her feet as soon as possible. But, that won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to donate for Shahida’s Hip Replacement as much as you can. Donate now!
