Shamim Bibi 's Story

At the age of 70 years, Shamim Bibi is suffering from pain that would even bring young people to their knees. You can change Shamim Bibi’s life and bring her relief in her old age. We urge you to donate for Shamim Bibi’s Orthopedic Surgery as much as you can. 

Two months ago, at the age of 70, Shamim Bibi slipped and fell down while walking. As a consequence, the neck of the femur of her right leg fractured.  A femoral neck fracture can tear the blood vessels and cut off the blood supply to the femoral head. If the blood supply to the femoral head is lost, the bone tissue dies (a process called avascular necrosis), leading to the eventual collapse of the bone. Since then, she has been on heavy painkillers to temporarily manage the symptoms. 

To treat this condition, the orthopedic surgeon has advised Shamim to undergo a Bipolar Hemiarthroplasty. It is the surgical procedure which replaces the head of a damaged femur with an implant designed to stabilize the femur and restore hip function. Unlike total hip replacement, in which both the ball of the femur and the hip socket are replaced, in this procedure, only the ball is replaced.

Unfortunately, Shamim’s family cannot afford the hefty cost of this orthopedic surgery. Shamim is financially dependent on her son who is a laborer and hardly earns PKR 15000 per month. Shamim told us:

“For the last two months, I have been in unimaginable pain. Please help me get back on my feet.”

You can help us with providing Shamim Bibi with a pain free future. Your donation is the only thing that can bring joy back into Shamim Bibi’s life. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Shamim’s Orthopedic surgery without any delay.

Shamim Bibi 's Story

Shamim Bibi, a 70-year-old resident of Pakpattan, fractured her hip bone when she fell on the ground two months ago. She was given some medicines for pain, but she found no relief. Then, she went to the local hospital for evaluation and the doctor advised Hemiarthroplasty to replace her damaged bone. Her family could not afford the expenses of the surgery, so they contacted Transparent Hands and registered their case. She was admitted to PSRD Orthopaedic Hospital and her operation was performed by Dr.Saleem on 29-06-2022. She was discharged from the hospital after three days of stay. She is back on her feet now and started walking with help.
