Sharafat Ali's Story
About two years ago, 40-year-old Sharafat Ali was involved in a terrible road accident. It resulted in injury to his right leg. Even though he had been treated at that time and it looked like things were back to normal. But unfortunately, that is not what happened. By profession, Sharafat Ali is a hawker, who only earns around 10,000 Pakistani rupees per month. Within this limited income, a total of 8 family members have to be provided for and 4 of them are young children. Sharafat cannot even consider getting a suitable treatment!
Luckily, he can still hope. Sharafat’s condition is diagnosed as avascular necrosis (AVN) of his right femoral head. In this condition, there is an interruption of blood supply to the bone and this causes a lot of problems. Extreme joint pain characterizes this condition, but Sharafat can be relieved from it. The doctors have recommended a total hip replacement surgery for his right hip. The only problem is, he cannot afford the procedure.
“I thought I was lucky enough to be alive after the road accident. I was aware that I would have broken a bone or two, but since I was operated on, I was glad to be able to live normally again. However, one year after my surgery, I started to feel a lot of pain again and I chose to ignore it. I tried but failed because the pain was anything but bearable. I am hoping now that this recommended surgery will once and for all rid me of this anguish.”-Sharafat Ali
Sharafat Ali’s case is no different from any other person in extreme pain that needs urgent treatment to fix their problem. There is only one sad difference, he cannot afford the treatment. He needs your help, and the best way of helping him is by donating for his surgery NOW!
