Ume Maira's Story
Ume Maira is a three’s old toddler who needs your immediate help for her treatment to get over the effects of electrocution. Because of an accident caused by electric current, Ume Maira cannot straighten her finger anymore. What she needs right now is a contracture release procedure, a procedure that is performed by lengthening the tendon in question, thereby correcting the deformity. Ume Maira has been advised a full-thickness skin graft i.e. FTSG as well. These are commonly used to cover skin loss from affected areas. While there is no doubt on the effectiveness of the aforementioned procedures, there is no denying that they are quite expensive as well. And that’s why Ume Maira’s parents have not been able to afford the treatment for their little one, yet.
Ume Maira’s father is a painter by profession. He earns his family’s bread by filling other people’s lives with colors when his own life is a grey sketch of hardships & struggles. The reward for his arduous work is equivalent to the minimum monthly income of a daily wager. Providing for a family of seven, all of whom depend on Ume Maira’s father for their needs & wants, is already a mountainous feat that Ume Maira’s father is supposed to accomplish every month. Her daughter’s treatment, however, completely throws the equation out of balance. He says:
“I want my baby’s deformity gone forever, I want her pain to vanish as if it didn’t exist, at all. But life doesn’t work that way. I am a poor man who just cannot make her daughter’s pain go away. Am I the worst father or what?”
Battling with life all the time has pushed Maira’s father into a negative frame of mind. Transparent Hands promises to inject optimism back into Maira’s family, but with your help. You know the little angel’s story, you know what it takes to make her pain go away. So, without any further hesitation, delay for Ume Maira’s contracture release and FTSG NOW!
