Wahab Jehanzeb's Story
14-year-old Wahab Jehanzeb’s whole world turned upside down, a few months ago, when his father passed away in the Mardan bomb blast. The tragic loss of his father meant that now his mother was the sole earner in the family and had to take care of Wahab and his five siblings, all on her own.
When you live in such socio-economic circumstances, basic human needs like adequate healthcare facilities become an unaffordable luxury. For two years, Wahab has had the problem of recurrent sore throat and fever. When his condition did not get better, his uncle took him to the nearest hospital. He underwent detailed examination and was advised for tests. On reviewing the reports of the tests, the doctor diagnosed his condition as bilateral enlarged tonsils and recommended a tonsillectomy along with EUA (examination under anaesthesia) nasopharynx for adenoids. Tonsillectomy refers to a surgical procedure performed for the removal of tonsils.
This might be a permanent solution for his suffering, but Wahab’s family cannot afford this surgery. Most days, they cannot manage two meals a day for the entire family. Paying for a surgery, through their own pocket, would mean that his siblings would have to go to bed without food for weeks.
“I am a single mother struggling to bring up my little children, all on my own. These are times of inflation and I do not like asking other people for help. But, I am helpless. The worries pertaining to our financial constraints keep me up all night.”– Wahab’s mother.
