Zahra Fatima's Story
At the age of mere two years, Zahra Fatima has gone through the pain of a lifetime. We wish to relieve her of her pain. Now, all we need is your help. Please donate for Zahra’s Open-Heart Surgery as much as you can.
Zahra Fatima fell prey to frequent chest infections since birth. Her mother told us that she also suffered from brief episodes of breathlessness on mild exertion. After consultation and thorough investigation, her parents found out that this little angel Zahra has been suffering from Atrial Septal Defect since birth. ASD refers to a condition in which a hole exists in the cardiac septum that separates the upper two atrial chambers. This cardiac defect can lead to serious sequelae. Consequently, to treat this defect, the cardiac surgeon has advised her to undergo open-heart surgery.
Unfortunately, Zahra’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of open-heart surgery. Zahra’s father works a private job and hardly earns PKR 15000 per month. This meagre income is hardly enough to keep the household running. Therefore, he finds himself in no position to arrange for his daughter’s surgery. Without surgery, Zahra’s life would stay compromised. Zahra’s mother told us:
“It seems that for the past two years, our life has converged to one single point – my daughter’s sickness. The house reeks of it. All of us are constantly running away from the shadow of death. My God heals my little angel soon.”
After a lot of distress, Zahra Fatima’s parents have decided to register his case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to get him happy and healthy as soon as possible. Now, all we need is your help. Please donate for Zahra’s open-heart surgery as much as you can. Your donations will help us save this little baby’s life. Donate Now!
