Zainab Bibi's Story
Zainab’s parents have a lot of plans for their daughter. Unfortunately, those plans have faded into an uncertain future. Zainab is on a threshold between life and death. Therefore, we urge you to please donate for Zainab’s ASD closure as much as you can.
Zainab’s condition is congenital. But, it became known to her parents when she suffered from severe chest pain. Moreover, Zainab’s ailment is also evident from her blue nails and lips and occasional nosebleeds. When the symptoms persisted, Zainab’s parents took her to the hospital. Upon thorough investigations, she was found to have Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) and atrial septal defect (ASD). PAPVC is a rare congenital cardiac defect. In PAPVC, the blood flow from a few pulmonary veins returns to the right atrium instead of the left atrium. ASD is a hole in the heart that allows blood to pass from the left to the right side of the heart.
To correct these defects, the doctor has advised Zainab Bibi to undergo ASD Closure surgery. In the surgery, the surgeon repairs the defect with a patch that covers the hole between two chambers of the heart. The surgery is the only option for Zainab Bibi’s cure. But unfortunately, it is not an accessible one.
Zainab’s parents cannot afford the cost of the surgery. Zainab’s father is a daily wage worker and hardly earns PKR 10000 per month. He told us:
“Zainab is my firstborn daughter. She needs life-saving surgery, but we do not have the money to arrange one. I hardly earn 10,000 rupees. Even if I save for a lifetime, I won’t be able to raise enough money. Please help us.”
Zainab’s parents have requested Transparent Hands for help. We hope that with your donations, we can arrange her surgery for free. Please donate for Zainab’s ASD closure and help as much as you can.
