Ghulam Fatima's Story
Ghulam Fatima is a 56-year-old woman that works as tailor for earning for her 5 daughters, 2 sons, and elderly husband. Both of the sons are married, and three of her daughters are married, while one is a first year student and the other has a backbone issue, making her unable to work; Her husband is also too old to work. Currently, they are living in a Marla house given to them by the government, however Ghulam is living in her cousin’s house in Kasur because of her tailoring profession.
Ghulam has been suffering from pain in her throat due to nodular goiters for the last 12 years, as well as having difficulty in breathing for last 1 year. Luckily, she found Transparent Hands and was able to meet with one of our doctors, Dr. Ahmed Fawad, and he was able to properly diagnose the goiters. Our doctor also suggested a surgery for this particular diagnosis, a thyroidectomy, to completely rid her of these painful goiters.
She is very poor, earning 20,000 PKR a month, being able to hardly manages her husband and daughter medicines and running household expenses. This is not nearly enough to be able to pay for the thyroidectomy she desperately needs in order to relieve her pain, and while she is out of work, it makes it more financially unstable for her family as a whole.
