Laraib Bibi's Story
Instead of suffering endlessly due to her disease, Laraib deserves to live normally like other children. Your support can gift her a better life!
As other children play outside home, Laraib sits by the boundaries, watching them quietly. Laraib never had a normal childhood due to her congenital disease but over the past two years, her condition is causing so much pain to her. She can’t go out or play with her friends. Only surgery can help her get better and live normally like other kids.
Laraib was born with Rectovestibular Fistula – an anorectal congenital disorder where an abnormal connection (fistula) exists between the rectum and the vulval vestibule of the female genitalia. She underwent her first surgery (colostomy) when she was only 6 months old. Doctor placed a stoma bag on her abdomen for stool passage. Doctor recommended that Laraib needs to undergo another surgery to make her stool passage through normal route.
Laraib underwent her first surgery at a local hospital in emergency but now, she is not getting date for second surgery. Hospital is keeping them on waiting list for 3 years. Laraib is now three and half years old. She cannot bear this pain anymore. She is suffering from rashes on abdomen and hygiene issues due to which she cannot even go out. It’s also difficult for her parents to manage her stoma bag and clean it from time to time. Laraib’s father works as a plumber and hardly earns around 15,000 rupees a month in which he has to bear the expenses of his own family of 4 members, his two sisters, two brothers and their families. He cannot afford to get his daughter operated from a private hospital.
Laraib is now scheduled for her Anorectoplasty in a few days at Akram Medical Complex. Its her parents’ request to please donate as much as you can and let Laraib live a normal life like kids of her age.
