Muhammad Ramzan's Story
Muhammad Ramzan 3 years old boy was suffering from Anorectal Malformation (ARM) resulting in absent back passage- Imperforate Anus. His emergency colostomy was done at 2nd day of his life to make temporary passage of stool. He was advised successive surgeries to construct his back passage and then close the colostomy. His 1st surgery was done through Transparent Hands in May, 2018 and this time his 2nd surgery was done in Akram Medical Complex on 26-07-18 by Dr Naveed Haider who closed his colostomy stoma. He stayed for four days in hospital with good post-operative recovery and was discharged.
Muhammad Ramzan's Story
Thank you for donating for his first surgery. Now, he needs your support for his second & final surgery!
Muhammad Ramzan is a born patient of Anorectal malformation – the anus and rectum didn’t develop properly. His Colostomy was done in a local hospital when he was only 2 days old. During his first surgery, colon tract was diverted on to skin for evacuation of stool. He was planned to get his second surgery for formation of back passage at its usual site when he grows up. After a few months, Ramzan started experiencing severe abdominal pain and discomfort. His father took him to many hospitals but he didn’t get relief from anywhere.
Doctor suggested that Ramzan needs two more surgeries; one to make the normal tract and other to reverse colon diversion which is already done. His colon onto skin is socially unacceptable as he feels embarrassed being carried in pamper everywhere he goes. Ramzan’s father works as a carrier of goods for someone and hardly earns around 12,000 rupees a month. In such meager income, he finds it hard to feed his family of 3 and also pay for the treatment of his son. It’s impossible for this family to pay for Ramzan’s surgeries. Ramzan’s father contacted a few local hospitals for free surgical treatment of his son but nobody paid attention to them until he found about Transparent Hands.
Ramzan underwent his Posterior Sagittal Anorectoplasty (PSARP) on 5th May 2018 at Akram Medical Complex through Transparent Hands. He recovered well after his first surgery and was advised rest until he become ready for his second and final surgery: Colostomy Closure. Your support has enabled him to undergo first surgery successfully. Now he needs donations for his second surgery.
We request you to please help him just like you did for his first surgery. Donate for his surgery now so that he can get rid of his congenital defect permanently and start living normal life like other kids of his age!
