Muhammad Sudais's Story
“Losing our elder child to heart disease still haunts us every day and now, my youngest one is suffering from the same disease. I don’t understand why God had to choose us again? Why our little baby has to go through so much agony in this age? Seeing him crying in pain takes my breath away. If he doesn’t undergo surgery in time, we might lose him forever.” – sobbed Sudais’s father
Muhammad Sudais is a two-year-old boy who has been suffering from a heart disease since birth. He was only 4 days old when his minor bandage surgery was done in a local hospital in Peshawar. He was diagnosed with a large VSD-Ventricular Septum Defect; in which the walls of the ventricles are not developed properly. He was however left untreated because of lack of healthcare facilities in his town. His parents took him to another city for treatment, but doctors demanded a huge sum of money for his heart surgery. This poor family doesn’t have enough resources to get their child treated.
Muhammad’s father is a rickshaw driver and earns only 600-800 PKR per day. He has the responsibility of not only his 2 children and wife, but also his ill father and a younger brother. In his meagre income, he hardly manages to make both ends meet. They all live together in a small house in their village.
Muhammad Sudais is getting weaker with each passing day. He suffers from chest blockage, frequent fevers and difficulty in breathing. If not treated in time, Sudais may lose his life like his brother. After struggling for 2 years, his family found out about Transparent Hands and requested for help.
