Obaid Ullah 's Story
“Obaid has been sick for the last 4 years. He used to play around and read his books but now, his disease has made him too weak to do anything. He looks at his siblings hopelessly and asks me, ‘mama why can’t I play outside with them?’ It breaks my heart to see him in this condition. Please help my child.’” – Obaid’s mother
4 years old Obaid Ullah was born with ‘Patent Vitello-Intestinal Duct with Ileal Prolapse’ disease. This disease refers to obstruction of small intestine. He suffers from immense pain in abdomen and other severe symptoms such as severe fever, weakness, constipation, nausea and vomiting.
His first surgery was done when he was of 1.5 years old. Following that, doctors advised that he needs a second surgery i.e., Ileostomy Closure, to treat his disease permanently. For his treatment, his father has visited many public hospitals but none of them have him appointment date.
“There is nothing more painful for me than not being able to save my child” –Obaid’s Father shared with TH.
Obaid has two siblings –one younger brother and one younger sister. His father is the sole breadwinner of the house. He works as a laborer and hardly earns 12,000 PKR a month. He doesn’t have enough resources to get his son operated. When nothing worked in their favor, Obaid’s father got to know about Transparent Hands.

Obaid Ullah 's Story
Obaid Ullah, 4 ½ years old, had his ileostomy- a temporary opening for the stool passage- made after his surgery for vitellointestinal duct and ventral abdominal hernia. He was now advised surgery to reverse this ileostomy. This surgery was done at Akram Medical Complex, on 21-11-19, by Dr Naveed Haider. His ileostomy was closed and intestinal continuity was restored once again. He recovered well during 6 days of hospital stay and was discharged in good health.
