Shafiq Ahmed Shah's Story
This poor father is fighting the battle of his life due to heart disease. Only your support and donations can save his life!
Shafiq Ahmed is a 52 years old man who lives in Mianwali with his wife and three children. One of her daughters is divorced and she is on dialysis due to her kidney failure. Shafiq Ahmed works as a rickshaw driver and he hardly earns around 15,000 rupees a month. In such meager income, he struggles to manage his household expenses. He gets her daughter treated with the help of charity and donations which he receives from friends and family. In such miserable situation, Shafiq is diagnosed with Single Vessel Heart Disease.
Shafiq experienced his first heart attack in 2014. Doctor told him to undergo angioplasty and stent placement but due to his limited income, he gave him medicines for temporary relief until he collects money for his procedure. Shafiq requested many local hospitals for free treatment but nobody paid attention to him. He experienced second heart attack in July 2018. He underwent angiography with the help of an NGO but they are unable to collect money for his stent. Doctor advised him to undergo intervention as soon as possible. A little delay in treatment can lead to third heart attack and it can be fatal this time. Due to chest pain and weakness, he is unable to drive rickshaw these days. He is the only earning member of his family. His wife and children are very worried for his health. When he came to know about Transparent Hands, he was relieved to know that his life can be saved.
Shafiq Ahmed is now scheduled for his Angioplasty in a few days at National Hospital, Lahore. It’s his humble request to you all to please donate for his procedure as much as you can. Even a single penny can create a huge impact in his life.
Donate and save his life now!
