Aiman Riaz's Story
Since Aiman was 3 years old, she frequently suffered from fever and sore throat. She also felt pain and difficulty while swallowing. After frequent episodes of these symptoms, her parents took her to the doctor and she was diagnosed with tonsillitis. It has been 12 years since that time. Aiman is 15 years old now. Her tonsillitis flares up every few months, and the local doctor prescribes her medicines for temporary relief.
Witnessing her suffering, the ENT specialist has now advised a tonsillectomy which is a surgical procedure for removal of the tonsils so she can get permanent relief from her recurrent tonsillitis. But her father cannot afford the surgery on his own. He owns a general store and earns only PKR 12,000 to PKR 15,000 per month. He has two other children and they reside in a 4.5 Marla house.
Despite multiple visits to local hospitals, they could not get an appointment for her surgery. They also cannot get their daughter treated in a private medical facility, as it is completely out of their budget.
An acquaintance told them about his free surgery carried out through the help of our organization, so they have contacted us for help and we have taken up their case.
Aiman has been living with the disease symptoms for 12 years now. This has not only affected her day-to-day work but also her sleep. Your donations will help her get an urgent surgery and consequently permanent relief from her suffering.
