Ali Sher's Story
Ali Sher, 37 years-of-age, has been suffering from severe pain in his joints for the last seven years. The severity of his condition was unknown for years and Ali Sher struggled with walking. Initially, he visited multiple hospitals where he was given medicines to temporarily gain relief from the pain.
This cycle has continued for years. After conducting complete tests, the doctor diagnosed Ali Sher’s condition as rheumatoid arthritis. Each time Ali’s pain in his joints would become unbearable, he’d visit a doctor who would give him pain killers and that’s about it. About a month ago, the pain did not settle like always and became unbearable to the extent that Ali Sher would be on the verge of fainting. It got to a point where he was rushed to the hospital.
The disease has severely affected his right ankle joint and dislocated it. The doctor advised him surgery and told him that it was the permanent solution to his condition. The doctor’s recommended Ali Sher a right ankle arthrodesis which is fixation of joint between two bones by surgery. This is done to relieve intractable pain in a joint which cannot be managed by pain medication.
Ali Sher’s financial condition does not allow him to go through such an expensive surgical procedure. His wife is the sole bread earner of his family with six people dependent on her earnings. It’s been years since Ali Sher has worked due to his condition. His wife works as a house maid and hardly earns PKR 7000 out of which PKR 4000 is their house rent. They hardly have enough money to feed their innocent little daughters.
A ray of hope presented itself when Ali Sher found out about the Transparent Hands. He has come to us for help and we have taken his case.
Please donate to Ali Sher so he can walk again and provide for his little daughters. It would mean the world to him!
