Alisha Imran's Story
Alisha Imran, 6 years old, is suffering from a left pelvic ureteric junction obstruction (PUJ obstruction). In this condition, the urine is not able to easily flow into the bladder because of a narrowing of the junction leading to the bladder. The symptoms include flank and back pain, vomiting and frequent urinary tract infections. To find relief, Alisha requires a left pyeloplasty- a corrective surgery to relieve the obstruction and decompress the kidney.
“My daughter has been through so much ever since she was born. A surgery was conducted on her the very day she was born. In the following years, she had to be hospitalized many times. She is not even 6 and now she is facing kidney problems. I am so worried about her future. Every mother envisions a safe healthy life for her children. I want the same for Alisha. I just hope that this is the last health issue she ever faces.” – Alisha’s mother.
In the past few years, Alisha has faced several health issues like anorectal malformation and a non-functional right kidney. Her ASARP surgery and colostomy closure were very recently carried out through the support of donors at Transparent Hands. Now once again, Alisha requires your urgent help. Her father, a daily wager, has 6 family members to support on an income of 12,000 PKR and cannot afford the expenses of her surgery.
Alisha’s pyeloplasty needs to be carried out at the earliest because her right kidney is already non-functional and her left kidney is under a lot of stress because of the obstruction.
You have come to Alisha’s aid several times before. Please help her once again so she can be healthy and out of danger.
