Amir Humza's Story
Amir Humza is a 6-year-old boy from Mardan who needs help financing his corrective heart surgery for tetralogy of fallot- a congenital heart condition.
“We frequented many government hospitals, but with a family of 10 and a really tight budget we cannot afford the treatments required to help my son. It breaks my heart that, I, being his father, cannot relieve my son from his struggle with his condition.”– Shareef Gull, Amir Humza’s Father
Humza’s rare heart condition makes everyday life challenging for him. Shortness of breath, high fever, and occasional fainting are some of the symptoms he faces on a daily basis. This means that unlike a normal kid of his age, Humza is not allowed to play for extended periods of time as overexertion could trigger his symptoms.
The doctors have assured Shareef and his wife that Humza’s condition is curable. An expensive surgery is required, however. Shareef is the sole provider for his whole family, which includes himself, his wife, his 5 children, and his own parents. He works as a daily wager, barely earning 12,000 PKR per month. His entire family subsists on this salary with extreme difficulty. Apart from this stream of income, they own no other valuables and stay in a small house provided to them by their landlord. Unable to arrange the finances himself, Shareef approached Transparent Hands for help with his surgery. He wishes to see his son healthy as soon as possible.
Giving Humza a happy healthy life is now up to your kind donations.
