Amna Murtaza's Story

13-year-old Amna Murtaza has had a missing right leg since birth. When she was 7 years old, she was fitted with a prosthetic right leg. Even though her parents invested a lot of their savings into the procedure, it was so poorly done that the artificial leg had to be removed subsequently. Now, without any resources left for another attempt, Amna’s parents have requested Transparent Hands to help her out.

“We have tried our best to help Amna lead as normal a life as possible. The moment she was born, we started saving for her treatment so it was really heartbreaking when her treatment failed.” – Amna’s mother

Amna and her four siblings live in a modest house in Sialkot with their parents as part of a joint family system. Two other families share the same house. Her father, working in a factory, earns 25,000 PKR/month. Part of his salary is spent on the joint expenditures of his household and the rest on all the expenses of his own family including food, clothes, educational fees, and other basic necessities.

Since Amna’s family is not financially capable of taking care of her medical expenses right now, we are working to have her procedure conducted for free and we would like to request your support. Please consider donating to Amna.

Amna Murtaza's Story

Amna Murtza, 13 years old, had an absent right leg below her knee level. This caused her to be dependent on other people which became an inconvenience for her as well as her family. On consultation with a physician, she was recommended a below knee artificial leg which was arranged for her and installed about six years ago. This leg did not work properly. The family recently consulted the Transparent Hands team and through their support, Amna’s recommended prosthesis was arranged by HOPE Rehabilitation Center. It was fixed by Dr. Khalid on 10.09.2020. Amna is delighted to be able to walk on her own.
