Anamta Fatima's Story
2-year-old Anamta Fatima has been diagnosed with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), a defect in which the fetal connection between two main blood vessels of the heart fails to close up after birth. This reduces the efficiency of the circulation. Anamta has remained frequently sick since birth because of this defect and suffers from a rapid breathing rate, coughing, frequent vomiting, low appetite and lethargy.
Anamta’s parents sought a consultation when she was four months old because she was experiencing difficulty breathing, but only temporary fixes like nebulization and medication were given to her. She was then referred to another hospital where the specialist informed her parents that she requires a PDA device closure. Since the procedure is proving really expensive for her parents, they have requested Transparent Hands to assist them.
Anamta’s father barely earns 15,000 PKR/month as a private employee. Along with his daughter and wife, he also has to support his own parents, who live with him. He has no money to spare for his daughter’s procedure, and needs our help at the earliest.
“We have taken so many hospital rounds just to have her nebulized because her breathing is so erratic. It is very stressful, seeing your only child being so sick all the time. I request everyone to send whatever they can spare her way so my child can finally breathe right.” – Anamta’s father
