Arosha Gull's Story
“I wake up petrified in the middle of night just to check my daughter if she is breathing. We all are living in a fear that Arosha may pass away anytime. It hurts us to see her like this. She is suffering because we face poverty. Please support us.” – Arosha’s Mother
Arosha Gull, 1.3-year-old baby, was born with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) – a combination of four congenital abnormalities; a ventricular septal defect (VSD), pulmonary valve stenosis, a misplaced aorta and a thickened right ventricular wall (right ventricular hypertrophy). Her parents found out about her condition only two months after she set foot into this world. They would see their baby girl become weaker by the day, breathless during the day and night and her colour would suddenly turn blue.
Lately, her condition has started to get worse and her father took her to a hospital immediately to get her treated. A doctor examined her and advised that she needed an open-heart surgery for total correction.
Arosha’s father works as a driver and hardly earns PKR 10,000 a month. Her father has knocked on every relative’s door asking for help but received none since the amount of her daughter’s surgery is beyond his reach. He has to feed his family of 4 as well. They survive on the bare minimum and live in a 2. Marla house which was given to them by his parents.

For this reason, she was admitted in University of Lahore Teaching hospital and her cardiac surgery was performed by Dr. Salman Ahmed Shah on 02.11.2020. Her TOF was repaired. Arosha stayed in the hospital for five days and was discharged in a stable condition. She is recovering well from her major surgery. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
