Ashra Bibi's Story
Ashra Bibi, 38 years old, has been suffering from swelling in her thyroid gland for almost 4 years now. She initially treated her condition with medicines but gradually, it has increased in size. She is now experiencing pain at the base of her neck and breathing difficulties. She is also unable to eat properly due to difficulty in swallowing.
Ashra Bibi went to her local hospital for treatment where she was diagnosed to have a huge multinodular goiter and advised her to undergo a subtotal thyroidectomy surgery for permanent relief. Unfortunately, she does not have the money to pay for her expensive surgery and the associated medical bills. Ashra’s husband earns around 19,000-20,000 PKR a month by working as a laborer. He struggles to meet just the basic day-to-day needs of his wife and son on this meager income and is not in the position to fund his wife’s surgery. Hence, Ashra has appealed to Transparent Hands for help.
“My only hope is financial assistance from Transparent Hands and for that, I appeal to all the donors to please help me.” – Ashra Bibi
