Asia Babar's Story
Asia Babar, 7 years of age, was born with anorectal malformation- a congenital condition resulting in a malformed stool passage. At birth, her doctor performed a colostomy on her to make a temporary passage for stool. 5 years later, corrective surgery known as posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP) was performed on her in which her intestinal continuity was restored. She was scheduled for a third and final surgery soon after, in which her colostomy was to be closed. But despite repeated visits for the past 2 years, the hospital didn’t follow through with the appointment.
Asia’s father is unable to have her surgery conducted at a private hospital because the costs are too high. He has a total of 6 children that he has to support on a daily wager’s salary of 10,000 PKR a month. He is worried about her daughter because her schooling has been on hold for almost 5 years now. To seek help, he approached Transparent Hands.
“She sees all her siblings go to school, do homework, and have fun in the playground. She is unable to join in because she fears that other children won’t accept her because of her condition. We all try to be supportive but on the inside, it breaks my heart to see my little daughter upset.” – Asia’s father.
He hopes that with your help, his daughter can have her final surgery and recover completely from her congenital condition.
