Asif Ali's Story
“I was overwhelmed by how quickly my first surgery was funded by donors. It gave me hope that there are people in this world willing to help me. I hope they continue doing so, so that I can have my normal, active life back once again.”– Asif Ali
Around 11 months ago, 42-year-old Asif Ali was crossing the road when he was hit by a negligent motorcyclist. The accident resulted in a fractured bone in his leg. Bystanders summoned an ambulance and he was immediately transported to the emergency room of the nearest hospital. The doctors there tried to fix his bone but it was heavily damaged and did not heal properly. Consequently, he progressed to nonunion of his right tibia and fibula. To heal his bone, he required fixation surgery- an ilizarov application- which was conducted through Transparent Hands in February 2020. Now, in the progress of healing, Asif requires another orthopedic surgery- a corticotomy and bone transport.
Before his accident, Asif worked as a security guard and earned 18,000 PKR a month. 5000 PKR were spent on renting a small house in Gujranwala, where he lives with his wife and 2 school-going children. The rest covered all the monthly expenses, including school fees. Post-accident, the family has no earning hand and cannot meet the expenses of even their basic necessities.
Asif’s first surgery was done with your help. He hopes that you can support him this time as well so he can get back on his feet soon.

Asif Ali's Story
42-year-old Asif Ali met with a roadside accident in which he broke his right leg. He was immediately rushed to the nearest local hospital where he got treated. However, post-treatment, his bone did not unite and he was unable to bear weight on it after his surgery at the local hospital. He was diagnosed as a case of nonunion right tibia & fibula and was advised surgery for this condition. In the 1st stage, the Ilizarov fixator was applied to fix his leg bones and correct the position 2 months ago. Now in the 2nd stage, he needed corticotomy and bone transport which were done on 19-05-20, by Dr. Zahid Siddique, in Akram Medical Complex. He remained admitted for 2 days with good post-op recovery and was discharged.
