Ayesha Hameed's Story

3-year-old Ayesha Hameed is suffering from a complex congenital heart condition known as dextrocardia. A normal human heart points towards the left side of the chest. A person with this rare defect has a heart that points towards the right. This reverse orientation interferes with the heart function and causes symptoms like fatigue, breathlessness, bluish pale skin, and poor growth in children. Ayesha also has a partial atrioventricular canal (PAVC) defect which further hinders proper circulation, causing breathing problems at the slightest exertion. 

Ayesha was diagnosed with this disease only 6 months after her birth. Her family took her to the hospital because she had a consistent fever and kept vomiting. It was then that her ECHO test was carried out and her heart defect was discovered. The doctor communicated to Ayesha’s parents that her rare condition can improve only through open-heart surgery, or in medical terms, an atrial switch surgery. Due to a lack of reference, however, the local hospital which diagnosed her refused to provide her with free treatment and demanded a high cost for the procedure that her parents could not afford. Ayesha’s father is a teacher who earns 20,000 PKR/month out of which 6000 PKR alone is spent on rent. He meets his family’s expenses with the rest.

“We are so worried for Ayesha. Her heart is not right the doctor tells us and we can tell too, just by looking at her. She is always ill. An uncle in my family recently passed away because of a heart attack and ever since then, we have just been even more stressed knowing that our daughter has a heart condition and something could happen to her, God forbid.” – Ayesha’s father
