Dara Lal's Story
“As a family, we are all honest hardworking people, but we don’t have much to show for it at the end of the day. My husband has worked hard all his life to take care of us and has sacrificed his own needs to meet ours, even while he was getting sick.” – Dara Lal’s wife
For the past three years, 56-year-old Dara Lal has experienced burning micturition, intermittent retention of urine as well as lower abdominal pain. The cause of his symptoms has been determined to be an enlarged prostate. TURP surgery (transurethral resection of the prostate) and a urethrocystoscopy have been recommended to him but Dara Lal cannot afford these and has asked Transparent Hands for help with them.
Dara Lal is too ill to work himself and instead has let his land out to a landlord for a monthly payment of 8000 PKR. His wife earns 4000 PKR/month by working in a cotton field and his eldest son earns around 2000 PKR monthly working part-time at a mechanic’s shop. The total earnings of Dara Lal and his family come up to about 14,000 PKR each month in which they accommodate the expenses of 7 people.
To assist Dara Lal with his medical costs, we need your support. Please help us cover the expenses of his surgery by donating to him today.
