Farhad Ali's Story
“Over 56 years, I believed I had already had my fair share of pain. In this long life, I believed that I had seen all kinds of pains. I considered my threshold for pain to be higher than usual but this pain… oh lord! This pain is like no other. It is blinding. It swept away the ground beneath my feet.” -Farhad Ali
56 years old, Farhad Ali had been eking his way through his life. Until one day, he felt a wave of searing pain on the left side of his chest. At first, he ignored it and continued his daily work. After some time, the pain became unbearable and disrupted Farhad Ali’s cycle of breath.
Finally, Farhad Ali visited a cardiologist who ran ECG and several other medical tests. Seeing the results, the doctors immediately advised Farhad Ali to undergo Coronary Angiography and PCI as soon as possible. Coronary angiography is a procedure that uses contrast dye, usually containing iodine, and x-ray pictures to detect blockages in the coronary arteries that are caused by plaque buildup. Whereas PCI is used to treat the detected arteries that have been blocked by plaque.
Farhad Ali cannot afford the hefty cost of this procedure. Therefore, we urge you to please donate to Farhad Ali for his cardiac procedures. He works at a small departmental store in his locality. Despite working 14 hours a day, he is unable to make more than 5 thousand PKR per month. With a family of 7 members dependent on him, he cannot even think of spending thousands on treatment, even if it is a lifesaving one.
After a lot of struggle, Farhad Ali has registered his case with Transparent Hands. We have assured him that you all will help him in his cardiac procedures. Your little financial help goes a long way. So, please donate to Farhad Ali for his cardiac procedures and help us put a man out of his misery.

Farhad Ali's Story
56-year-old Farhad Ali was diagnosed with ischemic heart disease (IHD), coronary artery disease (CAD) after a heart attack. He was advised an angiography for assessment of the condition of blood vessels of his heart. Farhad was admitted in Muhammad Sardar Khan Memorial hospital and the procedure was performed by Dr. Umar Ibrahim on 19.10.2020. He was discharged the same day in a stable condition. His angiography report revealed that he has triple vessel coronary artery disease. He was referred to the cardiac surgeon who has advised open heart surgery (CABG) for his further treatment.
“The doctor said that this diagnostic procedure was essential to decipher the condition of the blood vessels in my heart. I would never have found out what was wrong with me if I were to pay for the procedure through my own pocket.”- Farhad Ali
