Hamid Shafiq's Story
“Even after borrowing multiple loans from family members, I have not been able to afford the surgical treatment that my youngest child needs. His life has just begun and it hurts me to think that my finances don’t allow me to ensure his healthy future.” – Hamid’s father
14 month old Hamid Shafiq was born with Anorectal Malformation. His colostomy was carried out at neonatal age and extensive investigations including multiple ultrasounds and a distal loopogram were carried out subsequently. He now needs major reconstructive surgery to restore his anorectal function.
Hamid’s father has suffered losses in his business and is currently unemployed. He has three other children to support and is completely dependent on the loan borrowed from his relatives. The family only owns a small house in KPK. There are no other assets which could help in funding Hamid’s surgery.
Fortunately, they learned about Transparent Hands and requested a free surgical procedure.
Hamid’s anorectoplasty is scheduled to be carried out at Medicare hospital, Rawalpindi.

Hamid Shafiq's Story
Hamid Shafiq, 15 months old, was suffering from anorectal malformation (ARM) resulting in an absent back passage. His emergency colostomy was done at birth to make a temporary passage for stool. He was advised surgery to construct his back passage at the normal site. His surgery, posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP), was done at Medicare Hospital, Rawalpindi, on 15-01-20, by Dr Naeem Liaqat. He stayed for two days in the hospital with good post-operative recovery and was discharged with advice.
