Khadija Baksh's Story
“My brother and I work hard. I am a driver and stay on duty for almost 12 hours. My brother is a helper at a shop and has long hours too. But still, at the end of the day, we only earn a pittance. We are both married so we are not only responsible for our Ama (mother) and younger siblings but our children and wives as well. We can barely afford to feed all of them. So we need all the assistance we can get for our mother’s treatment” – Khadija’s eldest son
60-year-old Khadija Baksh has been suffering from kidney pain for the past year. A CT scan and an ultrasound have both shown that she has stones in her left kidney, which are causing the pain. Her doctor has recommended her to have a left ureteroscopy and DJ stenting as early as possible because she has a history of kidney problems. Around a decade ago as well, she had developed stones in both her kidneys which were surgically removed.
Since Khadija cannot afford the operation, she has been relying on medicines ever since her pain started but they are not improving her condition in any way. Khadija lives in a small village on the outskirts of Lahore with 4 of her children. Two of her eldest sons work and collectively earn 25,000 PKR/month. Since they bear all the financial responsibility of the household and cannot accommodate the medical costs of Khadija’s surgery, they have asked Transparent Hands to help them.
