Khalid Azam's Story
Around a month ago, Khalid Azam (aged 18) was going about his usual chores at his job. As a caretaker at an old-age home, his morning started with cleaning out the residents’ rooms. An unexpected pain shot up his stomach that he could not account for.
“It felt like a sharp tearing pain. It was really intense!”
He visited his local clinic and after a thorough check-up, the doctor advised some tests, which confirmed that Khalid needs a surgery- a hernioplasty for a Right Inguinal Hernia.
A timely diagnosis did not solve all his worries, though. Earning hardly 15,000 PKR a month, the surgery expenses are not within his means.
“I felt completely healthy the day before and suddenly, a surgery is sprung on me. I earn very little and my household subsists on my earning. My father cannot work. My siblings are at school. How will I run the house and find the money for this procedure?”
All Khalid’s family have to their name is a small dwelling in their village. Selling that would leave the 6 members homeless.
Khalid has approached Transparent Hands with hopes of assistance. Any contributions, big or small, can help him in this dire situation.
He wishes to be healthy and together, we can get him there!
