Maryam Bibi's Story
12-year-old Maryam Bibi started experiencing acute pain on the right side of her abdomen which has been diagnosed as appendicitis. The doctors at her local hospital recommended an operation- an appendectomy- to remove the appendix as soon as possible. However, even with a reference, her mother has not been able to get an urgent appointment there. Maryam has been given a waiting time of 5 days. Since her infection has progressed quite far, if she waits that long, her appendix could rupture and cause a far more serious and life-threatening infection in her body.
Maryam’s father passed away three years ago. Since then, her mother is the sole breadwinner for her and her 2 brothers. Working as a housemaid, she manages to earn around 13,000 PKR a month. This is barely enough to meet the family’s basic requirements each month. Hence, having Maryam’s surgery at a private hospital is too expensive and not an option for them. In desperate need of urgent help, Maryam’s mother has contacted Transparent Hands.
“I have tried my best to look out for my children on my own for the past three years, ever since my husband passed away. I am a strong woman and have managed everything well so far. However, now I am in urgent need of help. I cannot get my daughter’s surgery done alone because even with two shifts a day, I won’t manage to earn enough. But I know there are kind people out there who will help my daughter before it is too late.”– Maryam’s mother
With your timely help, Maryam’s appendectomy can be conducted at the earliest and her life can be out of danger.
