Muhammad Ashraf's Story
Muhammad Ashraf, 62 years old, has a long history of kidney disease which resulted in kidney failure in 2017. He spent his life-savings of around 600,000 PKR pursuing treatment for his kidneys but despite all efforts, his kidney function did not improve. He was then recommended regular dialysis because his blood wastes were reaching dangerous levels. Ashraf first started dialysis via an AV fistula on the arm but since his fistula wasn’t properly made, it got blocked soon and was closed within two months. To restart dialysis, he now requires a PTFE graft on the elbow.
Ashraf exhausted all the money he had saved during his 32 years of service as a teacher on his treatment and no longer has the resources to have this graft formed. All he has is a monthly pension of 36,000 PKR, all of which is set aside for the household expenditures of his family of nine members and the payback of a few loans he took.
“I had no savings left after my illness started but still had a world of responsibilities to fulfill. My daughter’s wedding took place recently and I was only able to arrange for it by taking loans from multiple friends. Now I have the added worry of paying them back. I know I should get my surgery done as soon as possible but I am under immense financial burden right now.” – Muhammad Ashraf
The longer Ashraf goes without dialysis, the more life-threatening his condition will get. He is in need of your urgent donations.
