Muhammad Bilal's Story
Muhammad Bilal, 3 years old, suffers from anorectal malformation- a congenital condition resulting in a malformed stool passage. In order to correct this, he requires a PSARP surgery as soon as possible after which, he will be able to perform his bowel function normally.
Bilal’s first surgery for his condition- a colostomy- was done at a local hospital a few weeks after he was born. In this surgery, a temporary passage for stool was made through his intestine. Since then, his PSARP surgery has been planned to construct his back passage at the normal site but has been continually postponed.
“Bilal is my youngest child and only son. Ever since he was born, he has been sick. As an infant, he wouldn’t feed and just kept on vomiting. It was then that we discovered his congenital defect. I worry so much about his future. On the one hand, I am happy that there are ways to treat his condition but on the other, I am afraid I might never be able to afford the surgery that could grant him a normal life.”– Bilal’s father, Haider Ali
Bilal’s father, Haider Ali, is a door to door cloth seller, who earns around 15,000 PKR a month. He has 5 family members to support with this salary. Living in the expensive city of Lahore, this amount barely manages to get the family through the month. Owing to these financial constraints, Haider Ali has not been able to get his son’s treatment conducted on his own. This is why he has approached Transparent Hands for help.
With the help of your donations, we can get his PSARP surgery conducted.
Bilal deserves a chance at a normal life. Please support him!
