Muhammad Suleman's Story
“We had to wait several years for his major surgery. Before that, my son lived with an open colostomy because it was necessary. But now, after a lot of struggle, his condition has finally been corrected and he no longer requires the colostomy. I want to help him get it closed as soon as possible so my little boy can feel just like everyone else- completely normal”- Muhammad Suleman’s mother.
Muhammad Suleman, 8 years old, was born with anorectal malformation due to which, a colostomy was performed on him at birth. A few years following the colostomy, his ASARP surgery was performed in which his back passage was constructed at the normal site. Now, in order to completely restore normal bowel function, Suleman requires a colostomy closure surgery- his final step to recovery.
Currently, an open colostomy presents issues for Suleman. His abdomen is often irritated due to the attached colostomy bag. He is also unable to attend school because of it and is missing out on schoolwork. Since an open colostomy is no longer needed, his family wants to get his closure done at the earliest. Unfortunately, financial constraints are holding them back.
Suleman’s father, Muhammad Nazir, earns just around 15,000 PKR a month. He has to support the expenditures of 7 children and his wife entirely on his own. He does not own a house and lives with his family in a small rented space that costs him 5000 PKR a month. The rest of his pay-check covers the living and education expenses of his children with extreme difficulty. Unable to raise the money for his son’s final surgery, Muhammad Nazir has contacted Transparent Hands for help.
Their only hope for their child’s normal life is your donations.

Muhammad Suleman's Story
Muhammad Suleman, 09 years old, had his ileostomy (a temporary opening for the passage of stool) made after his emergency surgery for typhoid perforation. He was advised surgery to reverse this ileostomy. His surgery was done in Lahore Care Hospital, on 20-04-20, by Dr Sajid Iqbal. His ileostomy was closed and intestinal continuity was restored once again. He recovered well in five days of his hospital stay and was discharged in good health.
