Muhammad Tariq's Story
Muhammad Tariq, 50 years old, had a road accident 4 years ago on his way back home from work. He was taken to a nearby hospital where his injuries were assessed. The doctor informed him that he has sustained damage to his spine during the accident and requires decompression surgery. The proposed cost of the surgery was too high for Tariq so he decided to go about his normal life while treating symptoms with medication. But the medicines did not work for long and he started experiencing leg and back pain as well as weakness of the lower body.
Now, Tariq has had to quit work altogether because of his continued illness and deteriorating condition. Before the accident, he worked as a tailor and earned 12,000 PKR for his family of 5. This amount barely covered his family’s expenses but it still kept food on the table. Now, he has even lost that and he, his wife, 2 daughters and one small son are all depending on relatives to get by.
The only way out of this condition is to have neurosurgery at the earliest. For this purpose, Tariq has reached out to Transparent Hands for help.
“Please help me get back on my feet. I am the sole breadwinner in my family and I cannot bear to see my wife and children going hungry. I vowed to protect them and I need to get my strength back for that.” – Muhammad Tariq
Tariq deserves to return to his former healthy and active self and you can help him get there by donating for his surgery as soon as possible.
