Muhammad Waqas's Story
19-year-old Waqas was involved in an unfortunate motorcycle accident in 2019, which resulted in a fracture of his right leg. For the internal fixation of his right femur, surgery was performed in which a dynamic compression plate (DCP) was applied. However, this surgery did not prove successful and only three months later, he had to have another surgery for the readjustment of the plate. Now, despite two surgeries already, Waqas’s injured leg has failed to heal. This time it has been decided that his DCP plate should be removed altogether and his femur should be fixed with the help of an intramedullary (IM) nail.
Waqas financial condition is keeping him from having this surgery, despite the constant pain resulting from the poorly inserted plate. His father works as a laborer at a brick kiln and is only paid 500 PKR/day, which comes up to an average of 12,000 PKR/month. This salary is solely responsible for all the expenses of this family of four.
“Without external help, it would be years before Waqas is able to have this operation, if ever. How can we possibly save anything significant from my salary? In fact, most months, we have to borrow from others to get through the last week.” – Waqas’s father, Muhammad Yousaf
