Muhammad Zubair's Story
Muhammad Zuhair is a four years old kid, who hails from the district Mardan of K.P.K province. Zuhair’s life is already wrapped in shadows of misery and misfortune. His father was detained for illegal entry into the country, and the due process that involved bailing him out consumed a lot of the family’s financial assets. Meanwhile, all of this happened when everyone knew that Zuhair will need open-heart surgery in the future. You see, Zuhair suffers from TOF, a condition that demands open heart surgery for treatment.
TOF is not one heart defect. Rather, it is a combination of four cardiac defects. This combination damages the very structure of the human heart, affecting its pumping function severely. Symptoms of the disease include shortness of breath as well as bluish discoloration of the skin. In Zuhair’s case, this congenital birth defect had its own manifestations as the kid’s health deteriorated with every passing day. And now when it is time Zuhair MUST get open-heart surgery, the family is under a debt burden.
“We (say Zuhair’s family) have eight lacs to payback in debt while our total monthly income is eight thousand. The five-membered family lives in a 4-marla house. Managing funds for Zuhair’s TOF treatment seemed an insurmountable task right now unless someone is willing to help us”
Do you know who Zuhair’s parents are talking about? YOU. You see, we have decided to launch a fundraising campaign for Muhammad Zuhair at the Transparent Hands. But it is something that we cannot do on our own. We need more and more of you to chip in and make Zuhair’s open-heart surgery eventually possible. Spread the word as much as you can as well. Zuhair should have a chance to grow up and see the fascinations of the world for himself. And to give him that chance, all that you have to do is DONATE FOR ZUHAIR’S OPEN HEART SURGERY NOW!

Muhammad Zubair's Story
Muhammad Zuhair, four years old, was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). The doctor recommended an open heart surgery for TOF repair. For this purpose, Zuhair was admitted in University of Lahore Teaching hospital and the surgery was performed by Dr. Salman Ahmed Shah on 26.11.2020. He stayed in the hospital for five days and was discharged in a stable condition. Zuhair is well on his way to a complete recovery. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
“Zuhair is such an active child. He is able to play around like he always wanted to since he had the surgery. Exertion does not exhaust him now. The surgery was instrumental in improvement of his health.”- Zuhair’s mother
