Nasreen Iqbal's Story
Around 9 months ago, Nasreen, aged 42, was homebound on a motorcycle with her husband when she had a terrible accident. Her scarf got stuck in the vehicle’s wheel and resulted in a road crash. Her husband suffered minor scratches but Nasreen herself sustained heavy damage to her left leg. She was shifted to the emergency department of a nearby hospital whose staff treated the pain with medication but refused to provide proper fixation treatment to her leg because of her inability to pay.
Nasreen’s husband borrowed money from his friends so she could have her surgery at a private hospital. Just four months following the surgery, her pain resurfaced and when she visited the hospital again, her x-ray revealed that the bones in her leg are not united. She is actually presenting with a non-union of her left tibia and fibula.
“My husband and I cannot afford an operation a second time now. We are still paying off the loan we took for the previous one and it will probably be a few years before we have paid it off in full.” – Nasreen
On top of the debt that they have to pay off, this couple has 4 small children to look after on just a salary of 12,000 PKR that Nasreen’s husband earns each month as a food vendor.
