Pareesa Shahzad's Story
“Given our extremely low income, it is already very burdensome to support the household let alone cater to medical needs. I was very happy when I found out that TH would register my child’s case and help her get free surgery. I have faith that the surgery will go successfully and am thankful because this contribution really helped ease our burdens” – Pareesa Shahzad’s father
3-year-old Pareesa Shahzad was a patient of anorectal malformation. Her anus and rectum didn’t develop properly at birth. Pareesa was diagnosed with this disease when she was only at a neonatal age. Initially, she underwent a colostomy procedure at a local hospital. Following that, her ASARP surgery was carried out in which her back passage was properly reconstructed. Now she needs her final surgery to reverse her colostomy, so she can start using her stool passage normally. It is for this surgery that she has approached Transparent Hands.
Her father, who is a driver, cannot afford to pay for his daughter’s treatment. He earns only 25,000 PKR a month to support himself, and his family of 7 members. This income does not prove to be enough for their needs. Pareesa is just one small step away from a completely normal childhood but is only being held back by her tough financial situation.

Pareesa Shahzad's Story
Pareesa Shehzad, 3 years old, was diagnosed with anorectal malformation at the time of her birth. Her colostomy was done and later on, her back passage was created through PSARP surgery. After that, the surgeon recommended a colostomy reversal surgery for her. For this purpose, she was admitted in Maryam Memorial hospital and the procedure was performed by Dr. Naeem Liaqat on 20.10.2020. Pareesa’s colostomy reversal was done successfully and her bowel continuity was restored. She stayed in the hospital for four days and was discharged in a stable condition. Her post-operative recovery was satisfactory.
“My daughter has finally had her last surgery. We are very relieved as our little baby has already gone through two surgeries and countless visits to the hospital. She has recovered well from her colostomy reversal surgery and is in good health now.”- said Pareesa’s mother
