Parvin Bibi's Story
Parvin Bibi, age 60 years, has been experiencing persistent cyclical bleeding and lower abdominal pain for many years, caused by abnormal growths in the uterus known as fibroids. The doctors have advised a total abdominal hysterectomy, which is the surgical removal of the uterus. This surgery would bring her relief from adverse symptoms.
Parvin Bibi is the mother of 3 daughters and 3 sons. Her husband, a daily wage labourer, earns 12,000 PKR/month for the family. This small income causes immense financial difficulties in their day to day life, often resulting in huge compromises.
“Parvin has been ill for quite some time now but we are a helpless bunch of people. We can only afford to wait for help because with what I make, I cannot even seek a consultation with a good specialist for her. People of our financial status have to let go of huge important things in life. To give you another example, I can only afford to send three of my children to school. Sometimes, I can only afford one meal a day. Life is like that for us.” – Parvin Bibi’s husband
