Raja Abdul-Waris Waqar's Story

Raja Abdul-Waris, 1.5 years old, is suffering from a hydrocele (swelling in the scrotum due to fluid collection) which has resulted from a right inguinal hernia. He started developing this swelling in the right scrotal region a few months ago. His parents were asked by doctors to have his herniotomy done but they did not have the resources for the surgery. After the diagnosis, they tried multiple free medical institutions but to no avail. His parents have now approached Transparent Hands for help with his surgery.

Raja Abdul-Waris’s father is a security guard at a school and is paid 22,000 PKR a month. His mother is a homemaker who looks after the household. They have five small children to support on their restricted income and every month, it proves insufficient to meet their basic needs. Their rent alone costs 12,000 PKR and doesn’t leave much for other expenditures.

“I have a lot of accumulated debt because every month, I have to borrow money from some friend or relative just to get through the month. My child has been suffering for months now and I, as a father, still haven’t been able to fulfill the basic duty of getting him treated. Where do I go? There is no place that doesn’t demand a huge sum of money for his treatment.” – Raja Abdul-Waris’s father

To help a small child find relief from constant pain, please consider donating to him today so we can arrange for his surgery.
