Saba Bibi's Story
“Our daughter is the light of our lives who is writhing in pain in front of our eyes but we are helpless. We have seen so many dreams for her but all of them seem to be shattering because of our increasing difficulties and poverty.” – Saba Bibi’s father
9 years old Saba was diagnosed with typhoid around one and a half years ago when she had pain in abdomen and a hole was made in her small intestine. She underwent Exploratory Laparotomy and her Ileostomy was made. Later on after the surgery, she experienced Septicaemia – blood poisoning caused by bacteria. This was treated with medicines and she recovered well.
Now that she had recovered from her previous treatments, the doctor has recommended her to undergo ileostomy reversal without which, this little girl will not be able to live a normal life like her siblings. Saba’s father is a poor man who cannot afford the expensive treatment of her daughter. He works in a printing press and hardly earns 15,000 PKR a month. This family struggles to survive in this meager income by living from hand to mouth. During one of the visits to a hospital for Saba’s treatment, her father learned about Transparent Hands and immediately contacted for help.

Saba Bibi's Story
Saba Bibi, 10 years old, had an ileostomy- a temporary opening for the stool passage- made after an emergency surgery for typhoid perforation. She was advised surgery to reverse this ileostomy. Her surgery was done at Medicare Hospital, Rawalpindi, on 25-10-19, by Dr Naeem Liaqat. The ileostomy was closed and intestinal continuity was restored once again. Saba recovered well during five days of hospital stay and was discharged in good health.
