Saima Parvin's Story
Saima Parvin, 32 years of age, has been suffering from a lot of pain in the right hypochondriac area along with vomiting and abdominal stretch for the past year. After visiting a doctor, she was diagnosed with cholelithiasis – commonly known as stones in the gallbladder. The doctors advised her to get a lap. cholecystectomy – a surgery in which the gallbladder is removed. The doctor recommended her to get the surgery as soon as possible to gain permanent relief from the pain.
For the last two months her symptoms have gotten worse. Not having the financial means to pay for the surgery herself, Saima Parvin visited many doctors asking them to operate on her free of cost but was denied help every time. Luckily, she found out about Transparent Hands and the fact that they assist people in getting free surgeries and medical procedures.
“I have been unable to attend to my little children for the past two months because I am in constant pain. I am unable to cook for them because when I’m in pain it feels like someone is stabbing knives in my stomach. The father of my children is working day and night in a foreign country to be able to provide for us. I just pray for someone to help me get out of this misery.” – Saima Parvin
She got married five years ago and has two sons, aged 2 years and 4 years. Their life took a bad turn last year when she had sold all her jewellery so that her husband moved to Dubai and earned for the family. But COVID-19 changed everything for them. Her husband is stuck in Dubai with a job that is unstable and only pays PKR 12000 a month.
Saima Parvin being a graduate herself and saving grace for the family managed to earn some money by giving tuitions to school going children living in her neighbourhood. Together, they managed to earn PKR 14000 a month which hardly covered their expenses since their monthly house rent is PKR 3000. For the past couple of months Saima’s symptoms have gotten worse; she has been unable to look after her 2 and 4-year-old children. They have gone days without having a proper meal.
