Sakeena Bano's Story
“I’ve never seen a lady as strong as my mother. She is the backbone of our family. Even with her heart disease, she is working to feed my old father and my mentally unstable brothers. But now, I feel like her body is giving up with each passing day. She is no longer that strong woman I knew. Just a few months back we were talking and laughing together and now, we all are watching her helplessly, slipping away from us. Doctors said she may not live longer if she doesn’t undergo treatment. Please do something for my mother.” – Sakeena’s elder daughter
Sakeena Bano is a 59 years old hardworking lady who is working hard even in this age to feed her family. She has 6 children; 2 of them are mentally unstable. Sakeena is not only taking care of her children but also her sick husband who is not able to work. Around 3 years ago, Sakeena was diagnosed with Ischemic Heart Disease. The doctor gave her medicines which provided her relief for some time. A few months back, she felt severe chest pain and ended up in hospital again. This time, the doctor has strictly told her to undergo angiography as soon as possible as her heart condition is not stable and anything worse could happen to her.
Sakeena’s family cannot afford to pay for her angiography procedure. Sakeena is the sole earner of the family. She earns a meager income by selling milk from 2 buffaloes that they own. Her children insisted her to sell her animals for her treatment but without them, this family will starve. Luckily, Sakeena came across Transparent Hands through a medical camp in Chakwal where she was registered immediately. This mother is now looking forward to her procedure after which, doctor will decide her surgical treatment.
Helpless and poverty-stricken, this needy mother is appealing for your help
Sakeena doesn’t deserve to die just because of her poor financial background. Please donate for her angiography before the time runs out. Donate and save her life!
