Sakhla Tawas's Story

Sakhla Tawas, 8 years old, is suffering from chronic tonsillitis, a condition in which the tonsils in the throat get infected and inflamed repeatedly. Initially, she only presented with a slight burning in the throat, but with the passage of time, she started to experience repeated attacks of fever, increased pain in the throat, and is having difficulty in swallowing food. Her parents took her to a pediatrician who recommended her to undergo surgical removal of the tonsils, or a tonsillectomy, as a permanent solution. Without surgery, her symptoms will keep on resurfacing. 

Sakhla’s family is not well-off and is unable to afford her surgery. Her father, a rickshaw driver by profession, works and earns for all 9 members of her household. His fares come up to about 12,000 PKR/month. With just this meager amount, he has to pay off the loan he took for his rickshaw in monthly installments, as well as feed his entire family.

“My wife, children and my parents are all dependent on me. Just the basic expenses of my family consume almost all my salary. On top of that, there are loan installments, my mother’s heart medication, utility bills, school fees. I can barely manage all of it.” – Sakhla’s father

If Sakhla’s family is unable to manage the cost of her surgery, we can step up and help. Even a small contribution from each of us can help her have her surgery very soon!

Her surgery was done on 14-09-2020 by Dr. Muuddasir at Ahmad Medical Complex, Mardan. She remained admitted in the hospital for three days after her surgery and was discharged in a stable condition. Sakhla Bibi has returned back to her normal life, just like other girls and boys her age.
