Sami Ullah's Story
Sami Ullah, 2 years old, suffers from anorectal malformation- a congenital condition resulting in a malformed stool passage. In order to correct this, he requires a PSARP surgery as soon as possible after which, he will be able to perform his bowel function normally. Sami Ullah’s first surgery for his condition, a colostomy, was done at a local hospital a few weeks after he was born. In this surgery, a temporary passage for stool was made through his intestine. Since then, his PSARP surgery has been planned to construct his back passage at the normal site but his parents have been unable to find an appointment for him.
Sami Ullah’s father is a laborer who earns around 15,000 PKR a month and has 7 family members to support with this salary. This amount barely manages to get the family through the month. Owing to these financial constraints, he has not been able to get his son treated on his own.
“We thought he might never be able to live a healthy life so we were overjoyed to find out that our son can actually be treated with just a simple operation. When we decided to move forward with the operation, we were shocked at the demands of hospitals. I don’t have that kind of money. I never have.” – Sami Ullah’s father

Sami Ullah's Story
Samiullah, 1.9 years old, had an absent back passage. He was diagnosed with anorectal malformation. He was advised to get a posterior sagittal anorectoplasty surgery (a technique that surgically creates the child's back passage within the sphincter muscle). His surgery was performed by Dr. Naeem Liaqat on 21-07-20 at Mariam Memorial Hospital. He remained admitted in the hospital for two days, during which he recovered well and was discharged in a stable condition. Present day, Samiullah has resumed a normal life, just like other kids his age.
