Seerat Fatima's Story
4-year-old Seerat Fatima was diagnosed with rectovestibular fistula (RVF) at the time of her birth. It is one of the most common kinds of anorectal malformations in females. For temporary relief from this condition, doctors in a government hospital operated and made a colostomy stoma on her when she was only 6-days-old. They recommended another surgery called Anterior Sagittal Anorectoplasty (ASARP) to make her back passage at the usual site.
Since that time, Seerat and her parents have visited multiple hospitals but did not get any appointment. Her father is a labourer and earns PKR 25,000 per month. They are seven family members in total and live in a joint family system. There is no other source of income for them, hence treatment in a private medical facility is completely out of question.
“I have lost count of the number of times I have visited hospitals. No one is ready to help us. We hope that your organization will not send us back like everyone else”- Seerat’s mother.
They have contacted our organization to help them in this regard and we have registered their case with us.
