Sehrish Bibi's Story
“I cannot relax or lie down despite the nauseating pain I am always in. With a dozen people in the same small house, I don’t really have a lot of room to myself. And there are a thousand chores I have to take care of. I have just been increasing my intake of painkillers but even that isn’t really helping at this point. I just feel miserable.”– Sehrish Bibi
30-year-old Sehrish Bibi has been suffering from pain in her right hypochondriac area along with abdominal distention, stretch, and vomiting for the past one and half years. She has so far just been taking medication for pain management but her symptoms have grown much worse in the last few months. Her diagnosis is cholelithiasis (gallstones) and for permanent relief, the doctors have advised surgery to remove the gallbladder.
Sehrish lives in a joint family system with her husband and 3 children along with her parents-in-law and brothers-in-law. Her husband is a car mechanic by profession and makes a monthly income of 25,000 PKR/month. He is fully financially responsible for his wife and children and also partially for his parents and siblings. Accommodating the expenses of 12 people in a small salary is difficult as it is. The added expenses of Sehrish’s operation are not possible for him to bear and he has asked for help from Transparent Hands.
The only way Sehrish can have her operation is if she receives enough donations from all of us. To play your part, please donate today.
