Shakeela Bibi's Story
Shakeela Bibi, aged 32 years, started feeling unwell a few weeks ago and sought medical help for it. Suspecting deficiencies, her doctor advised blood work, including an HCV test and the tests detected hepatitis C in her blood. There is no previous history of hepatitis and since it has been caught in the early stages, a treatment plan can easily be implemented. The only issue is the cost of the treatment.
Shakeela Bibi lives with her husband and 5 children, all under the age of 12, on the outskirts of Lahore. Her husband is a vegetable vendor and Shakeela herself works as a housemaid. Collectively, they both earn not more than 17,000 PKR/month, all of which is spent on the basic day to day expenses.
“We can barely keep track of when the money comes in and when it is spent. I feel like as soon as my husband and I get paid, we run out of money because there is a whole long list of things to buy. Basic things like groceries and utilities. It is next to impossible to save anything for my treatment with 5 small children to raise.” – Shakeela Bibi
