Shamim Akhtar's Story

“I feel a shooting pain every time I even try to stand up now, so I am forced to sit or lie down all day. I am used to moving around so it feels debilitating to be in this situation.” – Shamim Akhtar

Shamim Akhtar, aged 56 years, slipped and had an accident around 1.5 years ago. In this unfortunate incident, her left femur sustained a fracture. She was rushed to a hospital where she underwent an operation for femur neck fixation. The costs of this operation were well beyond her means but a generous neighbor in her village sponsored her.

The fixation made use of an implant that, for quite a while, presented no problems. Recently, however, Shamim has started feeling pain in her left hip and leg. In the past few months, the intensity of this pain has grown unbearable and doctors have advised her to have her implant removed. This would require another surgery that Shamim requires urgent help with. The only breadwinner in her family is her husband, who works at a snooker club and earns 15,000-16,000 PKR/month. Her two sons have been through college but have been unable to secure a job.

Shamim’s financial circumstances do not allow her to seek treatment on her own.

Your donations can ease her difficulty greatly.
