Shamim Bilal's Story
“I tried to delay the operation for as long as I could and prayed for my condition to get better on its own. Unfortunately it has only gotten worse, to the point that I cannot go to the bathroom without support.” – Shamim
Shamim Bilal, 36 years old, started suffering from hip joint problems around 2 years ago. The pain in her right hip gradually increased, stiffening her lower back and hip muscles. At first, despite frequent visits to hospitals, doctors weren’t able to determine the cause of her problem. Eventually, she was known to suffer from osteoarthritis of the right hip joint and recommended to have a total hip replacement, however, she decided to manage her condition with painkillers due to the high cost of the operation. This course of action is proving ineffective now because Shamim’s pain has increased in intensity and she now experiences mobility issues. She cannot improve without a right total hip replacement.
Shamim and her husband, Bilal Ashraf, cannot afford the expenses of her operation. Bilal earns around 10,000 PKR a month by working as a laborer and can hardly meet the basic day-to-day needs of his wife and 2 children with this income. Unable to secure a free appointment at a local hospital or help from relatives, Shamim has now requested Transparent Hands to help her.
Shamim’s operation can be successfully conducted with your financial assistance. To help her walk normally again, please donate to her today.
