Shamsa Saleem's Story
“I gave birth to 3 sons and a daughter and see what they did to me? Once my children got married, they turned their backs on me. They’ve everything for themselves but nothing for their old mother. My husband has died leaving me behind to face my struggles alone. I sometimes wonder why God hasn’t taken me away with him? I lay down here all day long staring at the wall thinking about if I’ve done anything wrong that my children left me here? Please pray that I go back to my home. I don’t want to live here, I want to die in my own home among my children and grandchildren.” – Shamsa Saleem during a medical camp at Old Age Home
70 years old Shamsa Saleem’s heartbreaking story is the story of thousands of elderly parents abandoned by their children. She has been living in an old age home for 5 months. Shamsa hasn’t yet accepted that she has to spend the rest of her life here. Every day, she asks several times if anyone has came to receive her? Little does she know that this old age home is her permanent home now.
This poor mother’s pain and agony don’t end here. She has been suffering from a painful lump in her upper abdomen that is increasing in size with each passing day. It might turn into a tumor if not treated on time. The care and money she receives from Old Age Home are not enough to bear the cost of her treatment. When Transparent Hands arranged a medical camp in Old Age Home, she was diagnosed as a case of Lipoma and the doctor immediately registered her for excision of the lump.
