Shehnaz Yaqoob's Story

Shehnaz Yaqoob, 46 years old, has been suffering from pain in her right hypochondriac area along with vomiting and abdominal stretch for the last 12 years. She has been diagnosed with cholelithiasis (stones in the gallbladder) and doctors have advised her surgery to remove the gallbladder for permanent relief. Shehnaz’s symptoms have gotten much worse but despite visits to several doctors for free surgery, she received no response. On her own, it is impossible for her to pay for the surgery.

Shehnaz’s husband works as a laborer and gets paid around 500 PKR a day. On average, he earns 12,000-15,000 PKR a month. With four children to support, utility bills and other monthly household expenditures, it is very difficult for him to make ends meet. Shehnaz and her husband have not yet managed to save up enough to get her operation done and have hence approached Transparent Hands in the hope that her surgery can be conducted with your help.

Your donations to Shehnaz can help her find relief from constant pain. Every single contribution can make a difference!

She was admitted in Lahore Care hospital and her surgery was performed by Dr. Ahmad Fawad on 02.10.2020. She stayed in the hospital for three days and was discharged in a stable condition.
