Sumaira Bibi's Story
“I have a mountain of burden on me. I have four children to look after and protect. I have a job to go to and now I have to take care of my disease as well. It is a whole lot for just one person to handle and sometimes I feel like I cannot manage anything and am failing at everything.” – Sumaira Bibi
36-year-old Sumaira Bibi has had abnormal uterine bleeding for the past five years due to benign growths in her uterus known as fibroids. Multiple visits to local and private hospitals only got her prescriptions for temporary relief, whereas the only way to attain long term relief in her case is to have a hysterectomy surgery for the removal of the uterus. Unfortunately, Sumaira Bibi has so far been unable to find any help for this surgery.
Sumaira Bibi lives in a small rented house in Lahore with her 5 sons. She is a working mother and is solely financially responsible for her family. Her monthly salary comes up to about 16,000 PKR/month with which she pays 5000 PKR rent and spends the rest on household necessities like groceries and utilities.
We have happily registered Sumaira Bibi’s case and now need your help to get her long overdue surgery conducted. To help, please contribute whatever is possible to her surgery costs.

Her health has improved a great deal.
