Sumbal Bibi's Story

24-year-old Sumbal Bibi started suffering from osteoarthritis for the last 2 years. Because of this condition, the pain in her left hip gradually increased, stiffening her lower back and hip muscles. Her brother checked her into a local hospital in Mardan but the treatment administered to her isn’t effective any longer. Sumbal’s pain has persisted for two years and she now experiences mobility issues. For complete improvement, she requires orthopedic surgery- a total hip replacement.

“She keeps silent about her problems. We can tell that walking is painful for her by the way she moves but she tries not to complain. Our father is already sick so she doesn’t want to add to our burdens. We desperately want to help but the hospitals we approached proposed costs upward of 300,000 PKR, which we cannot possibly save on our limited incomes.” Sumbal’s brother

Sumbal has 8 siblings, one of whom is married and lives separately. Her father cannot work because of a heart condition so her two elder brothers are financially responsible for the whole family. One of her elder brothers earns 8000 PKR a month as a daily wager. Her other brother works abroad in Malaysia and sends home 12,000 PKR every month. A total income of 20,000 PKR supports the basic sustenance of 10 people as well as added expenditures such as heart medication for Sumbal’s father. Owing to their dire financial circumstances, Sumbal’s family has not been able to arrange for her surgery. With hope, they approached Transparent Hands for help.

Sumbal’s operation can be successfully conducted with your financial assistance.
