Uzma Bibi's Story
Uzma Bibi, 10 years old, is suffering from chronic inflammation and infection of her tonsils, a condition known as chronic tonsillitis. With the passage of time, she has started to experience repeated attack of symptoms including fever, pain in throat and difficulty in swallowing food. Uzma needs to undergo surgical removal of the tonsils, or a tonsillectomy, as a permanent solution but her parents cannot afford the cost of her surgery.
Apart from Uzma, her parents have 8 other family members to support on a monthly earning of just 15,000 PKR. For many months now, they have struggled to get her treated at local hospitals but no one is willing to accommodate them.
“Uzma’s repeated episodes of fever had started to worry us a lot so we tried out best to contact all the resources we came to know of. But despite it being a simple operation, no one helped us.” – Uzma’s mother
