Waseem Akram 's Story

“My child remains upset all the time as nobody comes near him or wants to play with him due to his condition. I wish I could take all his pain away. He has been a brave child for 8 years but now he has given up. He asks me every day, “mama, why I’m not like my siblings? Why I’ve no friends? I’m tired of watching him crying in pain. Please help my child.” – Waseem’s mother

Waseem was born with Anorectal Malformation – his anus and rectum didn’t develop properly. His first surgery “colostomy” was carried out at a local hospital when he was only 2 days old. When he turned 3, his second surgery was performed at the same hospital. His passage for bowel movements was made at the usual site. 

Today, Waseem is 8 years old and his family has been visiting the hospital for years for his last and final surgery. Due to the backlog of surgeries, the hospital is unable to provide him free treatment soon. Waseem’s condition doesn’t allow him to wait for a few more years. All his siblings go to school but he is unable to even go out of his home due to his stoma bag and bad odor coming out of it. Children in his street make fun of him which has made him depressed. Luckily, they learned about Transparent Hands and requested for free treatment. 

A small step can make his dreams come true, help him now

This poor child is now looking for your donations to start a new life again. His surgery is scheduled in a few days at Akram Medical Complex but it will not be possible without your kind support. Donate and let this child live a carefree childhood!

Waseem Akram 's Story

Waseem Akram, 8 years old, was suffering from anorectal malformation (ARM) resulting in an absent back passage. His emergency colostomy was done at birth to make a temporary passage for stool. His posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP) was done four years ago to make a definitive passage for stool. He was advised surgery to reverse his colostomy now and make his back passage functional. His surgery was done at Akram Medical Complex, on 09-01-20, by Dr Naveed Haider. He stayed for 4 days in the hospital with good post-operative recovery and was discharged in good health.
