Zaheer Ahmad's Story
38 years old Zaheer Ahmad hails from the Mardan district of K.P.K province. He suffers from a condition called an inguinal hernia. While the concept of hernia is clear to most people, an inguinal hernia can occur when tissue protrudes through a weak spot in abdominal muscles in the region of the groin. As a result, a bulge is formed, which can cause immense discomfort and pain during daily life activities and chores. In Zaheer Ahmad’s case, this protrusion was sudden. Ultrasounds suggested that Zaheer should undergo a surgical procedure called inguinal hernioplasty. This invasive procedure involves pushing back the hernia contents to their original abode in the body once the hernia sac is identified.
Zaheer Ahmad needs a right inguinal hernioplasty. But his financial condition is not in his favour. As an instructor at a mosque, Zaheer is earning 15,000 PKR per month as of now. He has a three-membered family to manage which lives in a 2-marla house. On the other hand, a herniotomy is certainly going to cost more than what Zaheer earns for a living. Had it not been for Transparent Hands, Zaheer had plans of postponing the much-needed surgery once more.
“If my hernia is treated but my kids are sleeping with less food in their stomach, what good is that treatment for my family? One of my students told me about Transparent Hands and their fundraising mechanism. I have some hope now, something which I can live by as hernia makes my life miserable every day”
