Wajeeha Akram's Story
Any delay in surgery could result in the death of this one year old baby girl. Donate and save her life now!
When Wajeeha was born, everyone was very excited but their happiness lasted for only some time. Wajeeha was only 6 months old when she was diagnosed with Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC) – a birth defect of the heart in which the veins bringing blood back from the lungs (pulmonary veins) don’t connect to the left atrium like usual.
Doctor recommended her parents that Wajeeha needs to undergo Open Heart Surgery to correct the defect. Without the surgery, her anomaly can lead to complications and even death may happen. Her parents don’t have enough money to get her operated. Her father works as an Imam in a local mosque and earns around 8,000 rupees a month. In such meager income, they hardly manage to make both ends meet. They contacted various hospitals for free surgical treatment but they are putting her on a long waiting list. This poor child cannot wait for that long. Her health is deteriorating with each passing day. She experiences chest blockage, coughing and difficulty in breathing. She doesn’t even play and eat properly like other kids of her age. Luckily, her parents found about Transparent Hands through a relative and they immediately came her.
Wajeeha is now scheduled for her Open Heart Surgery in few days at Ittefaq Hospital. This poor child is looking for your support in her surgery. Please donate for her so that she can get rid of her disease and grow normally like other kids.
Her parents said, “it hurts us a lot seeing over little daughter crying in pain all the time. We wish to see her happy but we don’t know how this will happen. Please help us”.
