Bibi Safia's Story
Bibi Safia is suffering from an umbilical hernia. It is a painful condition that can be treated with surgery, but her family is not in a financial condition to pay for her hernia surgery. We urge you to give for Bibi Safia’s hernioplasty generously.
Bibi Safia, a 41-year-old resident of Karachi, went to a local hospital for a general checkup one year ago and told the doctor that she was suffering from lower abdominal pain. Initially, the doctor prescribed painkillers. After some time, when her condition worsened, she revisited the hospital and the doctor advised an ultrasound. After a complete evaluation, she was diagnosed with a paraumbilical hernia. The doctor advised her to undergo a hernioplasty to fix the hernia.
She lives with her husband and three children in a rented house. Her husband is a driver who earns just PKR 20,000. It is difficult for her husband to pay for her treatment while managing the household expenses. She said in a distressed tone:
“The pain and discomfort are dominating my life right now. I struggle to manage even the most basic tasks. I urge you to donate for my hernioplasty surgery as much as you can.”
Her case is now registered with Transparent Hands. Her family members have placed their hopes in your hands. We have assured her family that we will provide her with the best treatment. The surgery will make it possible for her to regain a healthy life to fulfill her household responsibilities. She needs a healthy life to look after her children. Her children also want to see their mother as active and healthy as before. You can contribute to bringing relief into her life. Please give for Bibi Safia’s hernioplasty to reduce her discomfort. Her family will be grateful for any contribution you make.

Bibi Safia's Story
Bibi Safia, a 41-year-old woman from a small village in Karachi, belonged to a poor family. She had been suffering from a paraumbilical hernia for a long time. The constant pain and discomfort made it difficult for her to perform even the simplest of tasks. She consulted with her doctor and was advised to undergo surgery, known as hernioplasty, to correct the hernia. However, due to her bad financial condition, she couldn't afford the cost of the surgery. She felt hopeless and helpless, not knowing how she would be able to get the medical attention she needed.
That's when Bibi Safia learned about Transparent Hands, an NGO known for its mission to provide healthcare to underprivileged communities in Pakistan. She approached the organization for help and was amazed by the empathy and kindness she received from the team. Transparent Hands listened to her story and understood her situation. They immediately began working on finding a solution to her problem. Bibi Safia was then admitted to United Hospital on 6th October, 2022 for general surgery to repair her paraumbilical hernia. The experienced surgeon Dr. Shumaila Ayub performed the surgery on the same day. The procedure went smoothly and Bibi Safia recovered well from the surgery. She was discharged from the hospital on 8th October, just two days after the surgery.
Throughout her journey, Bibi Safia felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude towards Transparent Hands. She felt like a weight had been lifted off her shoulders and was finally able to see a brighter future ahead of her. She no longer had to struggle with pain and discomfort and was now able to live her life to the fullest.
