Safia Bibi's Story
Safia Bibi has experienced a lot of pain over the last few years. She lost her right leg due to diabetes. She lives in a joint family with a lot of household responsibilities. Due to her disability, she is unable to manage her daily tasks without seeking help from others. Now, she needs our support to acquire an artificial leg, which will make it possible for her to walk independently again. We urge you to give for Safia Bibi’s artificial leg without any delay.
Safia Bibi, a 50-year-old resident of Lahore, has been suffering from diabetes. One year ago, her right foot got inflamed with ulcers. She went to the doctor at the local hospital. Upon evaluation, she was diagnosed with an infected diabetic foot. She had developed a spreading soft tissue infection from her foot ulcers that finally required amputation. At first, the doctor tried to save her right leg by only amputating two digits of the affected foot. But later on, he had to amputate her right leg above the knee.
She lives with ten family members. She has four children. Her husband works as a laborer and earns just PKR 25,000. Her husband hardly manages the household expenses of a big family with this meager income. It is difficult for him to pay for the prosthetic leg his wife needs. She needs an artificial leg to improve the quality of her life, carry out basic chores at home, and take care of her family. She said in a depressed tone:
“I have been unable to manage my house properly since the amputation. I need your help to get an artificial leg and manage my house and kids.”
After a lot of distress, Safia registered her case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to help her live an independent life. But it won’t be possible without your donation. Your support will give her the opportunity to get back on her feet. We ask you to give for Safia Bibi’s Artificial leg and help her walk again. Donate now without any delay.

Safia Bibi's Story
Safia Bibi, a 50-year-old resident of Lahore, had been suffering from diabetes. One year ago, her right foot got inflamed with ulcers. She went to the doctor at the local hospital. Upon evaluation, she was diagnosed with an infected diabetic foot. She had developed a spreading soft tissue infection from her foot ulcers that finally required amputation. At first, the doctor tried to save her right leg by only amputating two digits of the affected foot. But later on, he had to amputate her right leg above the knee. The loss of her right leg above the knee left her feeling helpless, dependent, and uncertain about her future.
Without an artificial leg, she faced numerous challenges on a daily basis. Normal, everyday activities like walking or climbing stairs became impossible for her. In need of financial support, she reached out to the Hope Rehabilitation Centre, Lahore, and Transparent Hands.
Her artificial leg was fixed on 15-02-2023 under the supervision of Dr.Khalid. Tears of joy streamed down her face as she realized that she could once again regain her independence. The artificial leg provided her with a newfound sense of hope and empowerment. With its support, she became capable of performing everyday tasks that were once arduous or impossible. Her ability to move freely and without any physical restrictions made walking a joyous experience. She was able to climb stairs, which gave her access to locations she had always wanted to see but was unable to due to her condition. She has also regained the confidence to connect with her relatives and engage in social gatherings.
Words cannot adequately express Safia's gratitude for the immense support she received. Every act of kindness and generosity touched her heart in profound ways. She is forever grateful to all those who contributed to her journey of recovery and transformation.
