Ameer Shah's Story
Syed Ameer Shah is in immense pain right now. His ailment has restricted his mobility to an extent where he is unable to walk or get up on his own two feet. Your help can relieve him of the pain. Your donations, however small they may be will help Ameer Shah walk again. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Ameer Shah’s knee replacement surgery as much as you can.
For the last fifteen years, seventy-eight-year-old Syed Ameer Shah has been suffering from Osteoarthritis involving both knees. Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes the cartilage in the knee joint to thin out. As a result, the movement becomes painful, and the joint becomes stiff. Due to this condition, Syed Ameer is not able to get up or walk. Moreover, the pain has become unbearable for him.
To treat this, the orthopedic surgeon has advised Syed Ameer to undergo a total knee replacement surgery for his right leg. It is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. Unfortunately, Syed Ameer cannot afford to arrange the surgery for himself. He is financially dependent on his son who works as domestic help and hardly earns PKR 17,000 per month. He told us:
“With a measly income of PKR 17000, I cannot afford the hefty cost of my father’s surgery. Whoever is reading this, I request you to please help my father walk again.”
After a lot of mental and physical anguish, Syed Ameer Shah’s sons have registered his case with Transparent Hands. We have assured them that we would try our best to help their father as soon as possible. But, it won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Ameer Shah’s knee replacement surgery and help Ameer Shah walk again.
