Ashraf Ali's Story
Before you proceed to read the sorry details of Ashraf Ali’s ailments, please know that you can make a difference in his life. Your donation, however small it may be, will change Ashraf Ali’s life for the better. Help Ashraf Ali see clearly and donate for his Phacoemulsification and IOL surgery as much as you can.
For the last two years, Ashraf Ali has been suffering from a cataract in his left eye. A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye. For people who have cataracts, seeing through cloudy lenses is a bit like looking through a frosty or fogged-up window.
To treat this condition, the doctor has advised Ashraf to undergo a Phacoemulsification surgery with IOL. In case you are wondering how phacoemulsification works, let us briefly recap what happens in this surgical treatment. The internal lens of your eye with cataracts is emulsified using ultrasonic energy. Once the emulsification process is completed, the lens is replaced with an artificial lens. The process is called an IOL implant and serves well to make a person see properly once again.
While there is no doubt about the effectiveness of this surgical procedure, it is certainly not an accessible procedure. Unfortunately, Ashraf Ali cannot afford the hefty cost of cataract surgery. He works as a labourer and hardly earns PKR 10,000 per month. He told us:
“This disease has started to create hindrance in my work. I cannot see clearly which is why my contractor does not assign me any work. How will I live like this?”
Finally, with the help of their doctors, Ashraf Ali has requested Transparent Hands for help. We want to get him healthy and happy as soon as possible. But, it won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to help Ashraf Ali see clearly and donate for his cataract surgery as much as you can.
