Bakhtawar Majeed's Story

Bakhtawar Majeed, a vibrant 13-year-old girl from the rural village of Dera Ghazi Khan, should be enjoying the carefree days of her teenage years. Yet, her life has been overshadowed by a relentless battle against a complex congenital heart condition that threatens to steal her future.

Bakhtawar’s struggles with breathlessness, chest discomfort, and overwhelming fatigue, even during the most mild physical activities. After a thorough examination by a cardiologist, she was diagnosed with a serious combination of heart defects – Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), Left Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction (LVOTO), and Left Ventricular Volume Overload (LVVO).

The doctor’s prognosis was clear: Bakhtawar urgently requires VSD closure and subaortic membrane resection surgery to correct these life-threatening issues and give her a chance at a normal, healthy life. Without this intervention, her condition will only continue to deteriorate, putting her at grave risk.

Bakhtawar’s family, however, faces an overwhelming financial burden. She lives in a mud house in the village near Dera Ghazi Khan with her parents and two siblings. Her father, a daily wage laborer, earns a modest monthly income of PKR 28,000, which barely covers the family’s basic expenses, including utility bills, loan payments, and school fees. The cost of the heart surgery, estimated at a significant sum, is simply beyond their means.

Bakhtawar’s father, filled with both hope and despair, pleads for help, saying, “My daughter’s future hangs by a thread. We are utterly helpless to provide her the care she so desperately needs. I request to support my daughter’s surgery with your generous donations.

Time is of the essence for young Bakhtawar. With your compassionate support, we can ensure that she receives the lifesaving treatment she requires and give her a chance to grow into a healthy, thriving individual, free from the shackles of her heart condition. Your contribution, no matter how small, can make all the difference in Bakhtawar’s journey towards a brighter tomorrow.

Please Note: In certain situations, we proceed with the patient's surgery/medical procedure despite incomplete funding displayed on the website. Following the surgery/medical procedure, we persist in collecting funds and maintain the campaign on the website until funding is secured in full. Hospitals have granted us a grace period for bill payment.
