Saira Bibi's Story

Saira’s mother cries all the time because not only is her baby suffering from a deadly disease, but they are also unable to pay for the treatment she needs due to financial constraints. Saira and her parents need your support. Your donation can help us save Saira’s heart and unlock a healthy and bright future for her.

One-and-a-half-year-old Saira, a resident of Rahim Yar Khan, was born with a cardiac defect.  She was suffering from shortness of breath on mild physical activity and frequent episodes of fainting. Her parents took her to the doctor. Upon consultation, she was diagnosed with Large Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) with coarctation of aorta. Early indications of heart failure can be caused by a large PDA. To treat this, the Cardiologist advised correction of coarctation. But unfortunately, Saira’s parents cannot afford to pay for this procedure. Saira’s father shared his distress with us in the following words:

“I didn’t know why my daughter was fainting while playing. At first, I thought it is just weakness. But later on, I found out that it is something worse than that. I am a laborer and I can’t afford this heart surgery. My hopes are in your hands. I hope they will help my daughter with living a healthy life like all the other kids.”

Saira’s father works as a laborer and earns just PKR 12,000 per month. They have no financial support from any friends or relatives. They found out about Transparent Hands and got in touch with us. We have registered her case and are determined to provide her with the treatment she needs. However, we need your support to do so. We urge you to donate generously and help us save Saira’s heart. Even a small donation can make a lasting impact.
