Kinza Nasir's Story
Before you dive into the sorry tale of Kinza’s life, please know that Kinza Nasir’s little heart needs all your help to keep beating. Your donation, however small it may be, will create a huge difference in Kinza’s life. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Kinza’s VSD Closure and help us treat Kinza’s little heart.
Ever since Kinza was a few months old, she repeatedly fell prey to chest infections. At first, her parents blamed it on an evil eye and proceeded to treat it with home remedies. However, the problem persisted, and Kinza Nasir was diagnosed with a VSD. VSD is a hole in the wall (septum) dividing the two lower chambers of the heart (ventricles). Normally, this wall closes before birth. When it doesn’t, oxygen-rich blood in the left chamber can mix with oxygen-poor blood in the right one.
The doctors have made it clear that the only way to permanently cure Kinza’s ailment is open heart surgery. But, unfortunately, Kinza’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of the surgery. Kinza’s father is the sole earner of the family. He works as a manual labourer on daily wages and hardly manages to earn PKR 15000 per month. With this income, he cannot arrange for his daughter’s surgery. He told us:
“Every day I see my daughter fighting with the shadow of death that keeps hovering above her head. It pains me to no end.”
After a lot of mental and physical anguish, through the help of their neighbours, Kinza’s parents have registered her case with Transparent Hands. Her sorry tale has brought tears to our eyes and we are determined to get her treated as soon as possible. But, it won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Kinza’s VSD closure, your donations will help us treat Kinza’s little heart. Donate now!

Kinza Nasir's Story
Kinza Nasir, an 18-year-old resident of Kasur, was born with a congenital cardiac defect. Upon consultation, she was diagnosed with Ventricular Septal Defect. The doctor advised her to undergo Ventricular Septal Defect Closure after open heart surgery. Therefore, she was sent to University of Lahore Teaching Hospital to get her surgery done by Dr. Faiz Rasool on 4-01-2022. Kinza stayed in the hospital for five days until she was seen recovering well. She was discharged in satisfactory condition. This surgery was made possible with the help of Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation. Kinza is now cured.
