Muhammad Usman's Story
Before you proceed to read the details that have proven to be a hindrance in Muhammad Usman’s life, please know that you can help him. Your donations, however small they may be, will help Usman lead a normal life. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Usman’s Laparotomy as much as you can.
Four years old Muhammad Usman has been suffering from umbilical discharge since birth. At first, his parents did not pay any heed to it. However, the problem persisted, and Usman’s parents consulted a doctor. Provisionally, the doctor has diagnosed Usman with Patent vitellointestinal duct (PVID).
It is a benign congenital anomaly usually in which, there is fecal discharge from the umbilicus. To move towards the treatment, Usman’s doctor has advised him to undergo a Laparotomy. A laparotomy is a surgical incision (cut) into the abdominal cavity. This operation is performed to examine the abdominal organs and aid diagnosis of any problems. In this way, the problem – once identified – can be fixed during the surgery.
Unfortunately, Muhammad Usman’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of a Laparotomy. His father works as a laborer and hardly manages to earn PKR 15000 per month. In this income, he feeds his entire family. Therefore, he cannot arrange for his son’s surgery. He told us:
“Right now, I feel as if I am standing in front of a threshold of doom. Will my son ever live a normal life? I do not know the answer to it.”
After bearing a lot of physical and psychological distress, Muhammad Usman’s parents have registered his case with Transparent Hands. We have assured them that we will do everything in our capacity to help Usman lead a normal life. Please donate for Usman’s Laparotomy as much as you can.
