Zahida Parveen's Story
Zahida is unable to walk independently due to pain in both knees. She suffers from advanced osteoarthritis and has been praying for a donor like you to help her get back on her feet. Only you can help Zahida walk again.
Zahida Parveen, a 45-year-old resident of Sahiwal, has been suffering from knee joint pain for the past five years. She received some symptomatic treatment, but it had never worked for her and her condition has only become worse.
Upon consulting an Orthopedician and after going through a number of diagnostic tests, she was diagnosed with Advanced Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knees. Knee OA is the result of articular cartilage degeneration without any known reason. This is typically thought of as degeneration due to age as well as wear and tear. After the diagnosis, Zahida was advised to undergo Total Knee Replacement surgery for her right knee. Total Knee Replacement surgery (TKR) is a complex procedure in which effective joint surfaces are replaced with artificial joints. She shared her distress with us in the following words:
“Not only do I find it difficult to earn anything due to this knee pain, but I also haven’t been able to take care of my children properly. I don’t want to be a burden on my family any longer. They have already faced a lot of troubles because of my condition. Please help me.”
Zahida’s husband earns just PKR 10,000 per month and cannot afford this costly procedure. This income is barely enough to support his family of seven. He needs the help of a generous donor like you to help his wife.
After a lot of distress and with the help of her doctor, Zahida has registered her case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to put her on the path to good health. But, it won’t be possible without your help. Your support can get Zahida back on her feet. We request you to donate generously and help Zahida walk again.
