Maroofa Wali's Story
“Maroofa is my firstborn. The apple of my eye. The news of her disease swept us away. I do not have the heart to imagine a life without her. We have circled back and forth to a million hospitals and none of them can help me. Never have I ever felt this helpless and weak before. Please help Transparent Hands keep Maroofa’s heart beating. They are my only hope.” -Maroofa Wali’s Father
At birth, Maroofa Wali was a meek and feeble baby. Her deteriorating health became a source of perpetual distress for her parents. Despite her mother’s utmost efforts, Maroofa failed to gain even an ounce for the next 3 months. Moreover, she fell prey to multiple chest infections which shackled her health further. At the age of 4 months, Maroofa’s parents took her to the hospital. Later on, after a thorough check-up, the cardiologist diagnosed her with a congenital defect known as VSD. Ventricular Septal Defect or VSD is a hole in the wall which separates the two lower chambers of the heart.
The cardiologist told Maroofa’s parents that to keep Maroofa’s heart beating, she will have to undergo open-heart surgery.
Maroofa’s parents have circled back and forth to various local hospitals but they were not able to get any help. Maroofa’s father used to work as a cook. Due to the pandemic cut downs and debilitating job market he has been out of work since March. In these circumstances, he cannot even keep his household running. Let alone arrange for his daughter’s surgery. Therefore, we urge you to please donate to keep Maroofa’s heart beating.
At last, Maroofa’s parents have registered her case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to get her healthy and happy as soon as possible. All we need now is your earnest donation. Please donate and help us keep Maroofa’s heart beating. Donate now.
