Mahnoor Tofeeq's Story
Mahnoor Tofeeq, aged 8 years, hails from Abbottabad. She has been suffering from frequent episodes of chest infections since birth. Her mother noticed that Mahnoor would often experience breathlessness on mild exertion. The parents decided to take her for a medical evaluation. Upon medical evaluation the cardiologist diagnosed her with a hole in her heart. Such a condition is referred to as (ASD). ASD is a heart condition in which a hole exists in the cardiac septum that separates the upper two atrial chambers, and more often than not, doesn’t lead to any serious consequences. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about Mahnoor Taufeeq, who has been advised to undergo ASD repair. ASD repair is a surgical procedure that involves open heart surgery through which patches are placed to close the hole. Unfortunately, due to financial constraints Mahnoor Tofeeq and her family are struggling to afford an ASD repair. Her father narrates the story of their woes in the following words:
“I am a daily wager, all that I earn by toiling hard all month hardly amounts to PKR. 15,000. Managing a six member family in this meagre income is an impossible feat which I have to achieve every month. Affording my darling daughter’s surgery seems to be out of the question too. It breaks my heart to see that I can not afford to get her heart fixed. She is living a different life as opposed to her siblings. I want her to smile, play, run and go to school.”
Mahnoor Tofeeq awaits an Open Heart Surgery. Now Mahnoor and her family have been connected with Transparent Hands. We hope to arrange a free surgery for her. Please generously donate for Mahnoor’s ASD closure and help her lead a normal life.
