Arooj Zafar's Story

Arooj is a vibrant, curious, and innocent girl with a heart full of love and laughter. But behind her bright smile is a heart struggling to beat properly. Her parents are extremely concerned and fearful for her life. Due to financial constraints, her parents are counting on us to give their daughter a brighter future, and we can’t do it without your help. Come forward to help us give her a second chance at life and save Arooj’s, little heart. 

Four-year-old Arooj Zafar, a resident of Okara, has been suffering from shortness of breath and cyanosis since birth. She also feels physical exertion during mild activity. She is unable to gain weight because of her poor appetite. Her parents learned about her deteriorating health when she was one year old.  Her parents took her to a local hospital. After the diagnostic tests and evaluation, the doctor diagnosed her with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). TOF involves heart defects that change the way blood flows through the heart. The cardiac surgeon advised her to undergo Open-Heart Surgery after the angiography.

She lives with his parents and two siblings. His father works as a daily wager and earns just PKR 20,000 per month. He barely manages household expenses with this minimal income. He is not financially stable enough to pay for the costly cardiac surgery. He said with teary eyes:

“My daughter Arooj is fighting for her life, and her ailing heart needs your help. Please donate generously to support her open-heart surgery and give her a chance to live a healthy life.”

Her parents are extremely concerned about her deteriorating condition and have contacted Transparent Hands to register her case. We are determined to support her Open-Heart surgery fully, but we need your donations to give her a chance to live with a healthy heart. We seek your financial support to save Arooj’s, little heart. Even a small donation can make a big difference in her life and help her to smile, play, and grow without any fears.

Arooj Zafar's Story

We are thrilled to share the heartwarming success story of Arooj Zafar, a four-year-old girl from Okara, who faced health challenges from a young age. Arooj's parents noticed her difficulty in breathing and bluish skin when she turned one year old. Worried, they took her to a local hospital where doctors diagnosed her with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), a complex heart condition. To give Arooj a chance at a healthy life, the doctors recommended an Open-Heart Surgery that included repairing a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) and removing a Right Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction (RVOTO). However, Arooj's family faced financial constraints, and her father couldn't afford the costly surgery.

Fortunately, Arooj's story took a positive turn thanks to the support of compassionate individuals like you. Our generous donors came forward to lend a helping hand. With their support, Arooj was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital in Lahore, where Dr. Asim performed her life-saving surgery on 2nd March 2023.

Following the successful procedure, Arooj's recovery was swift and remarkable. After spending seven days in the hospital, she was discharged, carrying with her a healthy heart and renewed hope for the future. The surgery, made possible by the kindness of donors, has transformed Arooj's life in unimaginable ways. Today, Arooj is a vibrant, joyful, and energetic little girl. Her smile radiates happiness, and she is now able to embrace life without the burden of her previous health struggles. Her parents are immensely grateful to everyone who contributed to her journey of healing.

Thank you to PCHF, Sana Rab Akbar,  Tooba Shahid Sherwani, and all the other donors who generously contributed to Arooj's cause. Your selfless support has not only saved her life but has also provided her with the opportunity to flourish, thrive, and pursue her dreams.

May this success story motivate us to continue changing lives and creating a world where every child has access to the medical care they deserve. Thank you for being a part of Arooj's remarkable journey from illness to recovery. Support us to complete the surgeries of other patients.
