Dua Zahra Imran Ali's Story
Dua’s childhood is being negatively impacted by her heart defects. Her physical growth is slow, and she does not have much energy. This makes it hard for her to interact with her parents or play with other kids. But her future looks uncertain if she does not have heart surgery. The cost of the surgery is out of her family’s reach. We urge you to donate and save Dua’s little heart.
Four-year-old Dua Zahra, a resident of Bhakkar, has been suffering from cyanosis, dyspnea, and repeated episodes of chest pain. Her parents noticed her deteriorating health recently. They took her to the local hospital. After running some diagnostic tests, the cardiologist diagnosed her with multiple heart defects, including ventricular septal defect (VSD) and severe pulmonary hypertension. The doctor advised her to undergo open-heart surgery for VSD closure.
She lives with her parents and one sibling in a rented house. Her father is the only breadwinner for the family and earns PKR 25,000 monthly as a laborer. The family was already struggling to make ends meet, and the cost of this life-saving heart surgery was simply too much for them to bear. Her father said in a depressed tone:
“Since the day my daughter entered this world, she has faced an uphill battle with multiple heart defects. Every single day has been a relentless struggle for her. Today, I come to you with a plea that resonates from the depths of my heart. I implore you to join us in giving her a chance at a brighter future, filled with hope and possibilities.”

Dua Zahra, a courageous four-year-old girl residing in Bhakkar, faced an uphill battle with her health. Cyanosis, dyspnea, and recurring chest pain had become constant companions in her young life. Worried about their daughter's declining condition, Dua's parents turned to a local hospital for help. After a series of tests, a cardiologist delivered the devastating news of multiple heart defects, including a ventricular septal defect (VSD) accompanied by severe pulmonary hypertension.
