Jannat Fatima's Story
Jannat was born with complex heart defects. If these heart defects are not treated with surgery, they may cause heart failure, heart blocks, and high blood pressure in the lungs. You can help her ailing heart with your financial gift. Please consider donating today to save Jannat’s little heart and prolong her life.
Newly born Jannat, a resident of Rawalpindi, has been suffering from shortness of breath, cyanosis, and episodes of fever and chest pain. Her parents took her to a nearby hospital to consult with a cardiologist. After a thorough evaluation and some diagnostic tests, the doctor diagnosed her with multiple heart defects, including dextro transposition of the great arteries (TGA), ventricular septal defect (VSD), patent foramen ovale (PFO), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), and pulmonary hypertension (PH). The cardiologist advised her to undergo an arterial switch operation, which is an open-heart surgery to correct the TGA.
She lives in a rented house with her parents and five siblings. Her father earns just PKR 30,000 per month as a shopkeeper. He has no other source of income. Due to financial constraints, her father cannot afford the expensive surgery. Her father spoke with despair:
“As a father, my heart breaks knowing that my precious and delicate daughter needs critical cardiac surgery, but the weight of financial constraints threatens to shatter our hopes and dreams.”
Her parents are extremely concerned about their daughter’s deteriorating condition and contacted Transparent Hands to register her case. We are determined to fully support her cardiac surgery, but we need your donations to save this little girl’s heart. Her parents have exhausted all other options and have placed their hopes in your hands. We urge you to save Jannat’s little heart and add many years to her life. Even a small donation can change her future and help her play and live like all the other kids her age. Be the light for Jannat and her helpless family.

Jannat Fatima's Story
Jannat Fatima, a newly born resident of Rawalpindi, had been suffering from shortness of breath, cyanosis, and episodes of fever and chest pain. Her parents took her to a nearby hospital to consult with a cardiologist. After a thorough evaluation and some diagnostic tests, the doctor diagnosed her with multiple heart defects, including transposition of the great arteries (TGA), ventricular septal defect (VSD), patent foramen ovale (PFO), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), and pulmonary hypertension (PH). The cardiologist advised her to undergo an arterial switch operation and a median sternotomy.
Unfortunately, her family could not afford the cost of the surgery. They desperately needed financial assistance and turned to Transparent Hands at this time. The funds for the surgery were arranged successfully.
She was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore, where her operation was performed by Dr. Asim on 19-05-2023. The surgery was a resounding success, and she was discharged from the hospital after a twenty-nine-day stay, much to the relief and joy of her family. During her stay at the hospital, she also developed acute abdomen pain and underwent another surgery for right-sided hemicolectomy for intussusception after laparotomy by Dr. Daud on 31-05-2023. The Pakistan Children's Heart Foundation and some other generous donors helped make her cardiac surgery possible.
The operation not only extended her life but also gave her new opportunities. She can finally live her life to the fullest now that her health has been restored. Without the help of generous people like you, none of this would have been possible. Her life and the lives of her entire family have been profoundly impacted by your contributions. There is no way to measure the emotional relief her parents feel knowing their daughter has been given a chance at a happy and healthy future. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to every donor who helped make this life-saving procedure possible. Little flowers like Jannat awaiting for the donations.
