Zahra Fatima's Story

Zahra Fatima is a sweet little child with a potentially fatal heart condition. She suffers every day as a result of a congenital cardiac defect that requires immediate medical attention. You can save Zahra Fatima’s life by donating for her open-heart surgery. 

Two-year-old Zahra Fatima, a resident of Toba Tek Singh, has been suffering from a heart disease since birth. She has also been enduring shortness of breath on mild exertion and weakness. Her parents took her for a consultation. Upon consultation, and after going through a number of diagnostic tests, Zahra Fatima was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot. Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a cardiac ailment that affects newborns and children and is caused by a combination of four congenital (existing at birth) heart abnormalities. The abnormalities happen at the same time and affect how blood flows through the heart and lungs. After the diagnosis, the cardiologist advised Zahra Fatima to undergo an Open Heart Surgery for Total Correction. Her mother shared her distress with us in the following words:

Her father is a laborer with a meager monthly income of PKR 15,000. He cannot afford to pay for Zahra’s open-heart surgery due to financial constraints. 

“Our daughter’s life and future hang in the balance due to this deadly congenital cardiac defect. I started crying when the doctor told us about her condition. Please assist us if you are reading this.”

Zahra’s parents were desperate, but they finally found out about Transparent Hands. They contacted us and we registered her case. We are determined to provide her with the treatment she needs. Now, all we need is your support and generous donations to save Zahra Fatima’s life. Support her life-saving open-heart surgery as soon as possible. Your donations will keep her little heart beating and put her mother’s fears to rest. She deserves to live a healthy and normal life like all the other girls.
