Shahnawaz Bachoo Khan's Story
Shahnawaz is in a lot of pain right now. What torments him even more is the fact that he can’t afford the treatment he needs. Therefore, we urge you to please donate for Shahnawaz’s ORIF and bone grafting.
Shahnawaz, a 38-year-old resident of Shangar, had an accident a month ago. His right hip joint fractured badly. He was taken to a local quack because he couldn’t afford a professional doctor. The quack treated him with a bandage. After the treatment, his pain not only persisted but he was unable to bear his own weight and walk. Then he went to the hospital for his checkup. The doctors diagnosed him with a right Sub trochanteric Fracture of the hip joint. The neck of the femur connects the shaft and head at a 125° angle, which is efficient for walking. After the fracture this angle has been disrupted and the patient is unable to bear weight.
ORIF with locking plates and bone grafting is the only possible solution to Shahnawaz’s non-united Femur bone. However, he cannot afford the hefty cost of this surgery.
Due to his deteriorating health, he is not able to work. Before this, he was a dispenser at a private hospital with a monthly income of PKR 8,000. With rent and a family of ten members to support, paying for this surgery is out of the question for him.
“With this injury, I am unable to work. How can I pay for my surgery as the only earner in the family? I hope someone helps me soon.” – Shahnawaz.
After a lot of distress, Shahnawaz has requested Transparent Hands for help. We have assured him that we will arrange his surgery as soon as possible. Now, all we need is your help. Donate for Shahnawaz’s ORIF and bone grafting as much as you can.
