Muhammad Asif's Story
Muhammad Asif is suffering from Tuberculous Arthritis in his right knee. Due to this condition, he feels pain every time he walks. What makes it worse for him is that he cannot afford to pay for the surgery he needs to overcome this condition. He is hopeful that generous donors like you will help him. Please support Muhammad Asif’s Total Knee Replacement with as little as $10.
Muhammad Asif, a 40-year-old resident of Sialkot, had an accident. He was taken to the local hospital for emergency treatment. The doctor evaluated him and applied a plaster cast to his right leg to heal the fracture. However, later on, he developed knee arthritis, which, after investigations, was labeled as tuberculous arthritis. This infection of the joint is caused by bacteria. This form of arthritis can be very destructive to the tissues. It is important to control the infection to prevent more joints from becoming involved. The doctor has controlled the infection and is now advising total knee replacement surgery. A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure to resurface a knee damaged by arthritis. Metal and plastic parts are used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint along with the kneecap.
Muhammad Asif lives in a rented house with his wife and two children. He is the family’s only breadwinner with a total income of PKR 15,000 per month. The surgery is very costly and he cannot afford to pay for it.
He said with teary eyes:
“I feel pain and swelling in my right knee while walking. I am a laborer and it is affecting my work. I am unable to manage my pain to stay active at work. My income is limited and I have no savings to pay for the surgical expenses. My family relies on me for support. Please donate and support my total knee replacement surgery.”
He contacted Transparent Hands with great expectations. Please support Muhammad Asif’s total knee replacement surgery as it will bring him relief.
