Owais Khalil's Story
Owais, a spirited seven-year-old resident of Hub, finds his life limited by a debilitating health condition known as a hydrocele. This condition causes a connection to form between his abdomen and scrotum, leading to discomfort and hindering his ability to lead a normal, active life. Unfortunately, his father, burdened by financial hardships, cannot afford the cost of the necessary surgery.
Owais’s hope for a better future lies in the hands of compassionate individuals who can help fund his much-needed operation.
Owais experiences a range of symptoms related to his hydrocele. Swelling in his scrotum causes discomfort, making it difficult for him to engage in physical activities that other children his age enjoy. Concerned about his son’s well-being, Owais’s father took him to the local hospital, where a doctor diagnosed him with a right-sided hydrocele. A hydrocele is a condition where fluid accumulates in the scrotum, usually due to a connection known as the patent processus vaginalis. The doctor recommended a surgical procedure called Ligation of Patent Processus Vaginalis (PPV), which aims to divide and close this connection, resolving the hydrocele and alleviating Owais’s symptoms.
Owais’s father, already burdened by financial hardships, is unable to afford the cost of the PPV ligation surgery. Living in Hub, a town with limited medical facilities, further exacerbates their situation. The lack of accessible healthcare options leaves Owais and his father with no choice but to seek assistance from compassionate donors. He said in despair:
“Please, consider making a donation, no matter how small, to help free Owais from the chains of his hydrocele. Your generosity can be the beacon of hope that lights up his path to a life full of joy and endless possibilities.”
Owais’s father reached out to Transparent Hands, registering their case with a glimmer of hope. Now, their aspirations rest in the hands of compassionate donors, whose support can bring a life-changing surgery to Owais and a brighter future ahead.

Owais Khalil's Story
Owais, a seven-year-old boy from Hub, faced the limitations imposed by a debilitating health condition known as a hydrocele along with a hernia. This condition created a connection between his abdomen and scrotum, causing discomfort and hindering his ability to lead a normal, active life. Unfortunately, his father, burdened by financial hardships, found himself unable to afford the cost of the necessary surgery. With no access to proper medical treatment in their village, Owais's father took him to a local hospital in a nearby city in search of help.
At the hospital, a doctor diagnosed Owais with a right-sided hydrocele. Recognizing the impact this condition had on Owais's daily life, the doctor recommended hydrocele along with herniotomy—a procedure aimed at removing the fluid and repairing the connection between the abdomen and scrotum.
In their quest for a solution, Owais's case was registered with Transparent Hands, an organization dedicated to providing financial support for individuals in need of medical treatment. Through the kindness of compassionate donors, the necessary funds were raised, offering Owais and his family a glimmer of hope amidst their struggles.
With the financial burden lifted, Owais was admitted to Murshid Hospital, Karachi, where he was placed under the care of Dr. Khair Jan, a skilled surgeon specializing in the treatment of hydroceles. On the 27th of October 2023, the surgery was performed successfully, marking a significant turning point in Owais's life.
After one day of post-operative care, Owais was discharged from the hospital, his condition stable and his spirits lifted. The successful surgery and the unwavering support of Transparent Hands and the generous donors brought renewed hope and joy to Owais and his family. With the hydrocele successfully treated, Owais can look forward to a normal, active life.
