Muhammad Bin Saqib Saqib Mushtaq's Story
Saqib is battling multiple heart conditions, robbing him of the joys of childhood. His family’s limited means have left them desperate for help, and they turn to you, kind-hearted souls, to extend a lifeline. Your generous donations can provide him with the critical cardiac surgery he needs, granting him the gift of a healthy life. Support Saqib’s cardiac surgery and bring a ray of light to his darkest days.
One-year-old Muhammad Bin Saqib, a resident of Lahore, has been suffering from shortness of breath, cyanosis, and repeated episodes of chest pain. His parents learned about his condition recently and took him to the local hospital. After a thorough evaluation and some diagnostic tests, the doctor diagnosed him with multiple heart conditions, including pulmonary atresia (PA), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), and ventricular septal defect (VSD). The cardiac surgeon advised him to undergo open-heart surgery for Blalock-Taussig (BT) shunt to give him a chance at a healthy life.
He lives with his parents and three siblings. His father is the only earner and earns just PKR 15,000 per month. He is not in a stable financial situation to pay for the cardiac surgery. He said in despair:
“My son’s life hangs in the balance, and I am filled with both fear and hope. Only your donations can offer him a chance to overcome his ailing heart. Please, from the depths of my heart, I request that you consider extending a helping hand. Your support could be the miracle to embracing the joy of life once more.”
Saqib’s parents reached out to us, and we registered his case. However, we need donations to provide him with the required cardiac surgery. His parents have exhausted all other options and have placed their hopes in your hands. Every donation, no matter how small, can make a difference in the life of this delicate and innocent boy. Please donate, support Saqib’s cardiac surgery, and help us save his little heart.
