Shahzaib Ahmed's Story

At just 22 years old, Shahzaib Ahmed has bravely faced a lifelong battle with a complex congenital heart disease. Since birth, he has endured the debilitating symptoms of shortness of breath, chest pain, and extreme fatigue, which have severely limited his ability to live a full and active life.

In 2020, Shahzaib underwent his first open-heart surgery, a BDG shunt procedure, to help manage his condition. However, his journey has been far from over, as he now faces the urgent need for a Redo-Open Heart Surgery to undergo the Fontan procedure – a critical step in treating his transposition of the great arteries (TGA), ventricular septal defect (VSD), and pulmonary stenosis (PS).

Tragically, Shahzaib’s family is facing immense financial hardship, as his father is currently unemployed due to his own health challenges. With the family’s sole breadwinner being Shahzaib’s brother, a daily wage earner making just 25,000 PKR per month, the prospect of affording the life-saving surgery is an overwhelming burden.

Shahzaib’s family lives in their own home, but must contend with mounting utility bills and a substantial loan of 800,000 PKR, leaving them with little means to cover the costs of the critical Redo-Open Heart Surgery.

“I’ve fought this battle for as long as I can remember, but now I fear that the journey may come to an end if I cannot receive the surgery I so desperately need,” says Shahzaib. “My family has done everything in their power to support me, but the financial strain has become too much to bear alone. I am pleading for the generosity of others to help me reclaim my health and my life.”

With your compassionate contribution, you can help ease the burden on Shahzaib’s family and provide him with the life-saving treatment he requires. Your support will not only transform Shahzaib’s life but also restore hope and stability to his loved ones during this immensely challenging time.

Please Note: In certain situations, we proceed with the patient's surgery/medical procedure despite incomplete funding displayed on the website. Following the surgery/medical procedure, we persist in collecting funds and maintain the campaign on the website until funding is secured in full. Hospitals have granted us a grace period for bill payment.
