Bibi Safia's Story
Bibi Safia, a 41-year-old woman from a small village in Karachi, belonged to a poor family. She had been suffering from a paraumbilical hernia for a long time. The constant pain and discomfort made it difficult for her to perform even the simplest of tasks. She consulted with her doctor and was advised to undergo surgery, known as hernioplasty, to correct the hernia. However, due to her bad financial condition, she couldn’t afford the cost of the surgery. She felt hopeless and helpless, not knowing how she would be able to get the medical attention she needed.
That’s when Bibi Safia learned about Transparent Hands, an NGO known for its mission to provide healthcare to underprivileged communities in Pakistan. She approached the organization for help and was amazed by the empathy and kindness she received from the team. Transparent Hands listened to her story and understood her situation. They immediately began working on finding a solution to her problem. Bibi Safia was then admitted to United Hospital on 6th October, 2022 for general surgery to repair her paraumbilical hernia. The experienced surgeon Dr. Shumaila Ayub performed the surgery on the same day. The procedure went smoothly and Bibi Safia recovered well from the surgery. She was discharged from the hospital on 8th October, just two days after the surgery.
Throughout her journey, Bibi Safia felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude towards Transparent Hands. She felt like a weight had been lifted off her shoulders and was finally able to see a brighter future ahead of her. She no longer had to struggle with pain and discomfort and was now able to live her life to the fullest.
