Maryam Bibi's Story
Maryam Bibi, a resilient 39-year-old resident of Lasbela, has been locked in a painful battle with cholelithiasis, a condition characterized by the presence of gallstones, for the past five years. Residing in a village where medical facilities are scarce, Maryam’s journey to find suitable treatment has been hindered by challenges. However, her strength and resilience to find a solution to overcome her pain have compelled her to find the courage to travel to a local hospital in a nearby city, where dedicated doctors closely examined her case. Their examination confirmed her worst fears – she was diagnosed with symptomatic gallstones, a condition that required immediate attention. A doctor recommended a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, a surgical procedure aimed at removing her gallbladder to alleviate her suffering and prevent potential complications.
Caught in a desperate situation with limited financial resources, Maryam Bibi reached out to Transparent Hands, promptly registered her case, and embarked on a mission to raise the necessary funds for her surgery.
Through the unwavering support and compassion of anonymous donors, we successfully secured the required funds, offering Maryam a ray of hope amidst her distress. With the financial burden lifted, Maryam was admitted to Murshid Hospital, Karachi, where the highly skilled surgeon, Dr. Nida, performed her laparoscopic cholecystectomy on 18-09-2023.
The surgical procedure was a resounding success, as Dr. Nida expertly removed Maryam’s gallbladder, effectively eliminating the source of her pain and discomfort. Throughout her stay at Murshid Hospital, Maryam received exceptional care from the medical staff, who demonstrated remarkable empathy and professionalism. After just one day of post-operative observation, she was deemed fit for discharge, signifying her remarkable recovery.
Through the combined efforts of Transparent Hands and the compassionate donors who selflessly contributed to her cause, Maryam’s life has been forever changed. Maryam and her family extend their deepest gratitude to all the generous donors who played a pivotal role in her journey to recovery.
