Muhammad Momin's Story
Momin, a one-year-old resident of Lahore, has been grappling with shortness of breath, cyanosis, and an inability to gain weight since birth. Concerned about their child’s health, his parents sought medical help at a local hospital. Following a series of diagnostic tests and evaluations, Momin received a devastating diagnosis of complex congenital heart conditions, including Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and Major Aortopulmonary Collateral Arteries (MAPCA). The only viable solution to save Momin’s life was Open-Heart Surgery for total correction, as advised by the cardiac surgeon.
However, the financial burden of Momin’s surgery proved to be overwhelming for his father, whose limited income made it impossible to afford the hefty cost of the cardiac procedure. Desperate for a solution, Momin’s family reached out to Transparent Hands, submitting the necessary documents and registering his case.
Thanks to the invaluable support of Transparent Hands, Momin was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore. On October 9, 2023, Dr. Asim Khan skillfully performed the surgery, which involved median sternotomy, VSD closure, LPA plasty, and RVOTO resection. Throughout his ten-day hospital stay, Momin received comprehensive care, ensuring a successful and smooth recovery.
This remarkable success story underscores the indispensable role played by Transparent Hands, whose support and generous contributions made a life-changing difference for Momin and his family. Their financial assistance alleviated the overwhelming burden faced by the family, enabling Momin to receive the life-saving treatment he desperately needed.
The support from the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation and the compassionate donors not only granted Momin a second chance at life but also brought hope and inspiration to his family. Their acts of kindness and compassion exemplify the remarkable impact that can be achieved when individuals unite to make a difference. Their collective acts of kindness exemplify the limitless capacity of individuals to transform lives and inspire positive change.
