Rehana Bibi's Story
Rehana Aftab Ahmed, a resilient 49-year-old resident of Baldia Town, Karachi, had been enduring the distress and discomfort caused by a paraumbilical hernia, which had significantly impacted her daily life. The visible abdominal swelling and persistent pressure reminded her daily of the urgent need for medical intervention to prevent potential complications like strangulation and bowel obstruction.
However, the financial strain weighed heavily on Rehana’s shoulders, rendering the necessary hernioplasty surgery beyond her reach. Yet, within her struggle, hope was found in the form of Transparent Hands and she contacted us for financial aid.
