Kalsoom Bibi's Story
Kulsoom Bibi, a 32-year-old woman from the small village of Surjani Town in Karachi, was faced with a difficult situation. Belonging to a poor family, she was 7 months pregnant and in dire need of a Caesarean section, but could not afford the cost of the surgery. Her only hope was Transparent Hands, a renowned NGO in Pakistan that provides free medical camps and surgeries to underprivileged communities.
Kulsoom approached Transparent Hands, who immediately took action and arranged for her to be admitted to United Hospital on November 12th. There, she was under the care of Dr. Saba Pario, a highly skilled and experienced surgeon who performed the C-section. On November 12th, Kulsoom gave birth to a healthy baby boy. She and her baby both recovered well and were discharged from the hospital on November 14th, 2022.
Kulsoom and her family were overjoyed with the successful delivery and couldn’t express their gratitude enough to Transparent Hands for their help. She shared that without the support of Transparent Hands, she would have been unable to afford the surgery and may not have been able to have a safe delivery.
