Ubaid Ullah 's Story
Ubaid Ullah, a brave three-year-old from Sargodha, has been fighting against life-threatening heart defects since the day he was born. However, his family’s financial constraints posed an insurmountable obstacle, preventing them from affording the crucial open-heart surgery that could save his life. With each passing day, Ubaid Ullah’s heart conditions, including Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA), ventricular septal defect, and Right Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction (RVOTO), threatened to lead him down a perilous path of heart failure, heart blocks, and pulmonary hypertension.
The signs of his deteriorating health were evident—shortness of breath, cyanosis, recurrent chest infections, and stunted physical growth. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, Ubaid Ullah’s family sought the expertise of a cardiologist who recommended angiography as a crucial diagnostic step, followed by an urgent CP Shunt through open-heart surgery to address the multiple complex heart conditions plaguing the young child.
However, the financial burden of treating Ubaid Ullah’s condition weighed heavily on his family, as their savings fell far short of covering the exorbitant costs associated with the necessary surgery. Exhausted both mentally and physically, his parents turned to Transparent Hands.
The relentless dedication of Transparent Hands and the unwavering support of the donors propelled Ubaid Ullah’s case to the renowned Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore. On September 18, 2023, Dr. Asim Khan, performed the life-saving procedure. Through a median sternotomy, atrial septectomy, and right CP Shunt, Dr. Khan skillfully addressed the intricate complexities within Ubaid Ullah’s heart. The surgery was a resounding success.
Ubaid Ullah’s hospital stay lasted six days, during which he received exceptional care and support from the dedicated staff at Ittefaq Hospital.
