Mussarat Bibi's Story
Mussarat Bibi was a 60-year-old patient from a small village in Karachi, belonging to a poor family. She had been struggling with an umbilical hernia for a long time. The constant pain and discomfort made it difficult for her to perform even the simplest of tasks. She consulted with her doctor and was advised to undergo surgery to correct the hernia, but she couldn’t afford it. She felt hopeless and helpless until she learned about Transparent Hands, an NGO known for its mission to provide healthcare to underprivileged communities in Pakistan.
Mussarat Bibi approached Transparent Hands for help, and from the first moment, she felt their empathy and kindness. The team listened to her story, understood her situation, and immediately began working on finding a solution to her problem. She was then admitted to United Hospital on 8th November for general surgery to repair her umbilical hernia, performed by the experienced surgeon Dr. Shumaila Ayub on 12th November.
The surgery was a success and Mussarat Bibi recovered well, being discharged just two days after the surgery, on 14th November. The entire experience was emotional for Mussarat Bibi, as she couldn’t believe how Transparent Hands changed her life. She felt like a weight had been lifted off her shoulders and was finally able to see a brighter future ahead of her. She no longer had to struggle with pain and discomfort and was now able to live her life to the fullest.
