Both of her parents passed away and she is now alone with her two younger brothers. Her elder sisters are married and she is responsible for looking after her younger brothers. Her younger brother is still too young to work. Her ill health brought with it the added financial pressure of somehow paying for the treatment that she needed to survive. Her health was in a bad state and the financial burden was begging to build upon her when she found out about our Rehmat Medical Aid Kidney Care Centre.
She has since been receiving regular free dialyses and her health has dramatically improved.
She says her wish is that people provide support to the charity so that others in her situation can be helped as they have no alternative and no other place to go. She acknowledges that without the support of the generous people who support us her won situation would not be as positive as it is today.
She is a widows and a mother of 5. Her late husband was a truck driver who unfortunately died in a tragic accident 5 years ago. Having to now provide for her 5 children, Razia had to find employment as a cook and cleaner.
2 years ago she began to feel pains in her left kidney. Not being able to afford to go to a doctor and also not having permission to take a day off work she chose to ignore the pain.
After a week of her pain increasing and accumulating it caused her to faint while at work. She was sent to the local hospital with the help of her employer where she was diagnosed with kidney failure.
Her wage is 6000pkr (£35) a month. Kidney dialysis costs around £30 per treatment and most patients require on average 2 -3 sessions of dialysis a week. There was no way she would be able to afford the treatment and her future prospects were very bleak.
Thankfully she was referred to Rehmat Medical Aid and we were able to arrange for her to receive the treatment she requires free of cost.
She says ; ‘ It was only because of the Rehmat Medical Aid Kindey Care Centre that I am still alive today and able to work to provide for my family. I thank every single supporter of the charity.’ .
