[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Tehmina Durrani Foundation aspires to see Pakistan as a welfare state one day. Basic health facilities and education is every civilian’s fundamental right and TDF works to ensure that.
Tehmina Durrani Foundation collaborated with the Government of Punjab to help aid those who were in dire need of immediate health care and medical supervision. The Edhi Foundation also contributed to this noble affair by providing with instant and efficient ambulance services to the patients in need. This contribution was free of cost and is utterly appreciated.
All other medical facilities provided to patients by TDF were also completely free of cost.
The patients were provided with all kinds of medical treatments and included more than 70 chronic cases among which were some who required liver transplants and bone marrows. Furthermore, almost half of the patients were children under 15 years of age going through life threatening medical conditions and underwent successful heart surgeries.
One such case of successful medical sponsorship by TDF is that of a 11 years old boy, Muhammad.
Muhammad was born to a less fortunate family that resided in Gujranwala. He was in dire need of a liver transplant and his condition worsened each day. His parents failed to provide him with the required medical treatment due to insufficient financial means and he was therefore adopted by his aunt and brought to Lahore for treatment. Tehmina Durrani came across his case during her visit to Services Hospital and after seeing his extremely needful condition, took it upon herself to save this young boy’s life.
Soon after, Muhammad was sent to India for his liver transplant, a trip that was wholly sponsored by TDF. A total of 3.4 lakh rupees were spent on his treatment by the Tehmina Durrani Foundation and his transplant was a success by the grace of God.
Unnamed is another case when God willingly, TDF could help save the life of this six months old child. This was a rare case of “Situs Inversus” where two of the chambers of the heart — the right and left ventricle — were hooked up and pumping to the wrong parts of ______ body.
The right ventricle was performing the duties typically performed by the left ventricle and vice versa. _______’s father was tailor and only earning the minimum amount to keep the family alive and surviving. The treatment of his child was rather costly for him to bear and therefore, TDF, took upon the case. _____ underwent a major heart surgery and approximately 7 to 8 lakhs were spent on his/her condition.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner]
