UM Healthcare Trust sustains Kidney patient

“We were extremely relieved to see our daughter getting better after so much suffering and I prayed to God for her long life”, reflects Hina’s father.

For six year old Hina Akram from Sadiqabad, Mardan, life changed when she was diagnosed with renal failure in April 2004. Unlike her peers in the village who have hardly seen life outside their neighborhood, Hina now visited nephrologists in the city often. There she received medication to ameliorate her pain and to treat her oedema, insufficient growth and other symptoms. Her father, Muhammad Akram, began to worry about his finances while he struggled to provide his daughter the expensive but necessary healthcare.

In June 2007 Hina’s health deteriorated as she developed severe right kidney dysfunction. This was an extremely difficult time for her and her family but fortunately, their ordeal soon ended at The Kidney Center in Rawalpindi where she was one of the lucky few to receive a free successful kidney transplant. She stayed in the hospital for sixteen days and was discharged with immunosuppressive therapy.

Hina continued to receive immunosuppressive therapy for the next five months until it had to be gradually reduced to curb opportunistic infections like pneumonia which she had contracted by now.Hina’s condition has improved since then. Today, she manages to lead a normal life under the influence of medicines.

UM Healthcare Trust has taken the responsibility of paying Hina’s medical bills since 2009. She and her family continue to vest hope in UM Trust and its Hospital to provide effective healthcare to rural Mardan. As the year draws to a close, the trust is proud to have helped with the valued support of its donors.
