SUCCESS STORY OF MRS. KARAM BIBI
A 76 year old lady, Mrs. Karam Bibi lives in Village Soomar Soomro Union Council Mubarkpur Taluka Thull District Jacobabad Sindh 45 km far from the Jacobabad city and 20 kilometers far from Thul Taluka Head Quarter. She become ill 3 – 4 months back and has been bed-ridden for the past 3 months. She is unable to walk, sit or change her position in the bed and was very malnourished. Actually, she had a fall as she tried to escape the flood waters. No fracture was seen, but due to pain, weakness, psychological trauma and immobility she was confined to bed. One day, the Association for Humanitarian Development’s medical team visited our village and we sought advice from them. The team doctor listened to her story, gave her a thorough examination, prescribed medication and taught us how to do exercises with her that would help strengthen her body and encouraged the family to take turns sitting with her and cheering her up. After about 2 weeks we were very surprised to see the improvement in our grandmother. We had visited many doctors in Thull and Jacobabad but we hadn’t noticed any real change. But whatever medicines the AHD doctor gave her seems to have given her a new lease of life. Our grandmother is now able to sit up, go to the washroom (with support), has started eating again and has become her usual chatty self. We are deeply grateful to the Association for Humanitarian Development medical team for working this wonder. Our grandmother had almost given up all hope of getting better, not a day goes by without her saying a prayer for the team and the work they are doing for flood affected families. She is the joy of her grandchildren and they are hers.
