Shahana:(Not her real name)
Shahana aged 36 years, lives n Ballamjhar Upozilla, about 2 km away from Karmirhath Hospital. Her husband is a poor agriculture labor They have three kids. The kids are all school-going. The eldest kid, a girl, is a third grader. The second kid, also a girl, is a student of First Grade. The youngest kid, a boy is 6 months old.
Shahana developed diabetes a few years ago. Her husband could not manage any treatment for her illness apprehending that the treatment would be very costly.
A few months ago she learnt that Karmirhath hospital gives free treatment to poor diabetic patients. When Shahana reached our hospital, after a few tests, she was registered as a diabetic patient, given Guide Book and awareness instructions. She is now a regular visitor and her diabetes is now stabilized. She thanks Karmirhath and those who helps Karmirhath with funds.
I personally thank Global Giving Foundation for raising funds for Karmirhath. It is always a great help in deed.
