A Little Special Care



Every so often we come across a patient whose need goes beyond the care that our facilities can provide.SHINE Humanity adopts these patients under the banner of “Special Patients”.
Shabana is a six year-old burn victim. She comes from a family of 15 people, and they all live in a one room tent.   SHINE Humanity is helping care for Shabana’s medical needs, but we are also helping to rebuild the family home as a safe and hygienic environment will contribute to Shabana’s recovery as well.
Mohammed Saeed Awan is  on a a weekly dialysis routine, but he needs a kidney transplant. Mohammed’s family members wanted to donate, but they were either too weak or did not match his blood group. In addition the surgery can only be done in Karachi, but Mohammed resides in Kashmir. SHINE Humanity has stepped in by helping Mohammed’s father, so that he will be healthy enough to donate to his son. SHINE is also covering the cost of accommodation, food and transport for Mohammed, and some of his family members to Karachi.
Qavi Khan is a nine month old boy from Kashmir who has a hole in his heart. Qavi requires surgery, but he is too weak to survive the trauma of surgery. Unfortunately poor living conditions and severe weather have worsened Qavi’s health and he suffers from pneumonia.  SHINE Humanity doctors are monitoring Qavi’s condition and providing him with medicines and nutritional milk, so that he becomes strong enough for heart surgery.
Nausheen is a paraplegic who lost the use of her lower limbs when she was shot in the spine. The injury not only left her paralyzed, but emotionally scarred. SHINE Humanity is helping Nausheen with her medical needs. We have also given her a job as a receptionist in our office in Islamabad. The joy that she gets from her work helps her physically and emotionally far more than any medical aid.
