Surgery & Aid for 15 Year Pakistani Girl & Family


At age 5, Manahil received 2nd and 3rd degree burns from her neck below, due to an accident. Both her and her younger sister did not have the financial means to attend school, due to being brought up in a poor Christian family in Islamabad, Pakistan. Early this year, their father John, injured his back after falling and remains bedridden, whereas their mother Saima, is to become unemployed very soon. Uproot aims to provide surgery and support to the family in this dire time of need.

9 years ago, 5 year old Manahil, a Christian minor in Islamabad, Pakistan, received severe 2nd and 3rd degree burns as a result of an accident. After 3 surgeries, she still needs one more to save her breasts for a normal life. Both Manahil and her younger sister cannot afford to go to school due to family finances and social placement. Their father John, fell and injured his back earlier this year and cannot work, whereas their mother Saima is at the end of her work contract in the next 2 months


After confirming validity, Uproot has already made available a surgeon, & shall fund & oversee Manahil's surgery & rehabilitation. All the while Uproot aims to aid the 2 sisters in their pursuit of education to better their family's socio-economic status, by funding at least 1 year of their academic tuition & necessities, while the parents can recover both physically and financially from their current dire situation. Documents received from the family have been attached for convenience & proof

Long-Term Impact

Aside from just this deserving family,Uproot's vision is to change people's lives One by One. As of now, Uproot has helped 18 beneficiaries around the globe. For this young girl, this surgery & concomitant rehab will preserve the function of her breasts & improve her quality of life. But she is not the only one who would require our help. Uproot is dedicated to finding & assisting needy & unfortunate people like Manahil & her family & change their lives, one by one. Help us change another life.
