Rakhema Bibi’s illness cost her everything. A 35 year old mother of four, she miscarried and lost her fifth child in the seventh month of her pregnancy due to high blood pressure. When she came to The Kidney Centre for treatment, doctors ran some tests and diagnosed her with renal failure. She is now dependent on dialysis for the rest of her life.
She used to live with her husband in Mansehra, but he left her a year ago after finding out about her disease. She and her children now live with her father in Karachi, who is jobless and now bears the responsibility of looking after two unmarried daughters.
Please donate generously to support Rakhema’s treatment – she needs dialysis thrice a week to survive.
