Having born and lived her entire life in Mian Chunnu, Sharifan is a 62 year old woman and she had a tragic life. From very early on, she lost her father, her mother fell very ill and she took on the responsibility to look after her despite having 4 brothers, and the untimely death of her husband in an accident left her as the only guardian for their child. Sharifan worked at a factory close to her home for 15 years before her son was old enough to work and joined her as a laborer. Although the pay was scanty, the security and consistency of work made Sharifan and her son stick to the familiar ground.
However, with the passage of time and the hardships she has had to endure, Sharifan’s vision gradually decreased. She visited a local ophthalmologist, who diagnosed her with cataract and suggested surgery. But the cost of surgery he had quoted was too high for the simple laborers to be able to afford. One of her brothers visited her and told her that two years ago he had had a similar problem for which he had been operated at LRBT Khanewal without spending a penny. He advised her to visit LRBT Khanewal to get treated. She visited LRBT Khanewal and after proper examination, was booked for cataract surgery.
She was very happy to come out of such misery after regaining her vision and was very excited to be able to fulfill her responsibilities again. Grateful, she was giving her blessings to LRBT team and its donors who make life a little easier for those who have no one else to depend on.
