HELP CHILDREN ACCESS SURGERIES TO HELP THEM EAT AGAIN - URGENT MEDICAL EQUIPMENT NEEDED IN PAKISTAN Photo

The Story

The American Pakistan Foundation (APF) needs your help to provide the Children’s Hospital, Lahore with critical medical equipment for over 300 children with closed jaws. These young patients are currently unable to eat solid food and are surviving on a liquid diet. They need your help to receive essential surgeries which will treat this debilitating medical condition, so that they will once again be able to partake in the joy of eating solid foods and have access to additional surgeries which will further improve their quality of life. One of the most common medical conditions amongst young children which is not being treated at present in Lahore is TMJ ankylosis, a condition that is easily treated with surgery in developed countries.

 

You are invited to start your own individual or team online campaign page part of this fundraiser by clicking on "Set Up Your Fundraiser" under donate that you can share with your friends, family and colleagues by email and on social media.

 

Here are two testimonials of families waiting for their child to receive surgery at Lahore Children's Hospital (videos to come): 

 

Story: This lady's son can't eat the simplest of foods, a condition he has suffered from since he was a toddler. They have been searching for treatment for many years and hope to get help as soon as possible at Children's Hospital Lahore.

 

Story: This father expresses his concern for his child who has not been able to open his mouth to chew properly for almost six years now. He has been bringing his only son to Children's Hospital Lahore for almost six months now, in hope that his son will recieve the care he needs.
