This request is being written in extreme desperation for help. This Eight years old girl, Shabnum, has PULMONARY TUBERCULOSIS. She was taken to A&E of Aga Khan University Hospital Karachi today, 11/09/13 at 11:38am, with Tuberculoma with Seizure. Doctors have intimated that she requires immediate medical attention in Special Care Unit; otherwise, the situation might get even worse.
However, the money required for this is beyond her parents reach, as they don’t have much savings. Her father is a gatekeeper and mother works as a housemaid (pictures attached); their total monthly income is 9000 rupees, ($ 86) per month. They have 3 children and live in box room. Times have become very harsh for her family that her 16 years old brother, Asif, is doing labour jobs for 3000 rupees, ($ 29) per month, in the hope that his sister gets better.
