But not everybody is as lucky as you are and one such person is Salma. Her husband Md. Imtiyaz got diagnosed with oral cancer about 11 months ago. He used to work at a garbage dump yard for a meagre salary of Rs. 2000.00 (27 USD approx.) per month. Now his health has deteriorated so much that he is not able to continue his work.
His wife Salma works at our place as a housemaid. It is needless to say that their combined salary wasn’t enough to afford the treatment that a disease like cancer requires and now that he has lost his job Salma is struggling to make ends meet let alone bear the cost of the treatment.
Salma has gone from door to door to collect money for the treatment and combined that with whatever little savings she had and managed to arrange 6 chemotherapy sessions for her husband. So, far she has spent about Rs. 2 lakhs (2718 USD approx.) on chemotherapy sessions and medicines. Now her supply of funds has dried up and she is not able to afford any further treatment because of which her husband missed his last chemotherapy session which was due on 7th December 2020.
When a wife prays for her husband’s death whom she loves so much we know that she has lost all hope and it is in your power to give her hope back.
Salma started working at our place when I was in 6th grade and now I am working as an engineer after completing my master’s. So, I have known Salma for over 16 years and I truly believe that she is a good person who deserves our fullest support.
Your support means a lot.
