Story


Imagine the pain of a person who lost his parents at a very young age. His shoulder was overburdened with responsibilities at an age when most children lead a carefree life. But unfortunately, this was not the end of his tales of woes. Life turned upside down when he had to deal with his worsening disease, and his brother abandoned him, taking away his share of the property. As a result, he is forced to live in a small rented house with his wife and children.

Shakib is suffering from Neurofibromatosis. It is a rare condition that causes tumours to form in the brain, spinal cord and nerves. It is a known cause of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. In addition, learning disabilities are a common problem.  


31-year-old Shakib is living a tough life with his bizarre face weighing down. A considerable lump weighing down, stretching his eye, lips and ear skin, takes away his confidence. As a result, he cannot see and hear clearly from the left side. He finds it challenging to eat and speak properly. In addition, his ear always smells terrible because of the infection. Furthermore, his whole back is filled with blister-like lumps. Therefore he needs immediate treatment.

"I am tired of living a terrible life. I am unable to eat, hear and see correctly. Nobody gives me work because of my face. Every time I do heavy work, my face swells up. I am overburdened with responsibilities. I am afraid if I die, who will look after my wife and children." Shakib


Poor Shakib works as a labourer despite his health condition to feed his wife and children. He lost his work for the last four months because of his worsening health condition. He was the breadwinner carrying the burden of five family members and his long-time ailment. His wife, Rukhsar, is a housewife worried about Shakib's worsening health and her children.

"Abba, what is wrong with your face? Our friends make fun of us because of you.'' Shakib's children question their father as their friends make fun of them because of Shakib's health condition.


One surgery can cure Shakib and help him lead a healthy life. But their poverty comes in the way. Will you help Shakib lead a happy and healthy life?
