More Info

Waseem Dominic is 36 years old now, born of poor parents namely Dominic Masih and Nasreen Bibi. Mr.Dominic is a painter who works on daily wages. In spite, of his old age, he still works to pay for his son's dialysis. Waseem's mother is a housewife and a sugar patient. Though, she does not do any job but plays an important part in Waseem’s daily life.

ABOUT WASEEM'S SICKNESS:

One cold night of 23 December, 2011, two nights before Christmas, he felt some chest pain and breathing problem. His family took him to a nearby doctor. At midnight, when the pain got worse, Waseem was taken to a Private Kidney Hospital where he had been diagnosed with kidney failure. It was a bolt from the sky for the poor family. Since Waseem is a very nice person, his friends came forward at this difficult time and helped his family financially and by donating blood for him. The poor family sold everything in the house to save his life. Though Waseem's family saved his life they were unaware of the misery and pain they had to go through every third day in terms of his Dialysis.

In the beginning, Waseem was provided free Dialysis facility every third by the District Headquarters Hospital,(Government Hospital) Okara.Though no Dialysis Fee was charged, but the family had to spend money for his transportation,food during his stay at the hospital and to buy Dialysis related items (Filters, Medical Tape, injection, Waste fluid container) from the market. In Fact, it is the responsibility of the Government Hospitals to provide all these things, but sadly it does not happen in Pakistan.

A few years later, it became worst when Waseem was diagnosed with Hepatitis B. District Headquarters Hospital, Okara refused to provide Dialysis Treatment as there was no separate Dialysis Machine for the patients of Hepatitis B.

ONE TIME DIALYSIS FEE AND OTHER EXPENDITURES:

Besides, Government Medical Centres, there are only few Private Dialysis Centres which charge very high Fee. Unable to pay their high fee, Waseem's family found a Welfare Hospital namely “Hadi Jod Welfare Trust Hospital” where his family pays only PKR 1000. Besides this, Waseem also has to buy Dialysis related items and also pay for transportation. One time Dialysis costs him PKR 4,000 (US$ 20) and for a week it is PKR 8,000 (US $ 40). It’s a huge problem for a poor family to arrange 4,000 every third day. Sometimes, his family stays hungry to save money for his Dialysis. When the family finds difficult to arrange money, his mother begs it from the people of the street. COVID 19 has added more afflictions to this poor family. To cut into short, it has been seen that his father wishes his death so other family members may get food and do not suffer because of him.

For one week = US $ 40

For one month= US $ 160

For a year= US $ 1920

WASEEM'S PHYSICAL CONDITION:

Waseem has become very weak as he has been living almost for 9 years on Dialysis. He can not do any physical work or job to support himself due to his weakness. He totally depends upon his family for all his medical needs. He wants to work but doctors have warned him that his FISTULAS in his both arms can burst or stop working.

Goal:

My goal is to provide Waseem Dominic financial assistance at least for the year 2020-21, so that his other family members do not starve and stay hungry.

Words of Gratitude:

Waseem and his family will be forever grateful to you all for supporting them and helping them to see Waseem living alive. I really appreciate your support and generosity for Blessings Waseem Dominic.

Big Thank you.
