About the Project
“Waking up every morning, and before I sleep every night, I imagine that a Messiah will come and help me get rid of this illness.
It has been now been about 5 years since I have been diagnosed with Facial Paralysis. It has damaged my facial nerves and deformed my entire face. My husband is 58 and doesn’t have the money to pay for my operation. He took me to Pakistan for treatment where doctors said that I have to deposit four thousand dollars, in order to receive the complete... treatment. As proud as I am of my daughters, every time I am reminded of our economic instability, I can do nothing but wish I had a son.
We have knocked the government’s door already, but we didn’t succeed in getting any assistance. It seems as though the government has left the stabilization process of the important matters, for the end of time. I can’t eat, drink, or complete any other daily routine properly. At times, showing my face and simply meeting new people is rough. I wonder how long more I will live this way, it has ruined my entire life.”
