Farishta

Farishta

The urdu word “Farishta” means Angel. We at CCH had the opportunity to treat an angel in face of a 6 year old girl from Afghanistan named Farishta. Farishta belongs to a village near the Mazar Sharif City. Her father works in Iran while the other members of family do the farming on a small piece of land near their house to make the money for the family. She came to Pakistan with her mother and grandfather in early 2012. Prior to that, they went through to many hospitals in Kabul to find out the reasons for Farishta’s weakness and continuous decline in health. Some relative advised them to visit CCH and according to her grandfather who only speaks Persian, the road to recovery has been a smooth one. He says that they couldn’t even afford a normal disease let alone something like cancer. CCH has given them full financial and moral support they required for Farishta.
Farishta was in 1st grade at school when she left it due to her illness but her grandfather believes she would go back to school and follow her dream of higher studies. The hope that comes out of this angel’s eyes is what inspires everyone around her. Her grandfather says he prays all the time for the success of the Children Cancer Hospital that ALLAH gives it prosperity and unmatched success.
It is obviously the prayers and the support from our well wishers that engineers our hefty expenses in curing the childhood cancer patients. Keep supporting our mission. Click here to know the ways to help.
