Kahlil Gibran said, “Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.”
Children are like angels, so pure, so fragile and the innocence that makes your heart melt. Most people say children have the heart of gold, and that is true as they forgive and forget easily, yet they have the dreams that fly higher than the birds. Mamoona abdul ghaffar was a child with the same dreams, but those dreams were pulverized by the acid attack. At the age of just 12 all her dreams were blurred by the sickening attack, as it almost melted her left eye. She was brought to Depilex Smileagain and for more than 5 years she has gone through numerous surgeries for the reconstruction of her eye
In the recent two surgeries the socket to hold the eye shell was constructed followed by reconstruction of the eyelid. With the blessings of Allah Almighty, support of Depilex Smileagain and professional competence of Dr Yawar, Plastic Surgeon General Hospital, Lahore the surgeries have been done successfully. Her eyelids (upper and lower) have been reconstructed with a clear structure of socket where a delicate soft acrylic eye shell has been placed matching with her other eye with the help Dr Mohammad Jahangir..
Along with the treatment she is also sponsored by DSF to complete a course in nursing, from Karachi School of Nursing. DSF keeps a liaison with her teachers and schedules the surgeries according to availability of her due leaves.
