A 9-year-old girl from Pakistan has been suffering from a rare condition that causes her neck to be bent at 90-degree angle (permanently). Afhseen Qumbar, from Pakistan’s Singh province, has a muscular disorder which means she cannot keep her head upright. Moreover, she even cannot stand or walk properly and is restricted to a sitting position.
Her father Allah Jurio and mother Jameelan have already consulted many doctors but have been told that treatment for such a condition is not available in Mithi. Jameelan said:
“It is devastating to see my daughter like this. I cannot see her suffer anymore. None of the doctors here could diagnose her condition.”
“They have advised us to take her to Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre in Karachi. But we do not have money or resources to a bigger hospital for treatment.”
When The Disorder Started?
Jameelan further added: “When she was eight months old, she fell on the ground while playing outside the house and got her neck hurt. We ignored her condition initially and due to lack of money we used to take her to a local faith healer but her condition never improved.”
“As she grows older, her problems became complicated. She isn’t able to keep her head upright at all and often complains of pain in the neck. She cannot do anything by herself and needs help in everything. She just sits in a corner and occasionally plays with her siblings.”
