Tabassum Wakil was born with a birth defect of the Spinal cord called Spina bifida and has a serious problem with the control of her urine and stool(incontinence). She had a bad odour because of a Urinary tract infection, so other children started avoiding her.

The estimate expenses for this operation is about Rs. 300,000/- (all inclusive in concessional class)
