As I logged in my Facebook account, I was astonished with what I saw. My panting body froze making me feel every drop of blood that rushed through the veins. $500,000 was certainly a very big amount; but is it more important than a human life? Certainly No!
They say, make the most of your lives because you don’t even know whether you’ll be to see the next day or not. This however, does not mean that spend your time partying, drinking, relaxing, and simply chilling. Life is not only about this; it has more to it. I ask, what is the purpose of your life? How about we join our hands together and say ‘doing good’ is our current goal in life? This will not only help the ones in need and bless you in a number of ways, but it will definitely attract others to participate in this drive. Little Maira is suffering from Cystic Fibrosis and is in a dire need for a lung transplant. She lives in Pakistan; a place that does not treat such illnesses. Consequently, she needs to travel to London for her transplant and for this; she needs to generate a hefty amount of $500,000. It may seem impractical where the ultimate aim will miss the shot, but it is not impossible.
In a huge population that lives below poverty line, fate often plays a tricky role leaving our lives in a dilemma. But if our lives were devoid of such hardships, it would have no meaning. Today, life has given us a reason to unite. Pakistan may not be able to give her another lung, but the country still has that rigor and empathy that runs in the blood of its citizens. Quaid-e-Azam may have laid the principles of unity, faith, and discipline several years ago, but today, he certainly succeeded in having a nation that has that strength to unite and help each other.
I request all of you to help this girl. Even a single penny can make a difference. It doesn’t matter where you live, or to which caste you belong, the aim is to save this girl- to save humanity. It is time to stand up and make a move instead of blaming the government or the society for the haywire. It is your chance to make things right!
