ISLAMABAD - An Afghan citizen has been living under the open sky in the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) since the last five months to get treated his cancer-affected son, and has pinned high hopes from the Afghan Embassy for help. Although Abdul Habib is keeping two written applications with him all the time but not being familiar to the city he has failed to submit the applications to the Afghan Embassy and Bait-ul-Mal as well. Spending his nights and days under the tree for the last five months, Abdul Habib father of the four year old boy Khalid Daad brought his son all the way from Mazar Sharif Afghanistan to the PIMS. Still I do not have any idea how long I have to stay in Pakistan due to the prolonged illness of my son, I cannot go back and leave my wife and son alone in the hospital, said Abdul Habib with tears rolling down his cheeks. While talking to TheNation Abdul Habib said that due to the kind-hearted doctors of the PIMS, his son is being treated well, but the treatment is very expensive and besides that he also needs something for his wife and nine months old daughter. The strict hospital administration does not allow his wife to keep the nine months old daughter with her inside the ward, so Abdul Habib also takes care of the baby girl. Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences is a tertiary hospital that caters to patients all the way from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir to NWFP, even patients from Afghanistan are referred to this hospital. Contrary to their claims, the American forces and their allies have failed to provide even basic facilities to the Afghans during the course of their occupation. Earlier the child had tumours in both his eyes; he was operated in Afghanistan and his right eye was removed but still he could not be cured and his sufferings continued. Later, on recommendations of Afghani doctors, he was brought to Pakistan and he was admitted in the PIMS. According to the doctors the four years old boy is suffering from bilateral interlobular mass with retinal detachment in left eye. Friends of Children Hospital have established a serai but the poor man is so helpless that he cannot even afford the rent of that Serai which is Rs 10. Even this amount is too hefty for me so I prefer to live outside under this tree, explained Abdul Habib meekly. A large number of people whose relives are admitted in the hospital are compelled to live outside in the hospital lawn. The Serais accommodation is limited to about 40 adults at any given time.
