2.OVER the last few days, I have met several patients from various villages in upper Sindh. An eight-month-old baby, diagnosed with a congenital heart condition, had difficulty breathing and was grossly underweight. A middle-aged woman had severe abdominal pain and swelling; she had tumors in her intestine. A young man had become totally blind over the last few months; his case was undiagnosed.
