Please help Afsheen get a neck surgery.

12 year old girl is desperately waiting for life-changing surgery after a mysterious condition has left her head bent at a 90° angle. Afsheen Kumbar is thought to suffer from a muscular disorder that has caused her to develop a severely twisted neck, known medically as Torticollis. Afsheen is one of six children of a family in Pakistan who was born healthy. At eight months, she fell while playing outside and injured her neck. Unable to keep her head upright, Afsheen lives in constant pain, which leaves her struggling to eat, use the toilet and even walk. Afsheen's condition also stops her from going to to school, with her spending her days at home in Mithi in Sindh, Pakistan, with her mother Jameelan, 55, and eldest brother, Yaqoob Kunbhar, 25 With doctors baffled as to what is causing Afsheen's bent neck, the family have no idea what the future holds for her. The family are unable to pay for surgery to help Afsheen after her father died of cancer in 2018, forcing them to live on Jameelan's salary of £60 ($74) a year while she works as 'domestic help'. Speaking of his sister's condition, Yaqoob said: 'We are worried for her future. We do not know what will happen to her. We are anxious that if she is left untreated, she could develop some other disease.' Left untreated, the constant tension caused by Torticollis can cause the muscles in the neck to swell and pressure to be put on the nerve roots. This has been linked to degenerative spine disease, which occurs when the discs between the vertebrae break down. Due to their limited funds, they eventually took her to a local faith healer, but it did nothing to help.
