Muktamoni to return home soon: Nasim

Health Minister Mohammed Nasim has said Muktamoni will return home with her parents soon as her physical condition has improved.


"Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is taking care of Muktamoni regularly. She (Muktamoni) will return home with her parents within a few days as her physical condition is now well," the minister said while visiting Muktamoni at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Thursday.


Nasim said, "Our physicians are giving services cordially despite limited resources. Young and experienced doctors are proving their talents in this regard".


They also became successful in carrying out complicated treatments, including surgical operations on Tofa-Tahura, he added.


The minister hoped that the people would get better services after completing construction work of Sheikh Hasina National Burn Institute in Chankharpool in the city, reports BSS.


Nasim thanked the newsmen and said the doctors got inspiration from responsible role of the media people.


Dr Samanta Lal Sen, coordinator of National Burn and Plastic Surgery Institute at DMCH, said medical services are provided in Bangladesh at cheaper costs than abroad.


"It is possible to ensure better health care services, if facilities for doctors are increased," he added.


Muktamoni, a 10-year-old girl of Kamarbaisa village in Satkhira sadar upazila, was admitted to the hospital on July 11 with a malignant growth on her right arm. And a series of surgical operations were carried out without amputation of her affected hand.


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina took the responsibility of the treatment of Muktamoni.


According to her father Ibrahim, a grocery shop owner, Muktamoni and her twin sister Hiramoni were a pair of healthy baby girls during their birth but a wart appeared on her right arm when Muktamoni was about 18-month-old.
