Arfa Ahsan's Story

Arfa awaits Cochlear Implant Surgery. Before you read the heartbreaking facts of Arfa Ahsan’s tale, keep in mind that your donations can help her discover a whole new world. Your contributions, no matter how small, will make a significant difference in her life. So, we respectfully urge that you please donate for her cause.

Arfa Ahsan, a six years old Faisalabad native, has not been able to fully enjoy her childhood. Asmal has Congenital Sensorineural Hearing Loss (CSHL). Her parents observed that she was not responding or reacting to sounds when she was only a year old. Later she developed an ear infection. They took her to a local hospital. An ENT specialist suggested some tests to evaluate the cause. After the test reports came, the doctor recommended that they get her a hearing aid, which they couldn’t afford. Her hearing sensitivity could not develop. Following a second consultation, the doctor recommended that they get Arfa a Cochlear Implant. A cochlear implant receives sound from the outside environment, processes it, and sends small electric currents near the auditory nerve. These electric currents activate the nerve, which then sends a signal to the brain. The brain learns to recognize this signal and the person experiences this as “hearing”.

Arfa’s father is a rickshaw driver and barely makes enough money to support his family. Being the sole earner in the family and raising a family of seven in this meager income is difficult enough for him. The expense of this procedure is extremely expensive for him. He has no friends or family who can help him financially. Arfa’s father expressed his grievances to Transparent Hands:

“It brings tears to my eyes to see my daughter miss out on her childhood due to her hearing impairment. Transparent Hands brought me and my wife some hope.”

Fortunately for Arfa, she has now been connected with Transparent Hands, and we are committed to assisting her and restoring her sense of hearing. That being said, without your generous support, this will not be possible. As Arfa awaits Cochlear Implant Surgery, we strongly urge you to contribute as much as possible to Arfa’s Cochlear Implant Surgery.
