Azlan Awaits Cochlear Implant Surgery
Muhammad Azlan 's Story
Azlan has grown up in a world of silence. He suffers from social isolation as a result of his hearing loss. There’s a surgical treatment for his defect, but his family cannot afford to pay for it due to financial constraints. You can give him the gift of hearing with your generous donations, and his family will remember your generosity their whole lives. Azlan awaits cochlear implant surgery to bring joy to his life.
Five-year-old Azlan, a resident of Sukkur, has been suffering from congenital sensorineural hearing loss. His parents realized he was not responding to their voices when he was a year old and were concerned. His parents took him to the local hospital, where his tests were done. Upon consultation, he was diagnosed with sensorineural hearing loss. The doctor advised him to undergo cochlear implant surgery. A cochlear implant is a small electronic device used to electrically stimulate the cochlear nerve (hearing nerve). The implant has external and internal parts. The external portion is attached behind the ear. It processes the sounds using a microphone before transmitting them to the implant’s internal component.
He lives in a rented house with his parents and four siblings. His father is the only breadwinner in the family and earns PKR 15,000 per month. His father’s financial position won’t allow him to pay for the surgical expenses. He said it in a despairing tone.
“The treatment necessary for our son to regain his hearing is extremely costly. We want our son to listen to our voices and play like every other child his age. However, this hearing defect is causing him a lot of stress. Please help us.”
His father contacted Transparent Hands to register his son’s case. Azlan awaits cochlear implant surgery to discover the world of sounds. We urge you to donate generously to his surgery to help him communicate with his loved ones.
