Abdullah Khan's Story
When Abdullah visited our office, we were awestruck by his brilliant sparkling eyes. When his mother started talking, he looked at her, and his sheepish smile indicated that he cannot hear or understand anything. Your donations can acquaint Abdullah with the world of sound. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Abdullah’s cochlear implant as much as you can.
Three years old Abdullah Khan suffers from congenital Sensorineural Hearing loss. Having sensorineural hearing loss means there is damage either to the tiny hair cells in your inner ear (known as stereocilia) or to the nerve pathways that lead from your inner ear to the brain. It normally affects both ears.
Now, cochlear implant surgery is the only option for a permanent cure. It is a surgically implanted neuroprosthetic device that will give Abdullah a modified sense of sound. Unfortunately, Abdullah’s parents cannot afford the hefty cost of the surgery. Abdullah’s father is the sole earner of the family. He works at Pakistan Railways, and he hardly manages to earn PKR 26000 per month. With a family of seven members to raise, he is in no position to arrange for Abdullah’s cochlear implant. Abdullah’s mother told us:
“My son is very intelligent. I know it in my heart. Even if he cannot speak, he picks on cues and replies through his gestures, his smile, his sparkling eyes. Whoever is reading this, I request you to please help my son hear the sounds of life.”
With the help of their doctor, Abdullah’s parents have registered their case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to get Abdullah happy and healthy as soon as possible. But, we need your help with that. Your donation, however small they may be, will give Abdullah the sense of sound. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Abdullah’s Cochlear Implant as much as you can.
