Dua Fatima's Story
It breaks our hearts to see bright children who are hearing-impaired and cannot articulate their feelings. Dua is one such little girl. You can assist Dua in discovering the world of sounds. Please donate for Dua’s Cochlear Implant surgery as much as you can.
Dua Fatima, a five-year-old resident of Meyanwali, has been suffering from sensorineural hearing loss since she was born. Her parents were initially unaware of her illness. They took her to the hospital and the doctor advised that she should obtain a hearing aid. However, her parents could not afford it. The doctor has now advised Dua to undergo Cochlear Implant surgery as a long-term treatment. Dua will be able to gain the sense of hearing thanks to a medically inserted neuroprosthetic device.
Dua’s parents, unfortunately, cannot afford to get her a Cochlear Implant as it is very expensive. Dua’s father is a construction worker. Despite working long hours and putting in a lot of effort, he only makes PKR 13,000 every month. This income is hardly sufficient to support the family. As a result, he is unable to save money for his daughter’s surgery. Dua’s father explained to us:
“When I see my kid struggling to communicate even the most basic things, it crushes my heart. I want her to be able to live her life like all the other kids who don’t have to deal with this problem. I want her to go to school and be successful. Please help my daughter.”
Dua’s parents have registered her case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to help her. However, it will not be possible without the support of generous donors like you. Only you can help her like a normal and healthy life. Donate for Dua’s Cochlear Implant surgery and make a lasting difference in her life.
