Iman Fatima 's Story

Iman has been living in a world of silence since birth, and the pain of isolation caused by her hearing loss is something no child should ever have to endure. Although there is a surgical treatment available, her family’s financial constraints make it impossible for them to afford it. But there is hope, and it lies in your generosity. Imagine being able to hear the voices of loved ones, the sound of music, and the laughter of friends. With your help, Iman can finally experience these simple yet profound joys and break free from the silence that has held her back for so long. Your donation will not only bring joy to her life but also leave an everlasting impact on her family.  So, we urge you to donate for Iman’s cochlear implant surgery and make a difference in her life. Your donation can be the light that illuminates Iman’s world and gives her a chance to thrive.

One-and-a-half-year-old, resident of Nowshera, has been dealing with congenital sensorineural hearing loss, a condition that has left her in a world of silence since birth. When she was just one year old, her parents noticed that she wasn’t responding to their voices, and their worst fears were confirmed after medical tests and consultations with a doctor. She was diagnosed with sensorineural deafness. The doctor advised her to undergo cochlear implant surgery. However, the cost of this surgery is a barrier that Iman’s family cannot overcome due to their financial constraints. Without this treatment, Iman’s ability to communicate and learn will be severely impacted, and she will miss out on the simple joys that come with hearing the world around her.

She lives in a joint family of fifteen members. Her father earns just PKR 40,000 as a private school teacher, which is not enough to pay for this costly surgery. 

Her father said it in despair:

“Our hearts ache as we see our beloved Iman suffer in silence every day. We are pleading for your support to give her the chance to experience the beauty of sound and live a life full of joy.”

Iman’s parents have registered her case with Transparent Hands after going through a lot of distress. Now, they are looking for your help to give her the gift of hearing through the surgery. With your support, we can help Iman discover the beauty of sound and connect with the world in a new way. Please donate for Iman’s cochlear implant surgery and make a life-changing difference in her life.

Iman Fatima 's Story

Iman Fatima, a one-and-a-half-year-old resident of Nowshera, was born with congenital sensorineural hearing loss, leaving her in a silent world. Concerned about her lack of response to their voices, her parents sought medical advice and received a heartbreaking diagnosis: sensorineural deafness. The doctor recommended cochlear implant surgery as the best option for Iman's condition. However, the cost of the procedure was a significant obstacle for her family, who faced financial constraints.

Iman's family persevered and registered her case with Transparent Hands. With their support, she was admitted to the National Hospital, Lahore, where Dr. Naveed Aslam performed the cochlear implant surgery on 14-07-2023. The internal component of the implant was successfully fixed, and after a day of observation, Iman was discharged.

Although her journey to restored hearing was not yet complete, Iman remained determined. She returned to the hospital a few weeks later to have the external component of the cochlear implant attached. This marked a significant turning point in her life as she entered a world filled with sound.

Recognizing the importance of language and communication in her development, Iman's doctor recommended speech therapy sessions to help her grasp the intricacies of speech. Through these sessions, she gradually honed her language and communication skills, gaining a deeper understanding of spoken words.

Iman's newfound ability to hear became a gateway to education, social engagement, and a more fulfilling life. The cochlear implant acted as a conduit, allowing her to actively participate in conversations and feel embraced and connected during social occasions. With her restored hearing, she formed significant bonds, shared laughter, and created cherished memories with her family, friends, and peers.

This life-transforming surgery, made possible through the kindness of donors became a milestone in Iman's life. Their generosity granted her the precious gift of hearing, an impact that will shape her life forever.
