Muhammad Rahim's Story
Muhammad Rahim is unable to hear the beautiful sounds of the world. This little boy has not even heard the voice of his parents. Muhammad Rahim needs a cochlear implant to gain his sense of hearing. Please donate for Muhammad Rahim’s cochlear implant surgery as much as you can.
Muhammad Rahim, a three-years-old resident of Lahore, has not been able to live his early childhood to the fullest like all the other children. He suffers from Congenital Sensorineural Hearing Loss. His parents noticed that he was not responding to sounds and they took him to a nearby hospital. Muhammad Rahim underwent a number of hearing tests and after the doctor evaluated the reports, he was diagnosed with Sensorineural Hearing Loss. After the diagnosis, Muhammad Rahim’s parents were advised to get him 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 understand this signal and the person experiences this as “hearing”.
Muhammad Rahim’s father is the sole earner in the family and supports a family of six. They depend on him for their basic needs. With a meager income of PKR 30,000, he hardly makes ends meet. It is next to impossible for him to pay for his son’s cochlear implant surgery.
Muhammad Rahim’s mother shared her distress with Transparent Hands in the following manner:
“The treatment our son needs to gain his sense of hearing is very expensive. We want our son to listen to our voices and play like all the other kids his age. However, this hearing defect is causing him a lot of stress. Please help us.”
After a lot of distress, Muhammad Rahim’s case has been registered with Transparent Hands and we are ready to help him and bring a whole new sense of sounds into his life. But, this can only be possible without your support. Please donate for Muhammad Rahim’s Cochlear Implant Surgery as soon as possible.
