Pakeeza Nadeem 's Story
Pakeeza was born without a sense of hearing. She has a beautiful name, but it is so unfortunate that she cannot hear her own name or respond to her parent’s voices. She can gain the ability to hear with cochlear implant surgery, but her parents cannot afford it due to financial constraints. We request you to donate for Pakeeza’s Cochlear Implant Surgery and help us introduce her to the world of sounds. It is only possible with your financial gift.
Three-year-old Pakeeza, a resident of Lahore, has been suffering from hearing impairment since birth. When she was a year old, her parents noticed that she did not respond to their voices. Her parents took her to the local hospital where her tests were done. Upon consultation, she was diagnosed with sensorineural hearing loss. The doctor advised her to undergo cochlear implant surgery. A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that sends electrical signals to stimulate the cochlear nerve (nerve for hearing). The implant has internal and external components. The external part picks up sounds with a microphone. Then, it processes the sound and transmits it to the internal part of the implant.
Pakeeza lives in a small house with her parents and three siblings. Her father is a shopkeeper and earns only PKR 30,000 per month. A cochlear implant is an expensive surgery. Due to financial constraints, her father cannot afford the surgical expenses. His father said in despair:
“It will be the happiest day of my life when my daughter responds to her name. Please help me to fulfill my wish by donating generously for her cochlear implant surgery.”
A friend of her parents told them about Transparent Hands and they registered Pakeeza’s case with Transparent Hands. We want her to hear her parent’s voices soon. But, we need your help to make a family’s dream come true. We urge you to donate for Pakeeza ’s cochlear implant surgery to improve the quality of her life.
