Muhammad Sahil's Story
A cochlear implant could completely transform Sahil’s life. He will not be able to hear the world, which will hinder his education and social development. His silence has shattered his family. He eagerly needs funds to afford the cochlear implant surgery; we urge you to donate and give him the opportunity to function well in life.
Two-year-old Muhammad Sahil, a resident of Nowshera, has been suffering from congenital sensorineural hearing loss. His parents first noticed something was wrong when he was one year old and wasn’t responding to their voices. They took him to the local hospital, where his tests were done. Upon consultation, he was diagnosed with sensorineural deafness. The doctor advised him to undergo cochlear implant surgery. To restore hearing, a cochlear implant uses electrical stimulation of the cochlear nerve. There are external and internal components to the implant. The external part is attached behind the ear. It processes the sounds with a microphone before sending them to the implant inside the ear.
Sahil lives with his parents in a small house. His father is the sole provider for the family and earns a monthly salary of PKR 40,000. Unfortunately, he cannot afford the surgery and is in dire need of financial assistance. His father expressed distress in the following words:
“We kindly appeal for your support in providing the necessary funds for our child’s cochlear implant surgery. Due to financial constraints, we are unable to afford the medical treatment that would enable our child to experience the joy of hearing. Your generous donation would not only help improve their quality of life but also grant them the opportunity to fully participate in the world around them.”
Someone informed Sahil’s parents about Transparent Hands and the causes we support, and they contacted us for financial assistance. Now, all that is required of you is a small donation that will allow him to continue his studies and explore the endless opportunities of life.
