Shamshad Ali's Story
Before you dive into Shamshad Ali’s tale of woes, please know that you can help him. Your donation, however small it may be, will help Shamshad hear the sound of his kids again. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Shamshad’s cochlear implant as much as you can.
Shamshad Ali is fifty years of age. Ever since Shamshad Ali was a kid, he complained about an unusual fluid coming out of his ears. This affected his ability to hear as well. Upon consultation, the doctors prescribed him medicines to control the symptoms. The medicines worked for a while but unfortunately, his hearing ability kept declining. Now, Shamshad Ali is at a point of complete deafness. He cannot hear anything. Due to his hearing disability, he has lost his job as well. Shamshad suffers from post-lingual deafness. Post-lingual deafness is deafness that develops after the acquisition of speech and language. Therefore, he can speak fluently but he cannot hear any sound.
To treat this condition, the doctors advised him to undergo cochlear implant surgery. A Cochlear Implant is a surgically implanted neuroprosthetic device that will give Shamshad a modified sense of sound.
While a cochlear implant is the only solution that will help Shamshad regain his sense of sound, there is no denying that it is an incredibly expensive procedure. Due to his unemployment, he is unable to bear the expenses of his surgery. Shamshad’s wife told us:
“Even since my husband lost his sense of sound, it seems that he has escaped this world. He is unable to communicate and pay attention to his kids. Please help him.”
After years of distress, Shamshad Ali found his way to Transparent Hands. After due verification, we have registered his case with us. We hope to get him able and healthy as soon as possible. But, it won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Shamshad’s cochlear implant as much as you can.
