Wafa Abbas's Story
Wafa is a sweet little kid who was born without the ability to hear. His parents are worried, but they are also hopeful because they know that he will be able to hear with a cochlear implant. However, it’s a very expensive device and they won’t be able to obtain it for their son without your assistance. This device can change Wafa’s life and future. Please donate for Wafa’s cochlear implant surgery as much as you can.
Six-year-old Wafa Abbas, a resident of Sargodha, has been suffering from hearing loss since he was born. Until his first birthday, his parents were completely unaware of this. His parents took him to the nearest hospital when they discovered he wasn’t responding to his name and other sounds. The doctors diagnosed him with sensorineural hearing loss. The doctor recommended that he should get a cochlear implant. An electronic device is surgically installed during cochlear implant surgery. It helps the patient with developing a sense of hearing.
Wafa Abbas’s parents have some hope now because they know a cochlear implant surgery can help their son. However, they can’t pay for it due to financial constraints. They live in a small house and his father supports a family of eight members with a meager income. He earns just PKR 40,000 per month. There is no way for Wafa’s father to pay for the cochlear implant surgery.
Someone told them about Transparent Hands and they reached out to us. We are determined to help this little boy and his family. But we need your support to improve this innocent boy’s future.
“When the doctor informed us that our son has hearing loss, we couldn’t believe our ears. He had never heard our voices. I’m hoping someone will be able to assist us.” – Wafa’s father

Wafa Abbas's Story
Six-year-old Wafa, a resident of Sargodha, has lived a life shrouded in silence due to sensorineural hearing loss since birth. Concerned for their beloved child, Wafa's parents sought medical intervention, leading them to a pivotal moment in their journey. The doctor's diagnosis was clear: Wafa required cochlear implant surgery to restore his hearing. However, this life-changing procedure comes at a hefty cost, making it nearly impossible for Wafa's family to afford.
Faced with this daunting reality, they turned to Transparent Hands, where the power of collective compassion became a lifeline. He was admitted to the National Hospital, Lahore, where Dr. Naveed Aslam performed his operation on 1-04-2023. The doctor fixed the internal component of the cochlear implant, and the operation was successful. He was discharged after one day in the hospital. However, the journey to full restoration of his hearing was not yet complete. After a few weeks, the external component of the cochlear implant was fixed, paving the way for a world of sound for him.
Your contributions not only gave him the ability to recognize different sounds but also gave him the opportunity to experience the beauty and complexities of speech. The road to his future is now paved with endless possibilities. With the cochlear implant serving as a bridge to the world of sound, his journey will continue with the guidance of dedicated speech therapists who will help him develop language and communication skills.
Wafa's newfound ability to hear will open doors to education, social interaction, and a fulfilling life. The cost of this life-changing surgery was beyond the means of Wafa's family, and it is through the unwavering support of Transparent Hands and the generosity of donors like you that his surgery was made possible. Your contributions have brought the gift of hearing into his life, creating a ripple effect that will resonate throughout his future.
