Akasha Akbar 's Story

“We first saw the worrisome signs when Akasha wouldn’t even flinch at the loud banging of construction workers outside. We would keep calling his name and he wouldn’t turn his head towards us. I knew then that my child was going deaf.” – Akasha’s mother

6-year-old Akasha Akbar started undergoing hearing loss at the age of 1. Before this, he was a responsive baby but gradually, his parents noticed that he wouldn’t react to sounds. When they took him for a check-up, the doctor informed them that Akasha would lose his hearing ability unless a cochlear implant is surgically placed.

A cochlear implant is an expensive procedure that Akasha’s father cannot afford. With only a monthly wage of 10,000 PKR, it is impossible for him to even manage the day-to-day expenses of his wife and 6 children. Opting for this surgery privately was not an option so he put his son on the waitlist for a free procedure at a local hospital. It has been almost 3.5 years, however, and Akasha’s turn still hasn’t come up. Recently, his father came to know of Transparent Hands and registered his case here.

Your donations can help a 6-year-old get his hearing ability back. This is a chance Akasha deserves.

Akasha Akbar 's Story

Akasha Akbar, 5.9 years old, had sensorineural hearing loss since birth. In order to develop his sense of hearing, he was advised to have a cochlear implant surgery. His operation was performed by Dr. Naveed Aslam on 14-11-2020 in National Hospital & Medical Center, Lahore. The internal component of the implant was fixed in this surgery behind Akasha’s ear. He recovered well from the procedure and was discharged after one day of hospital stay. He was given follow up advice to come back after 6 weeks for fixation of the external component of this device. The external component has also been installed now by Dr. Atif Ikram on 04-01-2021. Akasha has started hearing and responding to sounds. He is on regular follow ups by the audiologist.
