Masroor Alam's Story
Masroor Alam, aged 2.7 years, was born with congenital deafness. His condition was discovered at the age of 1.5 years, when his parents consulted doctors due to his unresponsiveness to sounds. At first, his ENT specialist recommended a hearing aid, which Masroor used for one month. However, his responses did not improve. Now, his doctor has decided that the best course of action is a cochlear implant.
Masroor’s father is a carpenter who earns 15,000 PKR/month. Along with his own family of three, he also has to support his extended family with another 10 members. With no valuable assets or any other resources for his son’s implant surgery, he has no choice but to postpone it. But each day that goes by without it, Masroor’s childhood development is compromised.
“I cannot reconcile with the fact that there are options for my little boy out there but they are beyond my reach. What sort of a system turns such basic facilities into privileges? Masroor deserves the same help as someone with more means and I hope he gets it soon.” – Masroor Alam’s father
We believe that if a small child has a chance to hear again, financial circumstances shouldn’t hold him back.

Masroor Alam's Story
Masroor Alam, 2.7 years old boy, 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 done by Dr. Naveed Aslam on 11-11-2020 in National Hospital & Medical Centre, Lahore. The internal component of this implant was fixed in this surgery behind his ear. Masroor recovered well after 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.
