Muhammad Kashaan's Story
Muhammad Kashaan, 5 years old, has suffered from sensorineural hearing loss since birth but was diagnosed at the age of 1 year. His parents noticed his unresponsiveness to the loudest of sounds and took him for a check-up. They found out that he does not have the ability to hear and because of that, he will also not be able to speak.
Kashaan was fitted with a hearing aid for a few months but his responses did not improve. His parents visited another hospital to make sure that the device was working but upon re-examination, they were informed that Kashaan’s problem cannot be resolved with an aid. He requires a cochlear implant to be able to hear.
Kashaan is fourth in a line of five siblings. He lives with his family in a modest dwelling in KPK. His father, a salesman by profession, earns close to 14,000 PKR/month. He can hardly manage to support his family of 6 with this amount, much less afford an expensive implant surgery.
“To all my kind brothers and sisters out there: please help my son. His entire future could be reinvented with this surgery so I earnestly request your assistance with it.”- Kashaan’s father, Abdul Rasheed
