Sidra Bibi's Story
6-year-old Sidra Bibi did not respond to her mother’s voice as a baby. Her parents got worried regarding her lack of responsiveness and took her to a doctor when she was around 6 months old. The general physician referred her case to an ENT specialist. The ENT specialist, after complete check-up, diagnosed her with sensorineural hearing loss and recommended that she should get a cochlear implant. It is a surgically implanted neuroprosthetic device that helps in providing a modified sense of sound to a person with moderate to intense sensorineural hearing loss.
But, Sidra’s parents cannot afford this device. Her father is a daily wager and earns only PKR 20,000 per month. They are a family of 5, living in a 4 Marla house that belongs to their grandparents.
“Being a father, I want the best for my children. I feel a profound sense of guilt for not being able to pay for Sidra’s treatment.”- Sidra Bibi’s father
A colleague told him that if he got his daughter registered with Transparent Hands, we would arrange for her surgery to be conducted free of cost. He contacted us and we have reviewed and registered her case.
Sidra Bibi will be able to hear after this surgery. Make a generous donation and change her life forever.
