Hayam Querishi 's Story
Hayam awaits Cochlear Implant Surgery. Before you read the heartbreaking facts of Hayam’s story, keep in mind that your donations can help her discover a whole new world. Your contributions, no matter how small, will make a significant difference in her life. So, we urge that you please donate for Hayam’s Cochlear Implant.
Hayam’s Qureshi, aged four, living in Abbottabad, is not living her childhood to the fullest. Hayam suffers from a Congenital Sensorineural Hearing Loss. Her parents observed that she was not responding or reacting to sounds when she was only a year old. They took her to a local hospital. An ENT specialist suggested some tests to evaluate the cause. After the test reports came, the doctor recommended that they get her a hearing aid, which they couldn’t afford. Her hearing sensitivity could not develop. Following a second consultation, the doctor recommended that they get Hayam a Cochlear Implant. A Cochlear Implant receives sound from the outside environment, processes it, and sends small electric currents near the auditory nerve. These electric currents activate the nerve, which then sends a signal to the brain. The brain learns to recognize this signal and the person experiences this as “hearing”.
Hayam’s father is a daily wager and barely makes enough money to support his family. Being the sole earner in the family and raising a family of six on this meagre income is difficult enough for him. The expense of this procedure is out of his reach. He has no friends or family who can help him financially. Hayam’s father expressed his grievances to Transparent Hands in the following manner:
“It brings tears to my eyes to see my daughter miss out on her childhood due to her hearing impairment. Transparent Hands brought my wife and myself hope.”
Fortunately for Hayam, she has now been connected with Transparent Hands, and we are committed to assisting her and restoring her sense of hearing. That being said, without your generous support, this will not be possible. As Hayam awaits Cochlear Implant Surgery, we strongly urge you to contribute as much as possible and donate for Hayam’s case.

Hayam Querishi 's Story
Four-year-old Hayam Qureshi, a resident of Abbottabad, was suffering from sensorineural hearing loss since birth. In order to develop her sense of hearing, she was advised of cochlear implant surgery. Her operation was performed by Dr. Jawad Ahmad on 31-12-2021 at Ali Medical Complex. The internal component of the implant was fixed behind Hayam Qureshi’s ear in this surgery. She recovered well from the procedure and was discharged after one day of hospital stay. The external component of her cochlear implant was installed after six weeks. She can hear the beautiful sounds of the world now.
