Ilham Bibi's Story

Ilham Bibi, a charming 4-year-old girl from Swat, is facing a life-altering challenge. Born with congenital sensorineural hearing loss, Ilham has been deprived of the ability to hear her surroundings, hindering her communication skills and impeding her learning capabilities. The silence that envelops her has shattered her family, who yearn to see her experience the joys of sound. Now, as Ilham anxiously awaits cochlear implant surgery, we appeal to your compassionate hearts to donate and grant her the opportunity to thrive in life.

Ilham’s parents first noticed her hearing difficulties when she was just one year old. Her unresponsiveness to their voices prompted them to seek medical help at the local hospital. After undergoing tests and consultations, Ilham was diagnosed with sensorineural deafness. The medical experts recommended cochlear implant surgery as the solution to restore her hearing. This remarkable procedure utilizes electrical stimulation of the cochlear nerve, which consists of both external and internal components. The external part, attached behind the ear, processes sounds picked up by a microphone and transmits them to the internal implant.

Donate For Cochlear Implant Surgeries

Living with her parents and two siblings, Ilham’s family relies solely on her father’s monthly salary of PKR 20,000. Unfortunately, the financial strain prevents them from affording the necessary surgery. Witnessing their daughter confined in a silent world fills them with deep concern. Ilham’s father expressed his distress, saying,

“I fear that my daughter may miss out on crucial opportunities in life due to our financial limitations. I humbly implore you to donate today, allowing Ilham to receive the life-changing cochlear implant surgery she deserves.”

In their search for assistance, Ilham’s parents were informed about Transparent Hands and the impactful causes it supports. With hope in their hearts, they reached out to us, seeking a financial gift. Now, we turn to you, urging you to make a small donation that will contribute to Ilham’s journey toward cochlear implant surgery. Your generosity will grant her the precious gift of hearing, allowing her to embrace a world filled with sound and endless possibilities. Together, let us rally behind Ilham Bibi and make a difference in her life.

Please Note: In certain situations, we proceed with the patient's surgery/medical procedure despite incomplete funding displayed on the website. Following the surgery/medical procedure, we persist in collecting funds and maintain the campaign on the website until funding is secured in full. Hospitals have granted us a grace period for bill payment.

Ilham Bibi's Story

Ilham Bibi, a delightful 4-year-old from Swat, faced a significant challenge early in her life. Born with congenital sensorineural hearing loss, Ilham was unable to hear the world around her, which significantly hindered her ability to communicate and learn.

Her parents first became aware of her hearing difficulties when she was just one year old, as she did not respond to their voices. Concerned, they took her to a local hospital for evaluation. After a series of tests and consultations, the diagnosis was clear: Ilham had sensorineural deafness. Medical experts recommended a cochlear implant surgery to potentially restore her hearing, but the high cost of the procedure put it out of reach due to the family's financial constraints.In their quest for help, Ilham’s parents learned about Transparent Hands. Filled with hope, they approached us, seeking financial assistance to afford the life-changing surgery for their daughter.

Thanks to generous donations, Ilham Bibi was admitted to Ali Medical Center in Islamabad, where on March 27, 2024, Dr. Jawad Ahmed, a skilled surgeon, performed the delicate surgery to install the internal component of her cochlear implant. Just a day later, Ilham left the hospital, her life filled with new hope.

Over the next six weeks, with ongoing support from Transparent Hands, the external part of the implant was fitted successfully. Alongside this significant progress, Ilham began attending scheduled speech therapy sessions, crucial for her reintegration into the world of sound.

Her life has been profoundly changed. Once enveloped in silence, Ilham now experiences the rich tapestry of sounds—from laughter and conversations to the subtle melodies of life. This story highlights the power of community support and the resilience of Ilham Bibi, who has courageously overcome her challenges to embrace a world full of sound. Ilham's newfound ability to hear has opened doors to deeper connections with her family and friends, allowing her to participate fully in conversations and activities that were once beyond her reach.
