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.
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.
