Help Meerab to unlock the World of Sounds
Meerab Fatima 's Story
Meerab was born deaf and has never been able to hear. The tragedy is that she cannot respond to her name or recognize her parents’ voices, despite her beautiful name. However, her parents are unable to pay for the cochlear implant surgery she needs to regain her hearing. We request that you donate for Meerab’s cochlear implant surgery and help us introduce her to the world of sounds. It is only possible with your financial gift.
Four-year-old Meerab Fatima, a resident of Multan, has been suffering from hearing impairment since birth. When she was a year old, her parents noticed that she did not respond to their voices. Her parents took her to the local hospital, where her tests were done. Upon consultation, she was diagnosed with sensorineural hearing loss. The doctor advised her to undergo cochlear implant surgery. A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that sends electrical signals to stimulate the cochlear nerve (nerve for hearing). The implant has internal and external components. The external part picks up sounds with a microphone. Then, it processes the sound and transmits it to the internal part of the implant.
She lives with her parents and three siblings. Her father has a private job and earns PKR 35,000 per month. He is struggling to make ends meet. It is not possible for him to pay for the surgery with his limited income. He said it in a depressed tone.
When the doctor told us that she has hearing loss, our entire world turned upside down. I’m concerned about what life will be like for my daughter without the surgery. Please help us and donate today.
A friend of her parents told them about Transparent Hands, and they registered the case with Transparent Hands. We want to help Meerab hear her parent’s voices soon. But, we need your kind contributions to make a family’s dream come true. We urge you to donate for Meerab’s cochlear implant surgery to improve the quality of her life
