Minal Khan's Story
Minal has never been able to hear since she was born deaf. Despite her lovely name, it is unfortunate that she is unable to reply to her name or recognize her parents’ voices. Unfortunately, the cochlear implant surgery, she requires to restore her hearing is beyond the financial means of her parents. We ask that you help Minal to unlock the world of sounds. It is only possible with your financial gift.
Two-year-old Minal, a resident of Manshera, 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 inner part of the implant.
She lives with her parents and one sibling. Her father has a private job and earns PKR 15,000 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.
“Our lives were flipped upside down when the doctor informed us that she had hearing loss. Without the surgery, I’m worried about how my kid will live. Please support us by giving right now.
A friend of her parents told them about Transparent Hands, and they registered the case with Transparent Hands. We want to help Minal hear her parent’s voices soon. But, we need your kind contributions to make a family’s dream come true. We urge you help Minal to unlock the world of sounds and improve the quality of her life
