Shayan Fawad Ahmad's Story
Shayan is a sweet child whose life will be changed by cochlear implant surgery. Without the procedure, he would be unable to learn and communicate well, and he would be robbed of all the benefits of hearing the world around him. Your generous donations can help him hear the world and experience the joy of learning and connecting with others. His loved ones have been saddened by his silence. We request that you come forward to donate and help Shayan hear the world.
Three-year-old Shayan, a resident of Lahore, has congenital sensorineural hearing loss. When he was one year old, his parents recognized something was wrong since he wasn’t reacting to their voices. His parents drove him to the nearest hospital, where he underwent testing. He was diagnosed with sensorineural deafness after a consultation. He was advised by the doctor to have cochlear implant surgery. A cochlear implant is a tiny electronic device that stimulates the cochlear nerve (the nerve that allows you to hear). The implant contains both exterior and internal components. The exterior portion is attached behind the ear. It processes the sounds using a microphone before sending them to the implant in the ear.
He lives in a rented house with five family members. His family income is around PKR 40,000 per month, which is not enough to cover the expenses of costly surgery. His father said in a depressed tone:
“My biggest worry for my beloved child is that I couldn’t gather enough money for his cochlear implant operation. Your donation right now could change his life forever. Please, consider making a difference and giving him the gift of hearing. Your kindness can light up his world with the sounds he’s been longing to hear.”
Someone told his parents about Transparent Hands and the causes we champion, and they reached out to us for help. Now, all that is required of you is a small donation so that we can provide him with a cochlear implant. We request that you donate to his surgery and allow him to live his life to the fullest.
