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.

Shayan Fawad Ahmad's Story
In the vibrant city of Lahore, a courageous young child named Shayan Fawad embarked on an extraordinary journey of triumph and resilience. At the tender age of 3, Shayan faced the challenge of sensorineural hearing loss, a condition that created barriers in his path to experiencing the world of sound. Determined to help him overcome this obstacle, Shayan's family sought the expert care of the National Hospital And Medical Centre in Lahore.
On the 27th of July 2023, Shayan was admitted to the hospital, marking the beginning of a life-altering chapter. Under the skilled hands of the esteemed surgeon, Dr. Asim Iqbal, Shayan underwent a groundbreaking right-sided cochlear implant surgery. The procedure utilized a cutting-edge cochlear implant from the renowned company Med-el, meticulously designed to restore hearing function in individuals with sensorineural hearing loss.
The surgery proved to be a resounding success, opening the doors to a world of auditory wonders for Shayan. With attentive care and a short period of recovery, Shayan's condition improved significantly. On the 27th of July 2023, filled with gratitude and joy, Shayan and his family celebrated his discharge from the hospital, embracing a future teeming with endless possibilities and newfound auditory delights.
While the surgery had granted Shayan the gift of hearing, his journey towards complete restoration was still in progress. After four weeks, an external component of the cochlear implant was installed, further enhancing Shayan's ability to perceive sound. To maximize the benefits of the implant and foster effective communication skills, Shayan embarked on a comprehensive speech therapy program. Guided by dedicated professionals, his speech therapy sessions were tailored to address his unique needs, unlocking his potential for effective communication.
The remarkable success of Shayan's journey would not have been possible without the unwavering support and boundless generosity of compassionate donors. Their selfless contributions, regardless of their size, played a vital role in ensuring that Shayan had access to the necessary medical treatments and interventions. Their kindness not only granted Shayan the gift of hearing but also filled his family's hearts with immeasurable gratitude.
