Konain’s Cochlear Implant Surgery
Konain Zahra's Story
Before you proceed on to read the painful details of Konain Zahra, know that your donations can open a whole new world to this innocent soul. Your donations, no matter how little, will have a huge impact on her life. Therefore we would request you to please donate for Konain’s Cochlear implant Surgery.
Five years old Konain Zahra, a resident of Rawalpindi, is not able to live her childhood to the fullest. Konain suffers from Congenital Sensorineural Hearing Loss. When she turned a year old, her parents noticed that she was not responding or reacting to sounds. They took her to a nearby hospital, where after going through multiple hearing tests and evaluation, the ENT specialist asked them to get her a Hearing device but they couldn’t afford that. Over time, her hearing sensitivity could not develop. Upon further consultation, the doctor now advised them to get Konain a Cochlear Implant. This Cochlear implant will help her recognize the hearing sensations and that will stimulate or activate the inner ear nerves.
Konain’s Father works as a laborer, and merely earns PKR. 25000 a month. Being the only breadwinner in the family and a family of eight people to raise in this mere amount is already very difficult for him. The cost of this surgery is hefty and it is beyond his affordability. He has no financial support from any friends or relatives. Konain’s father shared his distress with Transparent Hands in the following manner:
“ I want to raise my daughter like a princess. But it is absolutely heartbreaking for me to see my daughter missing out on her childhood because of this hearing disability and the lack of my financial means. Transparent Hands has given me and my wife hope.”
Luckily for Konain, she is now registered with Transparent Hands, we are determined to help her and bring the sense of sound in her life. But, this will not be possible without your generous contribution. We urge you to please donate as much as you can for Konain’s Cochlear Implant Surgery.
