Farhan Khalid's Story
A cochlear implant holds the incredible potential to change Farhan’s life, granting him the ability to perceive sound and empowering him to navigate the world with greater ease. The absence of this auditory sense poses significant challenges to his education and social growth, leaving his family devastated. As Farhan eagerly anticipates his cochlear implant surgery, we passionately implore you to contribute generously, providing him with the life-altering chance to thrive and excel in all aspects of his life. Your donation will make an immeasurable difference in his future.
Three-year-old Farhan Khalid, a resident of Buner, has been suffering from congenital sensorineural hearing loss. His parents first noticed something was wrong when he was one year old and wasn’t responding to their voices. They took him to the local hospital, where his tests were done. Upon consultation, he was diagnosed with sensorineural deafness. The doctor advised him to undergo cochlear implant surgery. To restore hearing, a cochlear implant uses electrical stimulation of the cochlear nerve. There are external and internal components to the implant. The external part is attached behind the ear. It processes the sounds with a microphone before sending them to the implant inside the ear.
Farhan resides with his parents and one sibling. His father, who is the sole breadwinner, earns a monthly salary of PKR 30,000. Regrettably, he lacks the financial means to afford the crucial cochlear implant surgery for his child. In his heartfelt plea, Farhan’s father voiced his deep concerns, stating,
“I fear that my child will be deprived of numerous extraordinary opportunities in life due to our inability to cover the costs of the surgery. Your generous donations possess the power to bring about life-altering changes in my child’s future. We sincerely appeal to you to contribute today and help us secure the necessary medical treatment for him.”
Farhan’s parents learned about Transparent Hands and the causes it supports, and they reached out to us for help. Now, we kindly ask for your support with a small donation. Your contribution will enable him to embrace life to the fullest.
