Muhammad Musa's Story
Before you dwell on devouring the painful details of Muhammad Musa’s story, please know that your small contribution made to Musa’s cause will open up a whole new sense of sound for him. Therefore, we would request you to please donate as much as you can because Musa needs your donations for his treatment. Every single penny donated is much appreciated.
Muhammad Musa, aged five, a resident of Bhambir, KPK, is not living his early childhood to the fullest like many others. He suffers from Congenital Sensorineural Hearing Loss. When Musa was a year old, his parents noticed that he was not responding to sounds. He would not respond to his name or would look confused trying to understand what his mother is trying to say. He was taken to a nearby hospital. Musa underwent a number of hearing tests and after the doctor evaluated the reports he was diagnosed with Sensorineural Hearing Loss. After the diagnosis was done, Musa’s parents were told to get him a hearing aid device but they could not afford to get it. Over time, his hearing ability could not develop . Upon further consultation, Abbas’s parents were advised to get him a Cochlear Implant.
A cochlear implant receives sound from the outside environment, processes it, and sends small electric currents near the auditory nerve. These electric currents activate the nerve, which then sends a signal to the brain. The brain learns to recognize this signal and the person experiences this as “hearing”.
Musa’s father works as a salesman in a private company and earns a total of PKR. 17,000 a month. That is the sole mean of his income and he is the sole earner of the family and has a family of four people to feed and raise. They rely on him for their basic needs. With minimal income, and no financial support , the hefty cost of this procedure is beyond their affordability.
Musa’s mother shared her ordeal with Transparent Hands in the following manner:
“My boy is such a sweet little kid and has the purest heart any child could have. It breaks my heart into trillions of pieces when my child looks at me with those blank looks trying to understand what I am saying. I look in his eyes and see the dearth and desire of wanting to be a part of this world, the world of sounds. Please help my son.”
Musa’s father found out about Transparent Hands through a friend. He contacted us. Transparent Hands verified and registered Musa’s case.
Now that Muhammad Musa has been registered with Transparent Hands, we are dedicated to help him and bring a whole new sense of sound in his life. But, this is not going to be possible without your donations. Musa needs your donations as soon as possible for him to learn fast and not miss out on his childhood. Therefore, please donate generously.
