Musfira Bibi's Story
Musfira has been unable to hear properly for the last five years. She suffers from severe right ear pain and irregular discharge, which causes her a lot of discomfort. She awaits tympanoplasty, so donate as much as you can to ease her pain.
Musfira, a 13-year-old resident of Karachi, has been suffering from ear discharge and decreased hearing ability for the last five years. She went to some local doctors, and they gave her painkillers, but this treatment did not cure her disease. She went to an ENT specialist for consultation and underwent some diagnostic tests. After the evaluation, she was diagnosed with Bilateral Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM). Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM) is caused by perforation of the eardrum with persistent drainage from the middle ear. To treat this condition, the doctor advised her to undergo tympanoplasty. Tympanoplasty is a surgery to repair the eardrum. The eardrum is a thin layer of tissue that vibrates in response to sound. This procedure is crucial for Musfira, as her hearing ability is deteriorating drastically. Unfortunately, they are unable to afford this operation.
Her father is a labourer and earns just PKR 26,000 monthly, which is hardly enough to meet the basic needs of the family. With a family of seven members to support, it is impossible for him to bear the expense of this procedure. Musfira shared with us:
“I have been suffering from this pain for the last five years. Whenever I go to any gathering, I am embarrassed due to this ear discharge. It is causing me not only pain but also depression. Please help me through this dark period of my life.”
Now that her case has been registered with Transparent Hands, we have promised to help her get cured. This will only be possible with your assistance. Hence, we urge you to donate generously as Musfira awaits tympanoplasty.

Musfira Bibi's Story
Musfira, a 13-year-old girl from Karachi, had been enduring the distressing symptoms of ear discharge and decreased hearing ability for the past five years. Despite seeking help from local doctors who provided temporary relief through painkillers, her condition remained unresolved. Determined to find a solution, Musfira consulted an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialist who conducted a thorough examination and performed diagnostic tests.
The results revealed that Musfira was suffering from Bilateral Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM). This condition occurs when there is persistent drainage from the middle ear due to a perforation of the eardrum. Understanding the severity of Musfira's condition, the ENT specialist recommended tympanoplasty, a surgical procedure to repair the perforated eardrums and treat CSOM.
However, Musfira's family faced financial constraints, with her father struggling to support a family of seven members. In a ray of hope, Musfira's case was registered with Transparent Hands, and we promised to support Musfira in her journey towards recovery.
With the aid of compassionate donors, Musfira's dream of receiving the necessary treatment became a reality. She was admitted to Murshid Hospital, Karachi, where Dr. Paras, a skilled surgeon, performed the tympanoplasty on 22-09-2023.
The surgery was a success, and Musfira's condition improved significantly. After one day of post-operative care, she was discharged from the hospital in a stable condition.
Musfira's heart is filled with gratitude towards the generous donors who played a pivotal role in her healing journey. As Musfira continues her recovery, she cherishes the gift of restored hearing and a life free from the burden of chronic ear discharge. She plans to make the most of this newfound health by focusing on her studies, pursuing her dreams, and enjoying the simple joys of life.
