Sanam Zahra 's Story

Sanam has spent her entire life in a world devoid of sound. The burden of her hearing loss weighs heavily on her, causing her to endure immense social isolation. Her hearing defect could be restored with the help of surgery, but her family finds themselves grappling with financial constraints that prevent them from affording the treatment. Your financial gift holds the power to restore her hearing. Sanam awaits Cochlear Implant Surgery to bring joy to her life. 

Four-year-old Sanam, a resident of Islamabad, has been suffering from congenital sensorineural hearing loss. Her parents realized she was not responding to their voices when she was a year old, and they were concerned. Her parents took her to the local hospital, where her tests were done. Upon consultation, she was diagnosed with sensorineural hearing loss. The doctor advised her to undergo cochlear implant surgery. A cochlear implant is a small electronic device used to stimulate the cochlear nerve (hearing nerve) electrically. The surgery will bring the symphony of sound back to her life. 

Sanam lives in a rented house with her parents and three siblings. Her father is the only breadwinner in the family and earns PKR 28,000 per month. Her father’s financial position won’t allow him to pay for the surgical expenses. He said it in a despairing tone. 

“Our daughter’s ability to hear is hindered by a costly treatment that we cannot afford. Her hearing loss has become a source of great distress for her. We kindly ask for your assistance in making this treatment possible. Your support would mean the world to us and bring immeasurable happiness to her life”

Her father contacted Transparent Hands to register the case. Sanam awaits cochlear implant surgery to discover the world of sounds. We urge you to donate generously to her treatment to help her communicate with her loved ones.

Sanam Zahra 's Story

Four-year-old Sanam, a resident of Islamabad, had been suffering from congenital sensorineural hearing loss. Her parents realized she was not responding to their voices when she was a year old, and they were concerned. Her parents took her to the local hospital, where her tests were done. Upon consultation, she was diagnosed with sensorineural hearing loss. The doctor advised her to undergo cochlear implant surgery. 

Unfortunately, the life-changing cochlear implant surgery that holds the key to restoring her hearing remains an unattainable dream for her loving parents, burdened by financial constraints. They reached out to Transparent Hands for financial support and we promised her to collect the funds for the surgery. 

Sanam was admitted to Ali Medical Complex, Islamabad, where Dr. Jawad skillfully performed the cochlear implant surgery on 22-06-2023. With precision and expertise, the doctor successfully implanted the internal component. 

A significant milestone was achieved as her hearing ability was successfully restored, marking a pivotal moment. After just one day in the hospital, she was discharged, brimming with hope and anticipation to grasp new words that could express her emotions. Through the surgery, her world transformed from a silent world into a symphony of sounds.

Following a few weeks, the external component of the cochlear implant was also fixed. She also underwent a series of speech therapy sessions to develop her language and communication skills. With the diligent support of a speech therapist,  she found herself capable of responding to her parents' voices, discovering a fresh avenue to convey affection and establish personal connections.

The surgery's impact on her life was profound, unraveling a realm of opportunities previously unexplored. The generous contributions from donors paved the way for this transformational surgery. Their kindness gave her the priceless gift of hearing, setting off a chain of positivity that will shape her future in a beautiful way.
