Talha Khan 's Story
Talha was born with a heart problem that is causing him a lot of difficulties. His parents are really worried and scared because he has trouble breathing and is not gaining weight like other children. But Talha is a brave little fighter, and he fights for his life every single day. He can overcome this challenge and have a happy life full of laughter and endless possibilities. He just needs one more chance, and that chance is a critical surgery called a senning operation. This surgery will help his heart work better and give him the opportunity to grow, play, and live without being afraid. We ask you to please help save Talha’s little heart so he can have a healthy and happy life.
One-year-old Talha, a resident of Bhakkar, has been suffering from dyspnea, cyanosis, and episodes of fever and chest pain. He is unable to gain weight. His parents noticed these symptoms when he was just a month old. They took him to the local hospital. After running some diagnostic tests, the cardiologist diagnosed him with transposition of the great arteries (TGA), and ventricular septal defect (VSD). The cardiologist advised him to undergo a Senning operation to treat the transposition of the great arteries, which involves redirecting blood flow to the lungs for oxygenation.
He is living with his parents and three siblings. His father is the family’s sole breadwinner and earns PKR 20,000 monthly as a daily wager. He is financially unable to manage the surgical expenses, and time is running out. He said in a depressed tone:
“Please help save my child’s life with a donation towards the necessary cardiac surgery, granting them a chance at a healthy future.”
Talha’s parents reached out to Transparent Hands, and we registered his case. Join us in our mission to give him a future filled with hope and happiness. Together, we can make a difference in this precious child’s life and give him the gift of a healthy heart. Please donate and save Talha’s little heart. Every donation, no matter how small, will bring us one step closer to saving his heart.

Talha Khan 's Story
One-year-old Talha, a resident of Bhakkar, had been suffering from dyspnea, cyanosis, and episodes of fever and chest pain. He was unable to gain weight. His parents noticed these symptoms when he was just a month old. They took him to the local hospital. After running some diagnostic tests, the cardiologist diagnosed him with transposition of the great arteries (TGA), ventricular septal defect (VSD), atrial septal defect (ASD), and intact ventricular septum (IVS). The cardiologist advised him to undergo a median sternotomy and atrial switch-sending operation. Unfortunately, his father could not afford the cost of the surgery. He contacted Transparent Hands for financial help.
He was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore, where his operation was successfully performed by Dr. Asim on 23-06-2023. After a stay of five days in the hospital, he was finally allowed to go home. With the help of the Pakistan Children's Heart Foundation and other kind donors, this surgery was made possible. The moment his parents witnessed their beloved son's remarkable recovery, their hearts were filled with gratitude.
After the surgery, not only was his life saved, but a whole new world of possibilities opened up before him. With his health restored, he can now enjoy a carefree childhood, free from the limitations he once faced. A bright future awaits, filled with countless opportunities to explore, learn, and follow his dreams.
None of this would have been possible without the kindness and generosity of donors like you. Your contributions have had a profound impact, not just on Talha but on his entire family. The weight lifted off his parents' shoulders, knowing their son now has a chance at a healthy and prosperous future, is beyond measure. We are incredibly grateful to each and every donor who made this life-saving surgery a reality. Donate online to help deserving children like Talha.
