Azhar Iqbal's Story
Azhar Iqbal, a 44-year-old resident of Lahore, has been grappling with progressive hearing loss for several years. The cumulative effect of repeated middle ear infections has left him with bilateral ruptured eardrums, severely impairing his ability to hear and comprehend speech. Desperate for a solution, Azhar sought medical advice, and his doctor recommended super-powered computerized hearing aids as a means to restore his hearing and speech perception.
With a modest monthly income of PKR 35,000, Azhar faced significant financial limitations in accessing the necessary surgical procedures and hearing aids. Faced with this predicament, he reached out to Transparent Hands, and we swiftly responded to Azhar’s plea, recognizing the importance of restoring his hearing and improving his quality of life.
Azhar, a devoted father of seven children, has experienced firsthand the impact of his hearing loss on his family life. In his own words, he describes the challenges he faces:
“Every day, I struggle to hear my children’s laughter and their innocent voices. It breaks my heart to see their disappointment when I don’t understand what they’re saying. I want to be an active participant in their lives, but my hearing loss has held me back.”
Azhar’s determination to overcome these obstacles is unwavering. He believes that regaining his hearing will not only benefit him but also empower him to provide better care and support for his children. With the support of generous donors, Azhar hopes to receive the necessary medical procedure. He dreams of a future where he can actively engage in conversations, enjoy the symphony of sounds around him, and fully embrace the joys of fatherhood. By supporting Azhar, we can help him bridge the gap between silence and sound, enabling him to create a brighter future for himself and his beloved children.
