Support Fatima’s Cochlear Implant Surgery
Fatima Idrees 's Story
Fatima is an innocent child who needs cochlear implant surgery to make a life-changing difference. Without the surgery, her ability to learn and communicate will be severely impacted, and she will miss out on all the joys that come with hearing the world around her. Her family is devastated at the thought of Fatima living in silence for the rest of her life. We urge you to support Fatima’s Cochlear Implant Surgery to give her an opportunity to function well in life.
Three-year-old Fatima, a resident of Bagh, has been suffering from congenital sensorineural hearing loss. Her parents first noticed something was wrong when she was one year old and wasn’t responding to their voices. Her parents took her to the local hospital, where her tests were done. Upon consultation, she was diagnosed with sensorineural deafness. The doctor advised her to undergo cochlear implant surgery. A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that electrically stimulates the cochlear nerve (the nerve for hearing). The implant has external and internal parts. The external part is fixed behind the ear. It uses a microphone to process the sounds and then sends them to the implant inside the body.
She lives with her parents and three siblings in a small house. Her father has a private job and earns PKR 32,000 per month. Unfortunately, he cannot afford the surgical expenses, and is in desperate need of help. Although his limited income cannot cover the cost of the procedure, he doesn’t want to leave Fatima trapped in a silent world. Her father said in distress:
“It breaks my heart as a father to see my daughter suffer in silence. Please donate to help her hear the world’s beautiful sounds.”
Her father contacted Transparent Hands to register his daughter’s case. We ask you support for Fatima’s Cochlear Implant surgery to help her discover the world of sounds.
