Mashaal Khan's Story
Mashaal suffers from hearing loss and has spent the last two years of his life in a world of silence. He is a stranger to all the sounds we take for granted. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. He can gain the ability to hear with a cochlear implant, but his parents can’t afford to pay for it due to financial constraints. You can make his surgery possible with as little as $10. Support Mashaal’s cochlear implant surgery to fill his future with joy.
Two-year-old Mashaal, a resident of Mohmand, KPK, was born without the ability to hear. His parents noticed this and took him to the hospital for a consultation when he was a year old. After a thorough evaluation and running some diagnostic tests, the doctor diagnosed him with Sensorineural Hearing Loss. The doctor has advised him to undergo cochlear implant surgery, which will enable him to hear. With this device, he will be able to hear and discover sounds for the first time. The cochlear implant has two components. One is surgically implanted in the ear, and the external component is installed a few weeks after the surgery.
He lives in a rented house with his grandfather, parents, and three siblings. His father is a government employee and earns just PKR 50,000 per month. He has no other source of income. A cochlear implant is an expensive surgery. Due to financial constraints, he is unable to afford the surgical expenses. His father said in a depressed tone:
“It is very painful for me when my son cannot respond to my voice. It is depressing to see that he cannot express his joy, pain, and despair in words. Please help me bring my son to the world of sounds. “
