Meerab Fatima's Story

Meerab was born without the ability to hear. Her beautiful name is a bitter reminder of the tragedy that she cannot respond to it or recognize her parents’ voices. Sadly, her parents do not have the financial means to pay for the cochlear implant surgery that is necessary for her to regain her hearing. We request that you support Meerab’s cochlear implant surgery and help us introduce her to the world of sounds. It is only possible with your financial gift.

Two-year-old Meerab Fatima, a resident of Dera Ismail Khan, has been suffering from hearing impairment since birth. When she was a year old, her parents noticed that she did not respond to their voices. 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 that sends electrical signals to stimulate the cochlear nerve (the nerve for hearing). The implant has internal and external components. The external part picks up sounds with a microphone. Then, it processes the sound and transmits it to the internal part of the implant.

She lives with her parents and one sibling in a rented house. Her father works as a security guard for PKR 13,000 per month. He is struggling to make ends meet. It is not possible for him to pay for the surgery with his limited income. He said it in a depressed tone. 

“Everything turned upside down when the doctor told us she has hearing loss. My daughter’s future without surgery is a source of concern for me because I am not sure what her life will be like. Donate whatever you can afford to help us out today. “

Her parents registered the case with Transparent Hands after a relative’s recommendation. We want to help Meerab hear her parents’ voices soon. However, we need your help to make a family’s dream a reality. We urge you to support Meerab’s cochlear implant surgery to improve the quality of her life
