Muhammad Rehan's Story
Rehan has spent the first two years of his life in complete silence due to his hearing loss. He has never heard any of the sounds that we normally take for granted. This isn’t an inevitable outcome, though. A cochlear implant would restore his hearing, but unfortunately, his family cannot afford the cost of the surgery. You can make his surgery possible for as little as $10. Support Rehan’s cochlear implant surgery to fill his future with joy.
Two-and-a-half-year-old Rehan, a resident of Rawalpindi, has suffered from profound hearing loss since birth. His parents noticed this and took him to the hospital for a consultation when he was a year old. After a thorough evaluation and some diagnostic tests, the doctor diagnosed him with sensorineural hearing loss. To overcome this condition, they advised him to undergo cochlear implant surgery. With this device, he will be able to hear and discover sounds for the first time. There are two parts to the cochlear implant. One is implanted surgically in the ear, and the other is placed externally a few weeks later.
Rehan’s parents can’t afford the cochlear implant surgery, which is the only thing standing in the way of their son living a normal life. He lives in a small house with his parents and three siblings. His father runs a small milk shop and earns just PKR 50,000 per month. With this meager income, they hardly manage to pay the bills. His mother expressed her distress in the following words:
“My child is so innocent; he has no idea that he was born deaf. I’m concerned about his future. Please contribute to his surgery campaign with Transparent Hands, as we have no other option.”
His family heard of Transparent Hands and the causes we support through word of mouth and reached out to us for help. Now, with just a little help from you, we can get him a cochlear implant and restore his hearing. Support Rehan’s cochlear implant surgery and make it possible for him to live his life to the fullest.

Muhammad Rehan's Story
Two-and-a-half-year-old Rehan, a resident of Rawalpindi, had been suffering from profound hearing loss since birth. His parents noticed this and took him to the hospital for a consultation when he was a year old. After a thorough evaluation and some diagnostic tests, the doctor diagnosed him with sensorineural hearing loss. To overcome this condition, the doctor advised him to undergo cochlear implant surgery.
A cochlear implant would restore his hearing, but unfortunately, his family cannot afford the cost of the surgery. In their urgent need for assistance, they reached out to Transparent Hands. Through the amazing support of our kind donors, Rehan got an opportunity to regain his ability to hear.
He was admitted to National Hospital Lahore, where Dr. Asim skillfully performed the cochlear implant surgery on 12-06-2023. The doctor successfully implanted the internal component with accuracy and expertise, constituting an important step in his quest for hearing restoration. He was discharged after one day of stay in the hospital.
Rehan’s complete recovery of hearing was a gradual process. After a few weeks, the skilled doctor inserted the external component of the cochlear implant. He will be able to recognize and process sounds after going through several speech therapy sessions. This life-changing moment opened up a whole new world for him, filled with wonder and the complexities of language.
He received support from a skilled speech therapist who guided her through speech therapy sessions, helping him to develop language and communication skills. Thanks to the cochlear implant, he embraced a world of learning, friendship, and fulfillment.
With this implant, he can now actively participate in conversations and feel more comfortable in social gatherings. The kind donors' generous contributions and unwavering support made it possible for Rehan and his family to afford this life-changing surgery. He will carry their sincere gratitude in his heart, as this gift of hearing will greatly improve his life in the years ahead.
