Muhammad Umer 's Story
Umer’s life may be completely altered by the cochlear implant surgery. He won’t be able to study or speak without the surgery since he won’t be able to hear his surroundings. His family has been devastated by his silence. He awaits cochlear implant surgery; therefore, we urge you to donate and support Umer’s cochlear implant surgery to give him the opportunity to function well in life.
Five-year-old Umer, a resident of Nowshera, has congenital sensorineural hearing loss. When he was a year old and not reacting to their voices, his parents realized that something was wrong. His parents brought him to a local hospital, where he underwent testing. He was diagnosed with sensorineural deafness after consultation. He was advised by the doctor to have cochlear implant surgery. A cochlear implant stimulates the cochlear nerve electrically in order to restore hearing.
He lives with his parents and two siblings. His father is jobless and dependent on the financial support provided by relatives. He does not wish to leave Umer trapped in a silent world. His father expressed distress in the following words:
“I believe that with some effort, I will be able to gather sufficient funds for my child’s cochlear implant surgery, and my child will have the chance to gain a lot of important opportunities in life. Your donation today will help my child receive the necessary medical treatment and thrive in the future.”
Someone informed his parents about Transparent Hands and the causes we support, and they contacted us for a financial gift. Now, all that is required of you is a small donation to support Umer’s cochlear implant surgery and allow him to live his life to the fullest.

If a patient requires urgent surgery and his/her condition is serious, Transparent Hands conducts the surgery immediately. In the meantime, his/her campaign stays active on the website until we raise the complete funding.

Muhammad Umer 's Story
Five-year-old Umer, a resident of Nowshera, had congenital sensorineural hearing loss since birth. When he was a year old and not reacting to their voices, his parents realized that something was wrong. His parents brought him to a local hospital, where he underwent testing. He was diagnosed with sensorineural deafness after consultation. He was advised by the doctor to have cochlear implant surgery.
Unfortunately, his family was not in a stable financial situation to pay for the surgery. They contacted Transparent Hands for financial assistance.
He was admitted to Ali Medical Centre, Islamabad where Dr. Jawwad performed his operation on 7-07-2023. The doctor fixed the internal component of the cochlear implant, and the operation was successful. He was discharged after one day in the hospital. However, he had a long way to go before his hearing was fully restored. After a few weeks, he returned to the hospital, where the external component of his cochlear implant was fixed, allowing him to enter a world of sound.
Umer's doctor strongly advised him to undergo speech therapy sessions with a qualified professional to enhance his language and communication abilities. With a visit to a skilled speech therapist, he acquired the skills to comprehend and use speech more effectively. The presence of his cochlear implant has granted him the privilege of experiencing the richness of sound, unlocking opportunities for learning, connecting with others, and embracing life's joys.
Equipped with the cochlear implant, Umer actively engages in conversations, fostering a sense of involvement and belonging in social gatherings. This newfound ability empowers him to forge meaningful relationships and create cherished memories with his family, friends, and peers.
Umer and his family were fortunate enough to afford the life-changing surgery, thanks to the unwavering support of generous donors and Transparent Hands. Your invaluable assistance has bestowed upon him the extraordinary gift of hearing, which will forever positively shape his life.
