Abdul Wahab's Story

Before you go on to read the painful details of Abdul Wahab’s story, please know that your small contribution made to Wahab’s surgery will open up a whole new world of sounds for him. Therefore, we would urge you to kindly donate as much as you can and fund Wahab’s Cochlear Implant Surgery. Every single penny donated will be much appreciated.
Abdul Wahab, a young child aged four years is residing in Rawalpindi. His parents realized that he was deafeningly ignoring any sounds and would not react to even loud noises. He didn’t respond to calls from his siblings or listen when his name was called. When he was around 13 months old, his parents became concerned and took him to the doctor. The ENT specialist ran a series of tests and found that he had bilateral significant sensorineural hearing loss. Abdul ‘s doctor also recommended that he have a cochlear implant.
A cochlear Implant is a sound-perception neuroprosthetic device that is surgically implanted behind the patient’s ear. It receives sound from the outside environment, processes it, and sends small electric currents near the auditory nerve. The brain learns to recognise these signals, and the person experiences this as “hearing”.
Wahab’s father is currently unemployed and his family relies on the financial assistance from the relatives. They are a family of four. It is hardly possible for them to manage basic expenses depending on the financial support.
“Wahab has the most beautiful eyes I’ve ever seen. He is an exceptionally bright young man. I wish he could hear and respond to what we’re saying.”
– Wahab’s mother’s words.
A member of the hospital’s administrative staff told them about Transparent Hands after learning about their challenging condition. His father approached our main office personnel and requested that his son be registered.
Wahab has his entire life before him. Your financial assistance will be greatly appreciated by his family, since the procedure will provide him with the gift of hearing. As Wahab awaits Cochlear Implant Surgery, we would request you to please donate and aid Wahab’s Cochlear Implant.
