Hammad Shinwari 's Story
Four-year-old Hammad Shinwari a resident of Kyber was born with the inability to hear. His parents only noticed it when he turned a year old. He was taken to an ENT specialist where he was diagnosed with congenital Sensorineural Hearing Loss. Initially, Hammad was advised to get a hearing aid device, but his parents could not afford it. Over time, his hearing ability did not develop, and upon further consultation, he was advised to undergo Cochlear Implant surgery. They came to Transparent Hands to ask for help. We sent Hammad to Ali Medical Complex, Islamabad, to get his Cochlear Implant surgery done by Dr. Jawwad Ahmed on 06-01-2022. He was discharged the following day in a stable condition. Hammad Shinwari can hear the voices of his parents now. The external component will be fixed after six weeks.
