Hoorain Fatima's Story
Five-year-old Hoorain, a resident of Dera Ismail Khan, has been suffering from congenital sensorineural hearing loss since birth. After several tests, Hoorain was diagnosed with sensorineural deafness. But there is still hope for Hoorain. The doctor advised her to undergo cochlear implant surgery, a ground-breaking procedure that has the potential to completely transform her life. Hoorain can receive the priceless gift of sound through cochlear implant surgery. Faced with the burden of a costly surgery, her family found themselves in a dire situation. Desperately seeking assistance, they placed their hopes in Transparent Hands, a lifeline fueled by the remarkable strength of collective compassion.
Hoorain was admitted to Ali Medical Complex in Islamabad, where Dr. Jawad skillfully performed the cochlear implant surgery on 15-06-2023. With precision and expertise, the doctor successfully implanted the internal component, marking a significant milestone in her life toward hearing restoration. After just one day in the hospital, she was discharged, and then after a few weeks, the external component of the cochlear implant was also fixed.

With their unwavering guidance, she discovered a newfound power to respond to her parents’ voices, illuminating a path for her to express love and forge deeper connections with her cherished ones.
