Muhammad Marwan Marwan's Story
Three-year-old Muhammad Marwan, hailing from Malakand, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, has been immersed in silence since birth due to congenital hearing loss. His inability to respond to sounds prompted medical tests, confirming this lifelong challenge. For Muhammad Marwan, the prospect of hearing lay within cochlear implant surgery. However, financial constraints stood as an insurmountable hurdle, preventing his family from accessing this crucial treatment.
Amidst this struggle, Muhammad Marwan’s case reached Transparent Hands. Through the remarkable kindness of donors, a glimmer of hope emerged for him. This support paved the way for Muhammad Marwan to undergo life-altering cochlear implant surgery at Ali Medical Complex, Islamabad, on 12 October 2023. Dr. Jawwad Ahmed skillfully performed the surgery, installing the internal implant. His discharge the following day marked the commencement of his journey towards hearing restoration.
Muhammad Marwan embarked on a transformative journey towards sound. The upcoming installation of the external implant in six weeks, coupled with scheduled speech therapy sessions, aimed to gradually reintroduce him to the world of sound and language.
Guided by Dr. Jawwad Ahmed’s expertise and the promise of an external implant along with subsequent speech therapy, Muhammad Marwan stands on the brink of rediscovering the joy of sound. The financial accessibility of this life-altering surgery, made possible by the generosity of donors, signifies a pivotal moment in Muhammad Marwan’s life—a step towards embracing a world filled with the richness of sound, fostering newfound avenues for connection, communication, and learning.
