*Help Fathima get Cochlear Implant to help her hear *
We come with an urgent appeal for help for the medical treatment required by 1 year 5 months old Fathima who was surrendered for adoption and is being looked after at the Shishu Mandir Children’s Home, Bangalore, India. Fathima was born in May 2020 and has had such a difficult start in life. Her mother decided to surrender her for adoption, when she was about 2 months old and Fathima came to the Shishu Home on 7th July 2020. But a month later, her mother claimed the child back. However, in January this year, she returned baby Fathima, saying she was unable to manage her life with the baby.
A few months after Fathima was returned to Shishu Mandir, the staff there realized, Fathima was not responding to loud noises. She got consulted with Dr. Sampath Chandra Prasad Rao, founder of Bangalore Hearing & Implant Institute. Various tests proved that Fathima is completely deaf.
In order to restore some hearing capacity, she needs a cochlear implant. The cost of the implantation in both the ears is exorbitant and it brings the total cost of the procedure to Rs 38.4 lakh. This amount is prohibitive and we will not be able to raise it without your support.
The operation will change life for Fathima completely, allowing her the opportunity to be educated and make a life for herself. It will also improve her chances, to find an adoptive family.
Your help will transform the future of little Fathima.
Help Jeshwitha get Cochlear Implant to help her hear
This little girl Jeshwitha is suffering from Bilateral Hearing Impairment and needs a Cochlear Implant. The cost of the surgery and the entire procedure is quite high which is extremely expensive for her parents to arrange in a short period of time. It is crucial for Jeshwitha to get this treatment at the earliest however her parents are unable to arrange this expensive cost and need your help to get her this surgery done.
When Jeshwitha was only around 6 months old, they couldn’t help but notice that she wasn’t responding to loud noises in the vicinity. Her reaction to sounds wasn’t up to the mark for her age. Upon consultation with the doctors and conducting certain scans, they were informed that she has profound Bilateral hearing loss. In a nutshell, this meant that she didn’t have a major portion of her hearing ability and couldn’t hear even amplified speech or sounds.
Her parents were also informed that treatment was required for her. A Cochlear Implant is a procedure where a neuroprosthetic device is surgically implanted in an individual’s ear which helps in restoring hearing. Surgery is needed to implant the internal device which is connected to an external hearing aid. The cost of the entire procedure is about Rs 39.55 lakh - an exorbitant amount that is extremely expensive and difficult to arrange in such a short span of time.
As explained by the doctor, this procedure must be done as soon as possible because with age the neuroplasticity in an individual’s brain reduces. The earlier it is done, the better is the output with speech and hearing.
Jeshwitha is almost a year old and must take this surgery in the next two months. She is unable to even mumble a few words as she is unable to hear. With the required treatment, she will be having better hearing which will lead her to normal speech and language development.
We’d highly appreciate your help to get Jeshwitha this important surgery which will help her lead a fulfilling life. Please also share this story on social media as that would be an immense help.
Your help will transform the future of little Jeshwitha.
