From Silence to Sound: A story of resilience

Mohammad, all of 1 year and 11 months, was born after 10 years of marriage. Right from an early age, he was hospitalized on multiple occasions for Distal Renal Tubular Acidosis. This has had a major impact on the families financial condition and the family has no more funds to be able to support further medical expenses towards his condition.

Mohammad’s hearing loss was diagnosed early on at the Wadia Hospital in Mumbai,who in turn referred him to Dhvani. The family visited Dhvani in August 2019 and enrolled him in the early intervention program, where his audiological testing was conducted and he was equipped with a good quality digital hearing aid. Simultaneously, he was also evaluated by a qualified Auditory Verbal therapist and was started on language therapy sessions.
 
At Dhvani, we ensure constant testing and screening of our patients. As per his latest audiogram, Mohammad has been diagnosed with bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss, as a result of which he is hard of hearing in both ears. Additionally, he has also 
undergone radiological testing, MRI and HRCT. Based on the radiological and audiological findings, the ENT surgeon at Hinduja Hospital has recommended a Cochlear Implant surgery.

However, due to the sudden onset of the COVID pandemic, his parents have been struggling to raise the necessary funds for his treatment, as his father lost his job during the lockdown and is currently working as a part time taxi driver to sustain his family. His parents are keen on him undergoing the surgery, as that will enable him to develop speech and language skills and ultimately, will be able to integrate smoothly into mainstream society.

We urge you to donate now, so many more young, vulnerable children can receive access to the right treatment, and suitable alignment into formal education.
