UJUWALLA’S STORY

Ujuwalla was born without eyes and abandoned by her birth parents.

When she started attending a preschool for the blind, the teachers noticed that Ujuwalla was not responding to sounds. Ujuwalla, 1 and a half year old little girl was then labeled as a “deaf and blind” orphan.

SAHI saw the potential in the girl and gave her the gift of hearing by donating a cochlear implant. This gift will help her evolve from the world of silence. Now Ujuwalla is full of life and is accomplishing all her developmental milestones normally.

Now that she has bilateral cochlear implants, her world is completely different and musical. She hears voices, babbles and hopefully will develop speech in the near future.
