Both the children have been provided with financial assistance of Rs. 4.98 lakhs each for undergoing Cochlear Implant. Baby Zakiya (Two and a half years old) and Master Lalit (Four years old) can’t hear since birth and will be able to hear after the implant.

The Delhi government provided financial assistance to two kids through Delhi Arogya Kosh. The Governing Body of Delhi Arogya Kosh, a society under GNCTD, decided to sanction/release the financial assistance for the treatment of the patients.

Both the patients would undergo the implant within a week at the Lok Nayak Hospital, New Delhi.
