People who can't hear are cut off from their family, friends, and community. They often suffer from discrimination, stigmatization, and inferior educational and social services. In some countries, they are a source of shame and hidden away from view. As a result, they are more at risk of developing mental health problems like depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. UMR organized fundraising campaign in the US. The project had zero overhead expenses and all the money donated was fully allocated

Hearing is a critical aspect of communication. It's crucial to developing meaningful relationships and fully enjoying life, whether participating in a conversation between friends or the sounds of nature.


The project targeted refugees and poor children in Kenya in random camps in Wijar County who have no access to basic health benefits .

Long-Term Impact

Refugees with hearing problem face major challenges to connect to those around them and participate in community life, gain a quality education, and have access to the job market. The project intends to improve the lives of refugees with hearing impairment on three levels by giving them an equal chance to learn, work, connect with their surroundings and improve their social interactions.
