600 million people in the world have a hearing impairment. 2/3 of them are living in developing countries. Access to a hearing aid, batteries and therapy is unaffordable and/or inaccessible in countries such as DR Congo.
Our project with a team of professional volunteers will help on a direct basis 118 children, doctors, nurses and therapists & indirectly parents, teachers and secondary health care workers. We will leave a sustainable hearing health program in place.
Through education & health one can break the cycle of poverty. A hearing aid gives the opportunity to an education which builds self confidence & gives the child a reason to stay healthy.The impact will have a domino effect on the community & state.
