Summary

Sounds are the whole world, it's hard to imagine that it cannot beThere are about 400 000 people with hearing impairments of different degrees in Ukraine. About 85% of them are almost completely deprived of the opportunity to hear. One deaf child is born for 1,000 normal births. In order to give him opportunity to hear and speak, cochlear implants are necessary, they are very expensive.

Challenge

Parents of children who need hearing aid regularly address to our Fund. They cannot pay the implants themselves due to the high cost. From the state parents can receive them only in a few years. But the speech apparatus for children is formed up to a maximum of 4 years, so it is important to do this as soon as possible so that the brain learns to recognize sounds and the child could learn to speak. We accept a new child only if the previous similar collection is completed. So it"s too long.

Solution

The project will help to buy implants for little Miroslav and give him opportunity to hear and speak. The cost of the implant for Miroslav is 27 000$. This is a very large sum for the Ukrainian family. Now the baby is a year old and it is time for hearing aids and the opportunity to give him hearing and speech.

Long-Term Impact

The purpose of the project is to raise 27 000$. This sum will allow the Charity Fund Pomogaem to get the implant system and in this way to help at least one baby with deafness on both ears. This step focuses on attracting attention to hearing problems in Ukraine, to the health of children and the nation as a whole.
