St. Vincent's students
We are thrilled to share news of our hearing aid program in Haiti. Thanks to your generous support and our partnership with Team Canada Healing Hands, we were able to provide 15 digital hearing aids for students at St. Vincent's Center for Handicapped Children in Port-au-Prince!
Our partners, Team Canada Healing Hands conducted the hearing clinic where audiologists ran extensive testing on each child while audioprosthetists fit and programmed the hearing aids. Your donations provided the hardware: 15 brand new digital hearing aids that should last a minimum of 4 years, customized for each individual’s hearing loss.
We produced a short video that gives a virtual tour of the hearing clinic at St. Vincent's and shows how your contribution makes a differene. We hope you'll take a look (click on the link below entitled "Hearing Aid Video") and share this project with others. With your continued support, every hearing-impaired child at St. Vincent's will benefit from this gift!
