Challenge

In Ukraine there are about 300,000 children with hearing impairment who require hearing aid and rehabilitation. If a child does not undergo cochlear implant surgery followed by a rehabilitation before the age of 5, a child will never regain speech and hearing. Post-surgery rehabilitation is critical for young patients. Without it a child will never be able to hear and speak.

Solution

We will provide post-surgery rehabilitation for 35 deaf children at a wellness camp in Ukraine. In the course of 12 days the qualified specialists will develop personalized corrective programs to help deaf children to restore hearing and teach them language skills to further promote their rehabilitation, social adaptation and happy life.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help 35 deaf children to hear and speak and will give them the opportunity to live a full, independent and active life, get an education by restoring their hearing and language. These children will become healthy, active and successful citizens. Our future projects will enable us to help many other children with hearing problems and to increase the number of healthcare specialists in regional medical centers assisting children with hearing and language problems.
