Early Hearing Detection and Intervention is not usually done on all newborns in Panama.  The Fundacion Oir es Vivir aims to do hearing detection in orphanages, child care centers, pre-school, and children to age six. In capturing hearing problems at an early age, and doing the appropriate intervention, such as the use of a  hearing aid the child can lead  a normal academic and behavioral progress, and become productive in his/her life.  Quality of life improved!

Thanks to our work, we feel very excited that the @fundacionrafaelmezaayau has accepted our invitation, to learn about the local work we do, on its way to implement, in El Salvador, its #hearinghealth project. We were visited by Karen Massana, Director of Projects and Administration, Renata Martínez, Technical Projects and we also had the pleasant company of Elisa Gamero, Coordinator of Health and Nutrition Projects of the Office of the First Lady of El Salvador. We are happy to inspire causes beyond our border!   

After a two years pause due to COVID-19, we were able to restart our hearing tour in Panama. In order to conmemorate the International Good Deeds Day, on saturday, April 2nd, the FOV's teams members and volunteers participated in this activity. In las Claras Abajo, Capira in the province of Panama Oeste, we were able to test more than 130 children and teach them and their families about hearing health. You can watch this video for more information on our tour: https://m.facebook.com/oiresvivir.pa/videos/ya-son-18-giras-que-hemos-realizado-en-diferentes-lugares-retirados-de-las-ciuda/493763599045852/?refsrc=deprecated&_rdr

We are staying active in our community and will be sharing more news soon!

ONE MINUTE IN SILENCE CAMPAIGN 
For the first time in the Foundation´s history we participated in this campaign virtually, since every year we had activities around the city to create awareness. During this year´s campaign, we received support from several local and international celebrities and personalities. With more than 1000 posts tagging the #solo1minuto, we were able to gather people located in different parts of our country and the world, to join this day for one minute of silence, in creating awareness regarding auditive conditions and how noise can affect every person. 
  
#QuieroVerteSonreir-We want to see you smile

Our new campaign that started on May 2020 focuses on selling clear masks, ideally for hearing impaired people so they can continue reading lips. Nonetheless, people also miss being able to give smiles this is why we made it the main topic of our campaign related to smiles. Currently there are two ways people can help:

One is my making a donation for $10 or more, and we ship the mask to them directly.

The second is donating $10 for one of our sister foundations, Aldeas SOS in order to keep children safe and wearing face masks, or we send them to Hogar Bolívar, a nursing home for old people or handicapped people. 

When people make the donation, they are able to specify what they want their donation

to go.
