10 YEARS!!!!! THANKS FUNDACION OIR ES VIVIR

By Gabriela Mejia | Project Leader

TEN YEARS!!!!!!! FUNDACION OIR ES VIVIR….. doing GREAT!!!!!

 

Giving the "Gift of Sound" to those who can not listen, was what in 2008 motivated Dr. Cynthia Guy to start the operations of Fundación Oír es Vivir en Panamá. Motivated by a family affection, the doctor lives deafness first hand and decides to undertake the work to help others.

 

In the first three years of operation, 18 patients were implanted, between children and adults; and they are supported by language therapies. This solution, however, is very expensive, so new strategies are sought to continue providing more accessible support.

 

Since 2011, the Foundation makes a turn to benefit a greater number of patients and that is when the Comprehensive Center for Hearing Health (CISA) is formed, a complete facility that offers all audiological services under one roof, thus facilitating to patients and their families, greater possibilities of accessing solutions that are within their reach.

 

Today and under the direction of its President Giovanna Troncoso, mother who lives through two of her children's hearing loss, we provide services both at the Center and through a mobile program that reaches schools, companies, shelters, foundations, rural and indigenous communities in our country.
