Hearing Without Borders is an initiative of the Jordanian Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, and its objective is to eliminate hearing impairments by inserting cochlea implants. Every year, about 300 children are born in Jordan with hearing impairments, causing them to suffer significant disadvantages in everyday life. Together with Prof. Dr. Annette Limberger and others, Hearing Without Borders works to give these people a better life. Annette Limberger is Professor in the Faculty of Ophthalmic Optics and Audiology at Aalen University, and established the contact between VARTA Microbattery and the Jordanian initiative.

VARTA Microbattery has now presented further hearing aid batteries of the premium power one brand to Sakher Al Fayez, Manager of the Hearing Without Borders Initiative, and his team. These innovative and powerful batteries by the leader in this technology are the optimum power sources for cochlea implants. The presentation of the hearing aid batteries continues the long tradition of donation campaigns by VARTA Microbattery, and shows once more that the company is well aware of its social responsibility.
