Hear The World Foundation - Nairobi Project

 

Since January 2010 power one has been supporting the `Nairobi` project of the Hear the World Foundation. We donate the hearing aid batteries for all the children provided for. In 2008 the Foundation set up a hearing centre in Kenya's capital city, to assist children with hearing loss free of charge.

It is children from socially disadvantaged families in particular who profit from this support. Without it, they would have no prospect of schooling and integration. The hearing centre has been set up at the Cargo Human Care Medical Center in Nairobi in close cooperation with Lufthansa Cargo. German ENT doctors regularly hold surgeries there, testing the children and, assisted by a hearing aid audiologist, fitting them with hearing aids. In addition, a self-help group has been formed for parents, and regular speech therapy provision is in the pipeline. Anyone who can afford to makes a nominal financial contribution.
