Zambia covers over 290,000 square miles of rural villages, which means that opportunities like healthcare and education come sparingly, if ever. For someone suffering hearing loss, a chance at education severely diminishes, the likelihood of finding a job decreases, and safety becomes a serious concern. Even more so, it can be extremely difficult to connect with family members and friends. Most are left without hope that anything could ever change.
But hearing can transform someone’s life no matter where they live! There’s nothing like watching a hearing smile splash onto a child’s face when they hear for the first time. Empowering a mom to hear her kids, a husband to hear his wife, a kid to go to school, a co-worker to hear her boss, or a grandparent to hear his grandchildren… these are worth traveling any distance.
That’s why we took a team of some of the best audiologists in the country to Zambia. They each run successful practices, bring state-of-the-art equipment, and give personalized care to every single patient, just like they would at home. We believe by partnering with the community and offering such care, we’re truly making a difference in the world. A hearing smile means joy in any language.
