DIAGNOSING AND TREATING HEARING LOSS

In the Dominican Republic, a severe hearing loss is misinterpreted as a form of mental retardation. Many of the children are rejected from school. A hearing aid can salvage the lives of these unfortunate children. All of the aids are provided by our mission at no cost to the children. We also provide any subsequent adjustments, repairs and batteries. A Dominican Audiologist has begun to work with the mission and provides the needed repairs and adjustments through the year.
