The hearing aid program can help so many people smile. As with John-John, the feeling seeing him smile is truly wonderful. In 1999-2000 Richard Manual, myself, and a few others were able to gather over 40 pairs of hearing aids for the hearing impaired people of the Philippines.
In April of 2000, Mr. Manual went to the PI. With the help of an audiologist and the PI doctors made his way to Tabanok to fit the hearing aids. Using donated materials, he cleaned and then tested the individuals hearing loss. After the testing was complete an ear-mold was taken. These would later be brought back to the US for a more exact and longer lasting mold would be made and then the finished mold would be sent .
The demand of course greatly outnumbered the supply. So we again hope to get any type and style of working hearing aids. Non-working will also be accepted with the hope that future repairs could be made.
For the Filipino people, all styles of hearing aids are acceptable. In the PI, the people only wish to hear again, or even for the first time.
Please consider donating used or even new hearing aids. What else? How about...
In the future, we hope to get pictures of the children to help you see that there really is a need. And when you do give, remember, 100% of your gift will be donated to help the children of the Philippines.
Today, J-J goes to school for deaf children. The overall school conditions in the Philippines is not the greatest but they are adequate. But for the deaf children, school is not so. Because there is so much poverty, people with disabilities are mainly forgotten. On the island of Cebu, where John-John goes, there is only one school for the hearing impaired. of the 4 million people who live in Cebu, 25,000 have hearing loss. Of those, only a handful can afford school and even to get in.
J-J is lucky. Very lucky. Being that his cousin is able to help, and that the school is desperate for financial assistance for us and hopefully you, J-J is able to go to school. He is crazy about going to school and comes home excited as he talks with his hands. He so enjoys school that on the weekends he sometimes gets upset if he is not allowed to go to school. He hasn't figured out that school is closed on the weekend.
J-J is the only one in his class to have a hearing aid. Scholl resources are very minimal if at all available. Any type of resource would be gladly accepted. From text books to crayons. Don't worry about the donated materials being in English. The English language is widely spoken in the Philippines.
We also are aware that the signing used in the PI is different then that used in the USA. But learning has no boundaries.
Ideas for school donations
Supplies (any style or type)
All donations will be shipped once a shipping box is filled. The cost is $125 to ship the box with unlimited weight. 100% of your donations will be given to the children of the Philippines.
1$ -- 5$ -- $$ or more would be great.
Any help here is of course appreciated. But it is understood that this is for some people to risky. So, materials goods are still very welcome.
