The World Health Organization estimates that there are over 125 million deaf people worldwide, two thirds of these live in the developing world where only ten per cent of deaf children receive any education at all.
Hearing is one of a child's most precious senses. Through hearing children develop language and communication skills, marvel at the sounds of our bustling world, learn to read, appreciate music and be warned of approaching danger. Hearing loss does not put an end to all this if amplification is provided early. Often, by acting early and selecting the right technological solutions, such sounds, including speech can still be accessed.
Canadian Aid Charity is developing assistance program for people who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford hearing aids. The work of Canadian Aid Charity is supported through the contributions of its benefactors. All donations – monetary, time and hearing aids – allow this project to survive and provide the gift of hearing to individuals and families with limited financial resources.
Through its dedicated staff, Canadian Aid Charity is constantly working to raise both money and awareness for the project. We gladly accept donations of old, used and no longer used hearing aids.
