The ROTARY CLUB OF MUMBAI LAKERS

Lakers Campaign for providing Hearing Aid for Kids

500 kids need hearing aid - come forward and donate for the cause, for life is worth listening to Noise is practically everywhere –– from loudspeakers to the cars honking in the streets.

Yet there are many among us for whom the world is silent. According to WHO, over 5% of the world’s population suffers from hearing loss. It may seem like a small percentage, but it translates to about 350 million people. Fortunately, modern technology has paved the way for innovations in support of those hard of hearing.

Devices that improve hearing by making sounds audible to the deaf have penetrated the market, while new medical procedures have emerged to treat the conditions which cause hearing loss. But a lot of work still needs to be done in terms of inclusion. There are many of us who are interested in foreign cultures and learning a foreign language, but not many people from the hearing and abled world even think of learning sign language.

This further compounds the number of challenges that hearing-impaired people face while integrating with the mainstream.
Deafness is as severe a handicap as blindness (if not worse). Being "invisible", it evokes no sympathy, unlike what one sees towards the blind. On the contrary, it is often the target of ridicule. Children born deaf face a world of silence, hence no speech, limited education, little chance of gainful employment and, therefore, a life of dependence and social isolation. Imagine the fate of children who are otherwise as intelligent and capable as any of us. If only we could restore their hearing, they would achieve anything that any of us or our children aspire for.

In the case of infants, it is easy to ignore hearing impairment as there is no outward manifestation. Hearing impairment is one of the most common birth defects seen these days. As the most critical years for the development of language skills are from birth to 5 years, early identification of hearing impairment enables us to give the child the enriched input they need to develop early listening, learning & speech skills.

Rotary Club of Mumbai Lakers is sensitive to the problems faced by hearing-impaired people and has started working with Shravani Speech and Hearing Centre, run by Miss Geetanjali Singh. Shravani Centre is conducting audiological assessment to quantify and qualify hearing in terms of the degree of hearing loss, type of hearing loss and the configuration of hearing loss. Once it has been identified, a treatment plan is put into place. This is where RCML partnered with Shravani Centre. We provided hearing aids to five children who needed them most urgently. Shravani Centre has a long list of children who need hearing aids, with varying degrees of hearing loss and urgency.

Many Lakers came forward and personally donated Rs. 47,500 required for each device. The children whose lives the Lakers touched are Anush Tiwari, Darpan Nikode, Venkateshwar Pillai, Arfat Khan and Vidhan Vasita. We would like to thank our donors Sony Suri, Tushar & Radhika Ullengal, Ravi & Kamya Jaswani, and other Lakers who wish to remain anonymous. We would like to extend special thanks to our Medical Director Eakta Menon.

There are many children who need our support to lead a normal life. Much more can be done with little help from your end. Please use the link below to donate http://www.ftcash.com/rotarylakerstrust
