power one supports the project “Help for little ears” (Hilfe für kleine Ohren)
In many countries around the world children with hearing impairments cannot get adequate care. Unfortunately this has a severe impact on the language and speech development of small children. The ability to learn how to speak is directly linked to hearing. This has led the Lions Clubs across Germany to start up the campaign “Help for little ears”. As part of the campaign, second-hand hearing aids are being collected in hearing-aid collection boxes at audiologists, ENT doctors, ENT wards in hospitals, and pharmacies.
The hearing aid battery brand, power one is supporting the project “Help for little ears” by providing 18,000 hearing aid batteries.
The project “Help for little ears” wants to help in a sustainable way. Because not all the hearing aids are suitable for small children, they are also supplied to young people and adults who are in need. Only trained professionals fit the hearing aids and ensure after-care in the following countries – Bolivia, Congo, Nicaragua (Managua), Peru, the Philippines, South Africa (Soweto), Tanzania and Belarus.
