Providing Hearing Tests, Hearing Care & The Best Hearing Aids in Chiswick, West London
Delivering the gift of hearing to 300 Armenians
Deepak from Hearing Well is joining a hearing mission to Armenia, to provide technology and expertise to people in need.
It will be the first time a UK team has fitted devices in an overseas mission as part of the worldwide Starkey Foundation initiative – run by manufacturer Starkey Hearing Technologies - which has provided over 1.9million hearing devices in more than 100 countries.
Deepak Hearing Aid Audiologist from Hearing Well together with ten other hearing professionals and a seven-strong Starkey team from the UK head office will leave for Yerevan on 13 th October.
This trip will see the actual fitting of the hearing instruments, counselling and aftercare, working closely with a local medical team.
Deepak said the mission had been one of the most worthwhile things he had ever been involved in: “Meeting the people of Yerevan and those trying to help them on the ground will be a truly humbling and inspiring experience.
He continued: “I am really looking forward to this next stage where we will be able to actually fit the devices and ‘gift' better hearing to people who really need it.”
Providing access to hearing care opens up a whole new world of opportunity. It connects individuals to life and helps them accomplish more than they ever thought possible.
Hearing aids help bridge the gap at school, work and life for children and adults with hearing loss and the Foundation works to empower the people it helps toward a better life and knowing how they too can improve the lives of others.
By freely sharing expertise and time Hearing Well aims to help establish an ongoing community based hearing service in Yerevan.
According the World Health Organisation more than 360 million people have disabling hearing loss, with the greatest number living in developing countries. Unfortunately less than three per cent can afford hearing aids or access to care.
