47 GIFTS OF HEARING DURING 2018

47-GIFTS-OF-HEARING

We are extremely proud about the total of 47 GIFTS OF HEARING provided to people with hearing loss in 2018…

 

Looking back at the Cochlear Implant procedures performed, facilitated and orchestrated by our professional team of expert doctors and surgeons; together with our successful Cochlear Implant Division at the Ear Institute Pretoria, we are very thankful that we could be part of these life-changing operations.

29 of these operations was made possible by the support and contributions from donors and partners who supported the Foundation for Children with Hearing Loss in South Africa during the year.

We are humbled and very grateful towards each donor for all the support we received in 2018.  Every donation changed the life of someone in need. 

The gift of hearing is a lasting gift that our patients will benefit from for the rest of their lives.

Thank you to everyone who believed in the gift of hearing during 2018!

The Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for people with hearing loss, creating a sustainable future for people with hearing loss, inspire, educate, develop and empower an entire community, create fresh perspectives and innovative solutions, promote social welfare, encourage poverty alleviation and generate a lasting change.

The Forever Golf Day raised a total of R189 093.01 and the funds were paid over directly to the foundation to help three children (Haley Smit, 4, Ronisha Malander, 4, and Mulweli Makhuva, 9) to pay for their cochlear implants.

Mulweli underwent his operation on Monday, 19 November 2018 and will now be going through the process of slowly training his brain to hear again as he lost his hearing due to illness some years ago.

We would like to thank Forever Forever Resorts South Africa, the Golfers, and all the wonderful sponsors who participated in this successful Golf Day, supporting the cause and making such a huge difference in the lives of children with hearing loss.  Without you, your passion and your selfless generosity this would not have been possible.
