The National Foundation for Deaf and Hard of Hearing promoted World Hearing Day in a number of different ways.

– We shared an interactive filter across our social media platforms promoting safe listening.
– We shared the WHO materials and other WHD posts on social media – Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn (total reach 13,000)
