Title: Hearing Camps for children and senior citizens

Description:

We organized and collaborated to arrange 2 separate hearing camps:

1) A hearing test drive was conducted on World Hearing Day for 20 children at Ramchandra Kurulkar Bahuuddeshiya Shikshan Sansthan, Panvel – a residential orphanage for hearing loss.

2) In addition, a Hearing Screening Camp was organized at and in collaboration with Saifee Hospital on March 12, 2023, on the occasion of World Hearing Day and was attended by 30 participants; of which 90% were senior citizens in the age group of 75 years. The camp saw patients often being confused about their hearing loss condition being an age-related issue. However, after counseling and undertaking hearing aid trials they were satisfied. 5 patients were counseled to undergo cochlear implants as per their diagnosis.

The above 2 camps ensured hearing care for all age groups was taken into consideration.
