Title: Hearing aid fitting campaign and hearing screening


Oir para Crecer (OPC) organized a massive hearing aid fitting and screening campaign during the celebration of World Hearing Day. During this campaign, we fitted children of all ages and adults, especially seniors. It was a full-day campaign with the participation of the whole OPC team. We performed this activity in a public school, provide training for the parents and caregivers of the elderly, and explained the best way to take care of the hearing aids. We also performed some hearing screenings on the relatives who accompanied the patients. This campaign required a lot of previous work, but the results were completely worth it.
