Pacific Hearing Connections - Chibombo Mission
Zambia Africa

Meet Sylvia. She has not developed speech because of a hearing loss. We fit her with hearing aids and now her father has hope for her future which includes going to school.

Chibombo - is a district of Central Province, Zambia, and has a population of 241,612 people. Because more than half of Zambians are sixteen years old or younger, the country's educational system faces an incredible burden. Children with hearing loss are at an increased risk of dropping out of school and not receiving an education simply because they lack access to hearing aids.

Chibombo District Zambia Hearing Mission
Project Description:
* To supply screenings and hearing tests for individuals in the remote areas of the Chibombo District in Zambia. To fit hearing aids on children and adults in need.
* To provide training and continuing education to implement satellite services that can originate from the clinic in Chibombo and be taken into the surrounding communities.
* To provide follow-up services for previously fit patients including custom ear molds, reprograming and routine clean and checks of hearing aids.
* To provide training and a long distance learning program to Samual Fundiwa, a volunteer that has been interested in becoming an audiology assistant so that he can maintain the clinic year round.

Pacific Hearing Connection serves low-income children and adults who are in need of treatment for hearing loss. Our program structure makes hearing aids and hearing care possible for many low-income individuals in our community who otherwise would not be able to afford them. Our clinics provide hearing screenings and hearing tests; fitting of hearing aid technology; hearing aids and related apparatus; hearing aid maintenance and repairs; and follow up care after initial treatment. We are able to fit individuals with new and gently used reprogrammable donated hearing aids collected through our community donation program. Our vision is that no person is prevented from full participation in life due to hearing loss.
