Jane works as a house help in western Kenya and has struggled with her hearing for the past 5 years. The hearing loss started when she had Quinine medication administered. The gradual hearing loss has affected her social lifestyle and most of the time she misses out on conversations. Jane has not been to any hospital previously. She was referred to our facility where an audiometry test was done and hearing loss diagnosis made.
Her small income of $30 per month is all she earns to care for her late sister’s children. Jane requires $929 for the hearing aids. She appeals for financial assistance.
Jane says, “My hope is to be able to socially converse with people without having to ask them to repeat what they said.”
