Years back, Samuel noticed that over time, his hearing dwindled. It all began with him tuning on high TV/ Radio volume and speaking very loudly.
He recently decided to visit Kijabe hospital for a review. After his tests were completed, the doctors confirmed loss of hearing and recommended he be fitted for hearing aids. The cost to acquire them was however too high for Samuel to afford. The former public transport driver was forced to quit his job as he could not manage. He currently doesn’t attend church.
Samuel and his wife tend to their small farm to sustain their needs. They live in their two-room rental house in a suburb in Nairobi. Their two children are grown and living off on their own. They are not able to raise the funds needed and thus appealing for help.
“I will be more than happy to get my life back. I would lie to attend church and family gatherings comfortably,” says Samuel.
