Associates in Hearing have aligned itself with Entheos Audiology Cooperative, a non-profit that helps underprivileged people around the world gain access to hearing healthcare. In April 2017, Dr. Patricia Reiff went on a mission trip to Amman, Jordan to help those living in refugee camps. Given its success, we plan to continue our mission trip work moving forward while also forming a non-profit to help those living in the Lansdale Community.
This February, our own Sean Reiff is traveling to Guatemala to provide hearing healthcare to men, women, and children experiencing hearing loss.
The practice of hearing healthcare is a privilege. We believe trips like these are important because we want to provide the best hearing healthcare to people across the world and here at home in Lansdale. We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to live their best life.
We saw this little girl when we were in Guatemala. She was 11 years old. She had a bead in her ear that had been there since she was a little tiny toddler. She used to complain of her ear hurting every night when she went to bed. It was just a little plastic bead that had been there for nine years. It’s that crazy, hard to imagine,” says one of the doctors on the trip.
Thousands go without basic hearing healthcare which impacts lives. Kids are unable to go to school, learn and make friends while adult isolates themselves for fear of embarrassment and safety reasons.
With your help, Associates in Hearing can travel to Guatemala to give kids and adults a chance to realize their potential. With support from people like you, we will have the chance to potentially screen more than a thousand people mostly kids in Panajachel, Guatemala.
There has never been a better opportunity to make your gift count and give the gift of hearing. With audiologists and volunteers from around the country, we have the opportunity to change the trajectory of people’s lives. But we need your help! Please give today.
