DEAR EDITOR, in the Solomon Islands there are many small children of school age, as young as 7 to 8, who are deaf and in need of hearing aids so they can attend school and improve their learning and education.
The San Isidore School on the outskirts of Honiara runs a school for the deaf but until many young children cannot acquire hearing aids and they are not going to school.
If any organization, or persons, would be kind enough to help by donating hearing aids suitable for young children in the Solomon Islands, I request they get in touch with me by using the link on my website – www.solomonislandsinfocus.com
Anything donated would be evaluated by qualified medical personnel at the Solomon Islands National Referral Hospital (NRH) to test for suitability before being given to a deaf child.
Please do help!
