The prevalence of deafness in India is fairly significant. It is the second most common cause of disability. Approximately 63 million people (6.3%) in India suffer from significant auditory loss. Rehabilitation of hearing impaired children in India remains a challenging task. Early detection and intervention are the mainstay of this initiative . We at Jeevan’s Gift Fondation are working closely with local organisation on a programme in Kapurthala to help impaired children and make difference to their lives.
The Programme is generating following benefits:
Distribution of Hearing Aids to Children in Kapurthala, also providing various services like prevention, early identification, treatment,referral,rehablilitation etc for hearing impairment and deafness.
Improved Service Network with for people with hearing impairment in Kapurthala.
Awareness creations amongst grassroots workers and families of the children.
Community participation to prevent hearing loss through village bodies.
