Starkey Hearing Foundation  Global #nonprofit that provides #hearing aids to people in need. Alone we can’t do much, #together we can #change the #world.

Today's meeting with @usaforunhcr, the UN Refugee Agency, in Switzerland was a great success! We discussed global partnerships in the provision of ear and hearing healthcare services to refugees around the world. There are many exciting projects ahead for #StarkeyCares!

This young girl is 8 years old. She used to be a very dynamic and talkative student but after a high fever she developed hearing loss and became very quiet and reserved. School became difficult because she could not understand the lessons. Her family took her to many hospitals and clinics with hope that there would be a way to help her, but knew that they could not afford hearing aids. They felt extremely lucky when they heard about a #StarkeyCares mission coming to #Vietnam. She received hearing aids last year and since then has been able to return to a normal way of life again. #AftercareSuccess

Did you hear Billy Crystal talking to @jimmyfallon about his time in #Peru with us on @FallonTonight? Here are some of our #favorite moments from that incredible mission. #giveback #philanthropy

Today is International #DayoftheGirl! According to the @unitednations, educated and skilled workers are in great demand, but roughly a quarter of young people – most of them female – are currently neither employed nor in education or training. In addition to fitting women of all ages with hearing devices, we work to equip them with skills and resources to incorporate hearing into life so they can achieve their full potential in life. #StarkeyCares.

Last week we completed our fifth annual #StarkeyCares mission in #Afghanistan with the @bayatfoundation. This year we provided hearing care to more than 1,500 Afghans. Since 2014, the combined efforts have provided the gift of hearing and vital hearing aftercare assistance to more than 7,000 Afghans living in every region of the nation.

Allia is 14 years old and her mother observed her having hearing problems from a pre-school age. She was later diagnosed by an ENT when she was 8 with severe profound hearing loss. Allia was fit with hearing aids in June by our team in #Kingstown. Her mom expressed gratitude when we saw her for after care last month, saying she has improved in all aspects of academics. #AftercareSuccess #philanthopy #giveback

This boy was being sent from #Afghanistan to #Pakistan for a cochlear implant operation, which would cost his family thousands. Before getting the operation, his family thought he should try hearing aids. We fit him at our phase 2 mission and watch what happened! #StarkeyCares

Our #purpose is simple: Give the #gift of #hearing to those in need, empowering them to #achieve their potential. #StarkeyCares

We believe #hearing is a vehicle to reflect #caring and to improve the lives of individuals, their families, and communities. Help us continue to fit people around the world with devices that will change their world forever. #StarkeyCares

Lisa is a student at Meru Primary School in #Tanzania. She was fit with hearing aids in 2014 and came to our service center for aftercare last month. She had a loose earmold so we replaced it and made sure she was not hearing any feedback. Her teacher told our team that the hearing aids have really made a difference in Lisa's education and she is more verbal with her peers. #StarkeyCares #AftercareSuccess

#Kisses and #smiles were in store for our team as they gave the gift of hearing in #Peru! #StarkeyCares
