A hearing aid or deaf aid is an electro-acoustic device which is designed to amplify sound for the wearer, usually with the aim of making speech more intelligible, and to correct impaired hearing as measured by audiometry. Only a relatively small portion of adult hearing problems, such as ear infection and middle ear diseases, are medically or surgically treatable. If the condition cannot be treated medically or surgically, hearing aids may be beneficial.
(Rotarian) PHF.G.A.W.G Galgamuwa organized a Donation Campaign of hearing aid along with the Rotary Club Kandy, Sri Lanka. The main intention of this project was to donate hearing aids for people who are unable to buy them due to their Economic status. After considering some facts, such as Age, Medical Status, etc the hearing aids are donated. More than 100 hearing aids have been donated among adults and children from May 2014 onwards. One device costs around Sri Lankan Rs.75, 000/=. This project is only for Sri Lankan citizens. The main Donor of this project is Honorary Member Rotarian Gunter Volkman (Denmark) and Coordinator is Rotarian P.H.F John Baskaran (Rotary club of Kandy-Sri Lanka).
Initially our organization donated hearing aids among Adults (Age below 70) as well as children.
But now we are only concerned about children.
The following Criteria will be applied in future
