Our Work Continues
A pupil at St Joseph’s School for the Deaf, Makeni, Sierra Leone
Thanks to generous donations from the States of Jersey Overseas Aid Commission, we are about to start a targeted paediatric screening project in Makeni in Sierra Leone and a tele-audiology project in Malawi and Zambia. This is a new departure for us, as we have previously focused on providing mobile outreach vehicles to our partner countries. We hope that this will open up new ways of helping deaf people in Africa.
Emily has been working hard, travelling to Cameroon to negotiate for our new project there and then on to The Gambia with Laura Finegold to support the Sound Seekers HARK team. Laura Finegold is a UK Audiologist currently training on the NHS Scientist Training Programme (STP). For her six week elective, she is in The Gambia working with the Sound Seekers HARK team. She raised approximately £3,500 to fund her trip and the cost of further equipment needed for the project. Thank you Laura!
