Welcome to Sound Seekers
Sound Seekers is dedicated to helping deaf people, particularly children, in the poorest communities of the developing world. We work in partnership with local organisations to deliver sustainable and cost-effective projects that advance understanding of deaf people's needs and improve their access to health services, education, and social support, together with initiatives that enable people to avoid, or overcome, the effects of deafness
Hear in Malawi appeal
A child born in Malawi is more than twice as likely to be deaf as a child born in the developed world. Yet Malawi has no free public audiology services. This means that people cannot get the medical or social support they need – deaf children cannot finish school and deaf adults struggle to find, and stay in, work.
The Hear in Malawi Appeal, supported by UK Aid and Specsavers Hearing Centres, is raising money to build, equip and staff a comprehensive audiology service based at the region’s largest hospital and will help over ten thousand children and adults within three years. We are training African staff to identify hearing loss – and treat it – and help deaf people so that they can go to school and find work. What’s more, every single pound you give is doubled by the UK government if you donate by 20 January 2015, meaning that we can help twice as many deaf people in need.
Please DONATE NOW and change a life today.
You can also donate by text, just send HEAR50 followed by £2 / £5 / £10 to 70070, and by cheque, made payable to ‘Sound Seekers’ (enclosing a note titled ‘Hear in Malawi’)
