Giving “hearing smiles” to children around the world
When you talk to an audiologist, you may hear him or her talk about a “hearing smile”: the moment a child can hear for the first time. The Hearing the Call Fund was launched by Toledo, OH audiologist Dr. Randa Mansour-Shousher and her husband, Hussien Shousher, to support organizations providing hearing healthcare in the United States and internationally. The Hearing the Call Fund will primarily support humanitarian missions that provide hearing aids to impoverished residents and refugees, primarily children, in the Middle East.Click here to watch Seedra hear her name for the first time
Dr. Mansour-Shousher, speaking about a recent visit, says:
We were able to serve close to 400 people, but the need is so great that many were left whom we couldn’t help. Such large numbers of needy were waiting for us that we’ve had to turn away adults and treat only children. From morning to evening, we literally never stopped. But we keep going: knowing that we’ve opened up their world to the hearing world – it’s amazing.
Through this fund, the Shoushers will help bring hope to the thousands that go without basic hearing health care. A $500 gift will provide hearing assistance for one child: with your help we can bring back opportunity and access to education for these children.
Together we can give the hearing smile to hundreds of children who deserve a chance to thrive and achieve.Give to this Fund
