Hearing devices can improve the ability of a child with hearing loss to communicate with friends and family, learn to speak more clearly and understand their teachers at school.
On Sunday, children with hearing problems in Ahmedabad were given hearing aids as part of an initiative by a local start-up, ‘We Hear’, at an event hosted by the Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS).
Sonalben Shah, wife of Union Home & Cooperation Minister Amit Shah, who was the chief guest of the event, said, “It is much appreciated that ‘We Hear’ devices are given by the Society to help children hear with bone conduction. This helps many children to hear without any surgery.”
Sonalben was accompanied by her daughter-in-law Rishita Shah, who was the guest of honour.
