HALIFAX, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Provinicial Hearing Services, today announced plans for the eight-day
hearing mission trip to Mombasa, Kisumu, and Nairobi, Kenya projected
to result in fitting more than 3,000 adults and children receiving over
6,000 hearing instruments. The hearing mission trip will be completed
in conjunction with the Starkey Hearing Foundation in an effort to
fulfill the Foundation's commitment to helping the world to hear.
"It is incredibly fulfilling to be a part of this hearing mission trip
and to do so much good in such a short amount of time. It's also very
humbling to experience the incredible need that exists in the world. I
feel honored to have the opportunity to bring the gift of hearing to so
many in need and proud to support the Starkey Hearing Foundation in its
mission," said Annette Cross, Owner of Provincial Hearing Services.
According to Annette, not only will those in need be fitted with
hearing instruments, they will also receive training on hearing
instrument care, maintenance and a supply of hearing instrument
Hearing mission trips are paid for by donations to the Starkey Hearing
Foundation. Every year at the Foundation's annual "So the World May
Hear" Awards Gala, attendees have an opportunity to bid during a live
auction to fund a hearing mission trip. A network of distributors of
Starkey Canada, a division of Starkey Laboratories, bid to fund the
Kenya mission, which will take place March 4-11. This will be the 7th mission Provincial Hearing Services has participated in.
