REGINA, July 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Lisa Richardson, Director and owner of Regina Hearing Services was excited to announce that she will be traveling with Starkey Hearing Foundation to China to deliver the gift of hearing. The team will give away more than 6,000 hearing aids to children and adults in need.
For 10 days, Lisa will be working with a team of audiologists and staff delivering the gift of hearing by fitting each of the recipients with their very own custom-made hearing devices, thus, giving them the ultimate opportunity to develop speech and language.
This year Lisa's daughter - Lindsay Ledingham will also join this team. Lindsay is pursuing a career in audiology after completion of her current University basketball commitment.
"We are so excited to be joining Starkey Hearing Foundation on this mission," said Lisa Richardson. "I find these missions extremely rewarding and this will be the 10th mission I have had the honor to work on. The Foundation is bringing understanding to people around the world through hearing care. We here at Regina Hearing Services are honored to do our part in delivering the gift of hearing to those in need."
Starkey Hearing Foundation's China mission is just one of the many missions that are conducted throughout the year to deliver the gift of hearing around the world. As a member of President Clinton's Global Initiative, Starkey Hearing Foundation has pledged to fit one million hearing aids by the end of the decade.
