Hear the World Foundation
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hear the World. All opinions are 100% mine.
Did you know that nearly 660,000 children around the world who are born with significant hearing loss each year? I had no idea but Hear the World knows and they are actively helping to solve this problem.
I cannot imagine having hearing loss and missing all of the beautiful sounds that the world makes. I would miss music, the laughter of my children, the song the birds sing outside my house each morning, the pounding of the ocean waves, the falling of rain, the thundering sound of my children's feet as they run through the house and so much more. A world where I could not hear would most definteily be a different world to live it.
I am certain that these children would feel the same way had the heard all of the sounds that I just described.
ABOUT HEAR THE WORLD
About 660,000 children are born annually with significant hearing loss. Hearing loss affects 15% of the world’s population yet it receives little recognition or acknowledgement. Nearly half the cases are preventable.
Hear the World promotes projects that support children with hearing loss, to enable them to develop at an appropriate rate for their age and to give access to school education. Since 2006, Hear the World has supported more than 50 projects across five continents and has already given countless people the chance of better hearing.
Hear the World Foundation envisions a world in which everyone has the opportunity to experience good hearing which is such an amazing vision. There is so much that we can do to support Hear the World and help those with hearing problems.
