CSC & Hearing-Impaired Kids

February 7, 2024

What can your support do for disabled children? Please consider a contribution to the support of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. CSC's recent OUTREACH:

Last week, a team from CSC's Ear, Nose & Throat Dept. conducted an outreach program with Jean-Paul Beraha, Founder & President Les Enfants Sourds du Cambodge, at multiple schools for children with hearing impairments - doing ear examinations for 150 students over 4 days. These visits can offer access to healthcare and facilitation of medical services, including hearing tests and other necessary interventions. Our outreach helps to raise awareness about hearing impairment within communities to reduce stigma and promote inclusivity. Thank you, Jean-Paul, for arranging this, and supporting CSC's Outreach for hearing-impaired children.

If you'd like to support medical care for hearing-impaired children, join our Donor Portal and ask to have your donation geared to children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
