Challenge

We will be able to replace Manuela's current hearing aids which no longer work. Manuela can hardly hear with her current devices anymore, due to her progressive hearing loss. It is also difficult for her to communicate and she is tending to isolate herself more, which greatly affects her educational performance and communication with her family and friends.

Solution

the problem: With the voluntary contributions of the people who join the cause, Fundacion Oyeme will help Manuela adapt to a new pair of state-of-the-art hearing aids, and will guarantee the support and monitoring of her hearing and communication development.

Long-Term Impact

Manuela will regain her independence. Her oral communication and comprehension will become more fluid, and her education will be simpler and more accessible. Manuela's life will retake its course towards her personal and professional fulfillment, preventing Manuela from isolating herself from the world and the people around her.
