Healing the Children

ENT Medical Trip to Nicaragua

Hearing Clearly

Late in 2014, the Illinois/Indiana Chapter of Healing the Children sponsored an ENT-based medical mission to Nicaragua. This trip was screening-only, during which we found four young women with moderate-to severe hearing loss. All of them could be helped with hearing aids, yet all came from poor families without the ways or means to obtain such devices. Upon returning from Nicaragua, we partnered with Mayflower Medical Outreach (MMO) an auditory aid organization with an office in Nicaragua, and referred the girls to them. Working with MMO and our HTC friends and contacts in Nicaragua, the girls were ultimately fitted with new hearing aids, absolutely free of cost. Here is a picture of one of them, hearing clearly the sounds of our world for the first time. Behind her was her mom, crying with joy and gratitude.
