Sponsorship for Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are to amplify the sound surrounding a deaf person, example, when someone calls their name or sound of safety and danger from the beeping of pedestrian crossing or honks from the vehicles. Throughout the year 2017 and 2018, Majudiri ‘Y’ Foundation for the Deaf (MYF) had sponsored four Deaf individuals in purchasing of hearing aids for their personal use. Among the four receiver, three of them are employees of YMCA of Kuala Lumpur and another individual is a member of the YMCA KL Deaf Club. Their old hearing aids had suffered a lot of wear & tear and need to be changed. Hence, Ms. Morley Ng who is working in YMCA KL under Pusat Majudiri ‘Y’ (Deaf Work)  who knows Sign Language, had assisted the Deaf colleagues to do the fitting of hearing aid at their preferred store. After the fitting of hearing aid, the receivers can now enjoy the benefits of a new pair of hearing aids.
