Starkey Hearing Foundation Returns to Israel-Palestine to Promote Peace Through Better Hearing
Date:3/7/2012

ar. So after seeing the true impact we were able to make in the lives of those individuals and communities we were able to help during last year's mission to the region, we were anxious to get back and do it again," said Austin. "In our ongoing desire to deliver the gift of hearing to those in need, we thank our Israeli partners and the Palestinian people for giving us this opportunity."

In fact, Hatim, a local volunteer from last year's hearing mission to Israel-Palestine, was so impacted by the experience that he returned to assist during this year's second mission. He let the Starkey team know that being a part of the mission experience gave him the courage and drive to go to engineering school, which he now attends. In regards to Starkey Hearing Foundation's two hearing missions to the region, Hatim said, "It shows that some people, they care about us."

Starkey Hearing Foundation's first mission to Israel-Palestine took place on May 24-26, 2011. The team spent three days fitting 1,000 Palestinians with hearing aids. Patients hailed from as far as Hebron in the South, to Jenin in the North and ranged in age from four to 75. The mission drew the attention of Israeli President Shimon Peres, who acknowledged Austin and the Foundation for their work during a gala dinner presented by Sheba Medical Center in the Foundation's honor.

According to Starkey Hearing Foundation, hearing loss is pervasive, affecting 63 million children alone worldwide. Yet, with the help of a hearing device, hearing loss can often be corrected in a majority cases, giving an individual the opportunity to better connect with their family, the community, and the world around them.

Hearing missions are the primary way Starkey Hearing Foundation realizes its goal So the World May Hear. Each year, the Foundation conducts hearing missions both in the U.S. and internationally, and has set a goal of fitting 1,000,000 hearing aids by the end of this decade.  '/>"/>
