Overcoming the Challenges of Hearing Impairment

According to the World Health Organization, more than 275 million people worldwide are deaf or hearing impaired.

Children with hearing impairment can experience delays in the development of speech, language and cognitive skills. In adults, hearing impairment and deafness can make it difficult to obtain and keep employment.  Hearing impaired children and adults are often socially stigmatized and isolated.

Lions service activities for people who are deaf or have a hearing impairment may include:

  • Hearing impairment awareness campaigns
  • Hearing screenings  
  • Hearing aid recycling program
  • Recreational camps for the deaf and hearing impaired 
  • Projects for the deaf and hearing impaired community
