We at the Table View Lions Club, in conjunction with our twin Lions Club Frankenthal in Germany, provide needy deaf children in South Africa with new and second-hand/reconditioned hearing aids.
This life changing project provides thousands of under-privileged deaf children with the opportunity to develop, and live normal lives with these essentially required hearing aids.
Our recipients are institutions who can vouch for only underprivileged children benefitting from the donations. These institutions also have the expertise and funding to fit and maintain the donated hearing aids. Maintenance includes ensuring on-going availability of batteries and configuration.
The Worcester Hospital in the Cape Winelands district of South Africa today (12 Mar 2013) received a donation of hearing aids to the value of over R500k ($45000)
Since its inception in 2011 this Table View Lions Club Hearing Aid Project donated hearing aids to the value of close to ZAR10 million ($1,1 million).
The Table View Lions project co-ordinators for this project are Gisela Weitz and Dylin Kuni.
