The work we do is life-changing. For a person with profound hearing loss, life is filled with challenges. The impacts on family, social, educational and work-lives are very real and often debilitating. This is why we try to make the benefits of a cochlear implant more easily attainable.
As a registered charity operating as a not-for-profit, we aim to keep our fees and costs to a minimum in an effort to make cochlear implant technology accessible to as many people as possible. But because demand often exceeds Whaikaha (Ministry of Disabled People) funding, we look to fundraising and charitable donations to help those in real need.
