Sound Seekers is a small UK registered charity helping adults and children with hearing loss in Africa to access hearing healthcare and education.

Worldwide there are 466 million people in the world living with disabling hearing loss, yet two-thirds live in developing countries where access to audiology services is usually limited or non-existent. There are life-changing consequences for people with hearing loss without access to healthcare or education. Undiagnosed or untreated hearing loss can cause social exclusion and reduce vocational or educational opportunities.

Sound Seekers (The Commonwealth Society for the Deaf) delivers practical solutions to support people with hearing loss to realise their rights by enabling access to hearing healthcare and education. Currently we work in five countries: Cameroon, The Gambia, Malawi, Sierra Leone, and Zambia. 

Sometimes it only takes a little to make a huge impact.

To give you an idea of costs, a single donation of:

£10 could enable someone to have their hearing tested.

£20 could train a teacher in hearing loss awareness and how to effectively support a child with hearing loss in class.

£100 could provide an otoscope for examining the ear.

£500 could cover the costs of two outreach trips to screen for hearing loss in remote rural locations.

£1,500 could provide a diagnostic audiometer to accurately assess hearing loss.

Being a small charity of just five, long term support makes a huge difference to our work. Setting up a monthly donation of:

£5 could enable us to refurbish old hearing aids and send across our project countries.

£10 could enable an outreach visit to screen school children for hearing loss in rural and remote areas using our HARK vehicles

£20 could support a professional volunteer Audiologist to train local nurses.
