International Day for Ear and Hearing
March 3 is the International Day for Ear and Hearing, aimed to raise ear and hearing health awareness through community activities and education. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are over 275 million deaf or hearing-impaired people in the world.
As a Lion, you can make a difference and offer help for the hearing impaired.
Hearing projects include:
- Organize a hearing screening for children
- Collect recycled hearing aids
- Raise funds to provide dog guides for the hearing impaired
- Raise community awareness and education
For more hearing project success stories and ideas, check out the Lions Sight & Sound newsletter.
