Story

Ear disease is 100 times higher in sub–Saharan Africa (Malawi) then in the West. There are currently under 10 audiologists in the whole of Malawi - a population of 20 million. To put this into perspective, that is 1 audiologist per 2 million people. In the UK, there is 1 audiologist per 16,000 people - and the waiting list for hearing aid in the UK is upwards of 6 weeks - in some places

The need in Malawi is immense and EARS Inc have been working hard for the last 10 years to set up a Bachelor of Science in Audiology (BSc.Aud.) as well as working alongside the Ministry of Health to create audiology roles within the healthcare system.

The first graduation ceremony took place back in 2021 (no thanks to COVID!) and the newly qualified audiologists were employed by the ABC Hearing Clinic where they are working hard to serve the local community with their hearing difficulties as well as doing a number of outreaches to villages and schools.

In a few weeks (June 2023) the hearing clinic will be welcoming another 8 new graduates onto the staff team and as soon as positions become available within the healthcare system they will be able to move over to their new roles.

We are so excited to be able to work with EARS Inc and to train up more audiologists in this beautiful country where it will really make a huge difference to so many lives!

We would love for you to partner with us through sponsorship and help us change the lives of those who need it most.

    So much has happened in the 8 months since we arrived! We have done ALOT of admin, trained students, met with government and the Ministry of Health. Worked with World Vision and other charities who are working at improving the lives of those who need it most! We have seen lives changed as children and adults receive hearing aids. Your support has made this all possible! With just 3 months to go before we return to the UK this final fundraising will see us through the last months and help to sponsor students who have outstanding tuition
