Final Report
Hearing Aids for Seniors in India
Thank you to those who have contributed to the Project - Hearing Aids for Seniors (India) back in December 2021. Our goal was to raise $2,000 to donate 150 Hearing Aids for factory workers over the age of 60 with severe hearing issues. Thanks to your generosity, we have met our goal.
The hearing aids were distributed on May 12, 2022. This project was jointly executed by Rotary Club of Thiruvaiyaru (State: Tamil Nadu) and Rotary Club of Karaikal (State: Pondicherry).
