We Supported Muhammed Whose Hearing Aid Was Broken

We Supported Muhammed Whose Hearing Aid Was Broken

Muhammed, who is 13 years old now, is living a birth based hearing problem. He is using cochlear implant since doctors noticed his situation when he was 2 years old, but his hearing aid was broken when he was beaten by some children from school for deaf people. Muhammed left his school and lives some loose on his speaking because his family couldn’t make his hearing aid fixed because of the high cost. We got his hearing aid because SGK(Public Insurance) didn’t afford it. Now, Muhammed is going to another school for deaf people and he is saying how happy he is.

He Started To Hear Again After 8 Months
Muhammed, who came to Turkey from Syria with his family 3 years ago, had beaten by some children from school. His hearing aid which is so sensetive was broken after that. We had contact with a firm to get broken piece of aid because it isn’t produced in Turkey and SGK doesn’t pay it. With GIZ’s financial support, the broken piece was put back to his ear  and Muhammed started to hear again after 8 months. Meanwhile there were some lost on his speaking and he was away from his school and his friends. Now Muhammed is going to a new school with his father and studying so much to catch up his friends.
