Leightons HearingCare supports All Ears Cambodia, a charity
set-up in Phnom Penh by British Audiologist, Glyn Vaughan.
Leightons is doing what we can to help - by helping to send
out supplies of hearing aid batteries, second hand hearing aids,
and where possible new digital hearing aids.
All Ears Cambodia is a charity providing a unique medical
service in a country torn by years of war. During the
genocidal regime of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, over 90% of
doctors were executed, died or left the country. It's a sad
fact that there are now two million Khmers suffering from deafness,
largely due to exploded land mines, and half of them are
children. The damaged caused by this hearing loss can be
life-shattering. Manylive in abject poverty in rural
areas where chronic ear disease is so widespread it is regarded as
normal. All Ears Cambodia believes that over half of these
cases could have been prevented.
The All Ears Clinic in Phnom Penh is open every weekday and
provides healthcare and audiology services, which includes the
fitting of hearing aids for anyone in need of help. The team
reach international standards when treating ear disease, using
advanced examinations, and even special hearing tests for babies.
All Ears provides a complete range of hearing aids for all types of
All Ears also works in hospitals and special clinics and through
its Outreach programme. Through its Education Programme it
provides training for student clinicians and a range of educational
materials for the general public.Charitable donations of hearing
aids are greatly received and can really help to change a life.
Hearing is so fundamental, it connects us to the world, and
often take it for granted. We forget that hearing is the means
by which we develop speech and language needed to communicate our
thoughts and ideas. So by helping to support All Ears Cambodia with
hearing aids, digital hearing aids and hearing aid batteries,
Leightons hopes to make a small difference to some of the hardest
hit. If you would like to know more, please go to www.allearscambodia.org.
