August 2013 Rwanda

During a ten-day Africa trip with the Clinton Foundation, former President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton joined the mission team to fit more than 250 patients in Kigali, Rwanda. They volunteered for the mission to see the progress the Foundation is making on its Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action of providing 1 million hearing aids to people in need this decade. Currently, we are nearly 40 percent ahead of schedule, fitting more than 165,000 hearing aids worldwide in the last year alone.

“Starkey Hearing Foundation is empowering people around the world to achieve a better life through the gift of hearing,” said President Clinton. “Chelsea and I were honored, as we always are, to help the great Starkey staff fit people, many of whom had never heard before, for hearing aids.”
