August 2014 Colombia

Excited to be back in Colombia, the team found themselves surrounded by culture and art. The patients even expressed their joy and gratitude with their inspiring creativity.

An entire dance team of young people struggling with hearing loss came to the hearing mission. Once our team had fit them all with hearing aids, they performed, many of them fully experiencing the music they dance to for the first time.

Yuli, a young woman Bill fit during our 2012 hearing mission, which was featured on an episode of “Operation Change,” returned to visit with the team and update us on her progress. Bill Austin also fit her with a new set of hearing aids. A budding painter, Yuli took the gift of hearing with her when she started art school in the fall.
