March 2015 Malaysia
We kicked off events with group trainings for our new partners and volunteers. These trainings are essential to ensuring sustainability and understanding, and help set our partners up for success. During the training we reviewed and practiced our methods hands-on. Once training was complete, we were ready to fit nearly 1,500 people.
While we were able to help many people in Malaysia, two little ones struck a special chord with the team — brother and sister, Muhammad and Ramabhanie. Neither of them had heard before, and their response to sound was instantaneous. The siblings began to interact with one another, testing out their vocal abilities with yells, giggles and “ba ba ba’s.” It was rewarding to see the instant impact of our work. Even better, we got it on film! Watch the adorable Muhammad and Ramabhanie in action at www.youtube.com/StarkeyHearingFndn.
