Hearing connects us to increased literacy, education spoken language, people and careers.
Some reports estimate that there are nearly 30,000 people who are deaf/HOH in Jamaica. However, there is currently only ONE Audiologist in the entire country. Poverty combined with hearing loss can have devastating effects on one's life.
It is our mission and vision to expand the awareness, access & outreach efforts we have developed over the past decade in the USA, combined with our seven years of service to the deaf in Jamaica, to create hearing loss awareness, start a hearing screening and early intervention program as well as increase the interest in audiology and speech & language professions in Jamaica.
We cannot do it without your support! Help us launch PHASE ONE in 2022 along with our Jamaica born and raised board member & intelligent audiologist, Charlene Cohen-DeRoy. We need to pay for a demography report and then plan a series of meetings with government and high ranking officials in the country of Jamaica to plan our future support of this lovely nation and its people.
Songs for Sound is a 501c3 charity founded on a heartwarming story & a passionate objective: to provide AWARENESS OF hearing loss solutions, ACCESS TO hearing loss testing and devices and encourage ACTION for those suffering from hearing loss and deafness. Songs for Sound aims to provide everyone with an opportunity to live a mainstream life full of sound and language, and of course, MUSIC.
Let love be our greatest aim. 1 Corinthians 14:1
