Cherry Mobile Campaigns for Healthy Ears

January 9, 2017
By: Radelie H. Geavican

Cherry Hears Caravan brings Cherry Mobile’s advocacy to the communities to help them prevent hearing impairment.

The caravan creates awareness about the importance of early detection, early intervention and special programs available for children with special needs. This year, around 1,000 individuals from six (6) different communities in Manila (Ermita, Malate, Pandacan, Paco, Tondo and Quiapo) benefited from the services of the caravan. The project catered mostly the children. They were given free ear checkup and hearing test. Psychological and speech test were also made available when needed.  The advocacy component in the form of a short learning session on proper ear care and medical assistance to qualified beneficiaries made the intervention more meaningful.
                                                                                                                 Children from Paco as they concentrate on their hearing tests.
                                                                                    Alphabet awareness was part of the exercises done in psychological assessment (Tondo, Manila)
                                                                          These children were enjoying each others’ company while waiting for their turns to have their ears checked.

Cherry Mobile expresses its heartfelt gratitude to the unconditional support of our partners, namely Philippine Institute for the Deaf, KAISAKA Inc., Kanlungan sa ErMa, Gems Heart Foundation, ERDA Foundation, Onesimo Bulilit Foundation, Sun For All Children and several Barangay Council Offices of the city of Manila. Cherry Hears Caravan will continue to cater to different sub-sectors of the hearing-impaired people by widening its program reach with greater impact to communities.
