District 5030 Grant Money at Work

A cadre of University of Washington doctoral audiology students spent 10 days this August in Guatemala working with audio techs from Quetazltenango, San Marcos, Huehuetenango, Retalhuleu, Morales and San Benito.  The group provided education workshops and hands on testing to children who would otherwise not be able to afford or have access to these services.  In all 450 children received hearing screening, 150 were identified as needing surgery, 75 children with hearing aids were checked out, and 55 children were fit with new hearing aids.   Thanks to a Rotary District 5030 matching grant, our Rotary Club was able to fund medical equipment that made this trip possible.
