Pro­tect­ing the eyes and ears of chil­dren

Vuk'uzenzele - - General - Dale Hes

AN NGO wants chil­dren from dis­ad­van­taged com­mu­ni­ties to re­ceive bet­ter hear­ing and eye­sight screen­ing.

HearX is seek­ing to be the eyes and ears of chil­dren through new tech­nolo­gies that iden­tify health prob­lems re­lated to hear­ing and sight. The HearX Group is a so­cial en­ter­prise which uses smart­phone hear­ing tests to pro­vide low-cost screen­ing to dis­ad­van­taged com­mu­ni­ties.

HearX en­sures that chil­dren re­ceive the nec­es­sary care if they have any vi­sion or ear­ing im­pair­ments.
