Society to Aid the Hearing Impaired

In November 2004 a group of ENT surgeons, audiologists and hospital management personnel joined hands with some concerned citizens to launch an organization called SAHI. It is an Indian NGO that strives to help poor children with hearing impairment. Since it was established, SAHI has been trying to address this problem by conducting camps in remote areas of the state. Children with learning disabilities or hearing loss are given hearing aids by SAHI and those with ear diseases are given free ear surgeries.

    Dr. Jaswinder Singh

    ENT Surgeon,

    ” I have been associated with SAHI since its inception and have seen it grow like a tree providing shade in the form of hearing, to numerous hearing impaired children, who would not have enjoyed the joy of hearing the world. SAHI, in its endeavors, has brought happiness to thousands of families.”

    Dr. Ram Babu

    Director of Medical Services,

    ” There are very few organizations working for the cause of deafness especially in children. SAHI is working towards bringing awareness through camps, print, social and broadcast media. SAHI was instrumental in getting the state government to include Cochlear Implant programme in its Rajiv Aarogyasri free health scheme.”

    ” My child, Venella is hearing impaired. Even the thought of getting a cochlear implant for our child without SAHI’s help was scary because we cannot afford it. Now after the surgery and rehabilitation assistance my child is able to hear and talk clearly and confidently. We are very thankful and will remain grateful. “
