Mission 2

The mission "validation"

Composed of three persons, it takes place in March 2002. It is aiming to control the effectiveness of the action of the first mission. How behaved the children? Did they wear their hearing aids? Indeed, in spite of a few losses, the result is overall positive, hearing aids are worn and well maintained in spite of the constraints due to the hot and wet climate. The new children to integrate one of the three schools are tested and will be fitted during the next mission.

Mission 1

The mission "test"

Initiated by Jean-Paul BERAHA, hearing aid specialist, and Michel BRE, ENT doctor, and composed of a team of 9 people, it takes place in July 2001. 76 children – from schools of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Battambang – selected by the teachers of Krousar Thmey according to their age and their aptitudes are fitted thanks to the manufacturing of temporary ear molds. In each of the schools a meeting with the director and the teachers makes it possible to explain the installation of the hearing aids, their operation and their maintenance.
