Break the Silence

2015-08-04 21:15

Hi Readers of News24,

I started a campaign for the deaf/hard of hearing community that?#?HearingAidsRock? and that we should be proud of showing it on social media. 

Reason being is that most of deaf/hard of hearing feel alienate when being in the hearing environment and I am talking from experience where at one stage I was embarrassed to use the hearing aids because I use to see people facial expressions and there was a lady who once asked me if I am retarded and all the laugh from people when I could not pronounce a word which I had a nervous breakdown.

And this is why this is my passion to create this campaign to raise funds from people throughout SA to give resources for deaf people such as hearing aids, speech therapy and other resources.

WEAR IT LOUD with your HearingAids. Let's show awareness of what it does and help us to live life better and easier for people just like us. 

Hashtag ?#?HearingAidsRock? #?WearItLoud? ?#?deaf? ?#?BreakTheSilence? #DearAwareness to show your support and alert throughout SA to know about this campaign and please those who are deaf/hard of hearing please post pic of you showing your hearing aids sideway with the hashtag  ?#?HearingAidsRock? #?WearItLoud? ?

My page name is "Break The Silence - Hearing Aids Rock (still busy with it)

please contact me on email

Thank you,
