A Gift of Friendship

 ( to foster people-to-people relations between Oregon and China )

This Hearing aid was donated by Elizabeth Hill of Warrenton, Oregon 


On November 1, 2003 our group went, on behalf of Elizabeth Hill, to donate Hearing Aid to a disabled child in FuNing,China.

The disabled child was selected, often from remote villages, as the candidate to receive the hearing aid donation.

Then, the child was sent to a local Audiologist to examine and test the hearing loss, so as to obtain an Audiogram.

With the Audiogram as prescription, a suitable Hearing Aid was presented in person to the disabled child.

Song ZhiPing, with the hearing aid, will receive instruction from a professional Speech Pathologist and learn how to talk.

Eventually she will graduate from the disabled children school and join a regular public school.

Elizabeth Hill has changed the future of Song ZhiPing and the fate of her whole life.
