Helping children who might otherwise live in a silent world

The Rotary Club of Ulaanbaatar Peace Avenue, Mongolia, has raised more than $10,000 to outfit two Mongolian hospitals with screening devices that test hearing in newborns. By detecting hearing loss early, specialists are able to fit infants with hearing aids or implants and get them into early intervention programs that allow them to communicate normally. The effort exemplifies how Rotary members are making a positive change in their communities and the world.
