- A solar charger with 2 rechargeable hearing aid batteries
- Can fit any behind the ear (BTE) hearing aid and last 2 to 3 years
- Can be charged via sun, household light or using a Nokia cell phone charger
Many people lost their hearing aids in the earthquake and tsunami. Normal hearing aids require the batteries to be changed every week, a difficult situation in a location ravaged by natural disaster where the supply chain has been broken.
We can connect solar-charged hearing aids with hearing impaired survivors of the disaster. The hearing aids, rechargeable batteries and solar-powered chargers will be distributed to people who lost their hearing aids in the natural disaster.
We will reach people in Rikuzentakata City, in Japan's Iwate prefecture.
The products will be distributed by the Secretariat for the Support of the Hearing Impaired in the Earthquake Affected Area, with the generous support of Winroader, a logistics company.
Using its experience and networks, the Secretariat for the Support of the Hearing Impaired will distribute the Solar Ears to people most in need.
