Giving children the ability to hear

Around 40,000 children are born in Armenia each year. Out of those, roughly 40 are born deaf. Thanks to a device called the cochlear implant, a simple surgery allows children to hear again. In Armenia, there is only one hospital where the cochlear implant surgery is performed, it’s in the Erebuni Medical Center. Dr. Shukuryan and his staff have been operating and giving children the ability to hear for years. They have helped around 160 children since 2004 with the crucial help of the Armenian International Medical Fund.
