Canadians join hearing mission to Honduras

Two Canadian audiologists from Collingwood and Wasaga Hearing Clinics will be using their knowledge and expertise to deliver the gift of hearing to more than 5,600 children and adults in Honduras this spring.

Sue and Sheri Vermeulen will be travelling with the Starkey Hearing Foundation for seven days to fit recipients with their own custom-made, hearing devices. Collingwood and Wasaga Hearing Clinic Inc. has been a family owned and operated business for over 35 years.

"We are so excited to be joining Starkey Hearing Foundation on this mission," said Sue Vermeulen. "The Foundation is bringing understanding to people around the world through hearing care. We here at Collingwood and Wasaga Hearing Clinics are honored to do our part in delivering the gift of hearing to those in need."

Starkey Hearing Foundation's Honduras mission is one of the many missions that are conducted throughout the year to help those with hearing loss around the world. As a member of President Clinton's Global Initiative, Starkey Hearing Foundation has pledged to fit one million hearing aids by the end of the decade.
