All Ears Cambodia - Cambodia - 2018
The Auris Minor Project
All Ears Cambodia was created not merely ot provide medical help but because it is a basic human right for all children and adults to live in health, peace and dignity.
This project will provide free specialist ear and hearing services for high-at-risk, disadvantaged children at the AEC clinic in Phnom Penh.
Cases will be derived from current partner organisations or from public hospitals, new partner organisations or walk-in cases. All cases are high-at-risk of ear disease and resulting deafness. They will include Down's syndrome, cleft palate and lip and other cranio-facial disorders, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, traumatic brain injury, polio and paraplegia as well children with HIV/AIDS. They will represent some of the most vulnerable and disadvantage children in Cambodia. Clinics will be used for the purpose of providing audiology and primary ear health care services. 2100 cases are expected to be seen in one year.
The project will also improve in-house and partner capacity building as well as awareness within the families of the target groups and the broader community on issues relating to ear disease and hearing impairment through an education program. Cases will be derived from any of our current partner organisations or from referrals from public hospitals and new partner NGOs particularly ones focusing on children with disabilities. Cases will include Down's syndrome, cleft palate and lip and other cranio-facial disorders, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, children with HIV/AIDS, traumatic brain injury and paraplegia. Clinics will be used for providing free audiology and primary ear health care services for these children.
