What is Co-Funding?

Co-funding with the ALMT allows individuals, other Trusts and Foundations, and Companies to contribute funds directly to individual, vetted and approved, project partnerships. With fifteen years of experience awarding grants and working in partnership with children’s organisations around the world, the ALMT is best placed to support you in your philanthropy.

Following on from a successful project in 2018, The ALMT is pleased to support this project for a further 3 years. All Ears Cambodia 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 disadvantaged children in Cambodia. Clinics will be used for the purpose of providing audiology and primary ear health care services.

 

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. The project will achieve approximately 1,900 paediatric consultations per year, diagnosis and treatment of outer and middle ear disease in approximately 60-70% of cases per year, approximate 15-20% of caseload receiving auditory rehabilitation per year and a minimum 2,000 children provided with ear and hearing health education per year.
