Hearing Impaired Children Viet Nam

$5,300 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 42 months



Paddy's Jewel is a small, privately funded, school for Deaf & Hard of Hearing Children in Hoi An, Viet Nam. This school is funded by Mai McCann through her salary as a Nurse in Australia.
I urgently need to raise funds for equipment in our classrooms as can be seen in the video above (Please watch the full 6 minute video clip to see the benefits for anyone who is Hard of Hearing). Without this FM Hearing System our children are struggling to learn how to speak - which makes it difficult for them to escape a life of poverty.
If we can rasie this money in 1 month it means we can install the system immediately & our students will rapidly progress to speaking. 
For 8 years I have lived in this community & have seen for myself how few are the opportunities for these children. To us, $15,000.00 is an insurmountable amount of money to raise. But, with the generosity of friends & strangers alike this target is so reachable.

Belated Update: Although we weren't able to reach our goal we were so very fortunate that Camberwell Rotary very generously stepped in & made a generous donation to our school for the purpose of buying this equipment. Together with our donors we now have funds to purchase the equipment. We have 1 classroom already using the system & showing amazing results. After just 3 weeks of use 2 of the students in this classroom no longer need to use sign language - they can hear the teacher so well! Absolutely amazing. To everyone who has donated, both here, & privately, please accept our very grateful Thanks. Words simply cannot express the change you have helped to make in these young lives. Namaste. Mai & The Jewels
