Cochlear Implant Program
Cochlear implants are devices that are surgically implanted under the skin, in the skull bone, and help children with the inability to hear regain sound. The implants are very sophisticated and costly devices. While Palestine has done these surgeries before, most programs have slowed down and stopped given the lack of funding. Each Cochlear implant costs $10,000 inclusive of the device, surgery, pre and post-surgery testing, and post-surgical rehabilitation.
PAMA has made arrangements with the following parties to assure high quality service; the Red Crescent Hospital in Hebron and AlQuds Hospital in Gaza, Med-El cochlear implant provider in Austria, and hearing loss rehabilitation centers.
Unfortunately, without your help, most Palestinian children who need this service will end up not getting it. Every passing day without your help is another day these children's cognitive deficits will grow with them and eventually, this disability will become unavoidable.
*PAMA will do its best to use your donation toward the project of your choice, however, in certain cases, PAMA may use it where it's needed most
