Provide a hearing aid for a disabled person, INR 2800


Turnstone is an organization that has started working for people with speech and hearing impairment, with an aim to serve people with disabilities other than visual impairment.

How It Works

• Among the beneficiaries suffering from hearing impairment, a number of beneficiaries were identified whose hearing could be improved with the help of an assistive device – a "Hearing Aid" - in this case.
• After much debate, the members of Turnstone decided to offer assistance to such persons by providing "Hearing Aids".
• An individual is provided with a hearing aid once only.
• Every year, instruments are distributed to different people.


• 200 – Number of hearing impaired people in the waiting list who can be helped through donations.

The confidence of Mr.Abu Taher
Old age and insufficient nutrition gradually drove Mr.Abu Taher becoming hearing impaired. His family was facing trouble communicating with him. Thus there was a growing intolerance towards him within the family.
On being identified to be short of hearing, which can be improved by providing assistive device, Mr.Abu Taher was provided with a hearing aid.
Today, the communication gap between Mr. Abu and his family has waned off. He has once again started moving with his elderly friends.
