Children with hearing difficulties in Western Kenya will benefit from a Sh2 million centre commissioned in Kisumu at the weekend.
The facility put up at the Joyland Special School by a Dutch organisation, Eardrop Foundation, will offer treatment to the hearing impaired children in the region.
Speaking during the official opening of the facility, Eardrop chairman Jan Antvelink said the flair fitted with an Insertion Gain Optimizer will assist in analysing hearing problems for correction.
"It will also help in fitting hearing aids to young children. The hearing system will enable persons using it to hear soft sounds that vary in frequencies," he said.
