In support of the efforts of the Nigerian government, MTN Foundation strives to positively impact and empower Nigerians with disability. This can be witnessed by the various projects the Foundation has executed.

The Hearing Aid Support Project is one of the many MTNF programs that provide appliances to disabled persons. This year, the Foundation has already distributed hearing assessment forms and is set to conduct audiometric assessment test for shortlisted potential beneficiaries.

The Foundation also recently took delivery of 1,500 top of the range hearing devices from Pure Tone Hearing devices. Pure Tone, UK’s leading supplier of hearing aid accessories has won numerous awards and has been recognised by the Queen of England.

The distribution of hearing aids will be conducted in April 2016 across the 6 states namely Katsina, Benue, Akwa Ibom, Bauchi and Anambra.

Below are pictures from the inspection.

    Can you imagine A WHOLE MTN giving just 1500 hearing aids. I hope it’s 1500 per state not as a collective. My issue with organisations/government that do things like this is what happens to the hundred and thousands of people who will not benefit from this . The way i see it they should have bought cheaper quality headphones not necessarily branded which increases the number of people that would get these hearing aids. At this stage the disabled are more concerned with actually getting help and long term aid eg Jobs, Health care packages,University funding etc than one act of charity or the brand of hearing aid. Its sad how 9ja government have let the people down though. God bless MTN for trying(though its part of their social duties) and God be with us all. Good people Good Nigeria

    What are the requirements that make one eligible to to get one of these aids besides the obvious. I know someone from Akwaibom in dire need of hearing aids.
