From 2016 to 2019, the team from Bay Audiology visited Samoa for our Free to Ear Programme. Due to Samoa having limited access to hearing health care, we developed this initiative to help the community in Apia rediscover the joy of hearing.
With the help of local organisations, our team has been able to provide free hearing checks, ear wax removals and fit donated hearing aids during their visits.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, our team were unable to visit in 2020 and 2021. However, we hope to return in the near future and continue to help the Apia community with their hearing. Donated hearing aids will be used towards our next Free to Ear Programme.
