Why we’re hear
Over 360 million people live with a disabling hearing loss yet just 11% have access to the care they need. In some regions of the world, the chance of seeing an audiologist is less than 1 in 5 million, making it statistically more likely to be struck by lighting than to see a hearing specialist. This needs to change.
Access to hearing care isn’t just about access to sound, it’s the bridge to a world of communication, education and employment – something we believe everyone deserves to receive.
Musicians 4 Hearing aims to connect those who love sound, with those who need it. Our musical events and activities work to fund hearing care for the world’s poorest, while simultaneously raising the discussion of hearing awareness in the music community, supporting both to hear music for life.
If music is the universal language – we think access to it should be universal too.
