Miracle-Ear and the Miracle-Ear Foundation announced it will provide free hearing tests, along with complimentary hearing aids and a lifetime of follow-up services for eligible Ukrainian refugees arriving in the US.
Ukrainian refugees will be able to go to any of the 1,500 Miracle-Ear stores located in all 50 states to receive a free hearing screening and apply for the Gift of Sound hearing aid program. Then, a Miracle-Ear Hearing Care Specialist will work with them to be fitted for their new hearing aids, as well as a lifetime of free follow-up care.
“Many of the Ukranian refugees may have lost their own hearing devices or experienced sudden hearing loss during the war and the Miracle-Ear Foundation, along with our Miracle-Ear stores, are here to provide the Gift of Sound,” said Jenni Hargraves, vice president of the Miracle-Ear Foundation. “The Miracle-Ear Foundation is committed to helping all individuals, regardless of their ability to pay, to live and hear more fully.”
Since its founding in 1990, the Miracle-Ear Foundation has reportedly donated more than 34,000 hearing aids to more than 18,000 children and adults around the country who could otherwise not afford them. Amplifon, Miracle-Ear’s parent company, also donated $1 million euros (USD $1.09 million) to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to support Ukranian refugees.
