The ability of children to read, learn and comprehend is affected on the account of non availability of a hearing aid. This adversely affects their education and future opportunities. For senior citizens, the ability to hear is also affected with age. Realizing its severity, Supriya Sule initiated the program of ‘Hearing Impairment Screening and Prevention’, where several camps are set up across Maharashtra to identify the needy, pre-examine their case and distribute hearing aids or recommend other treatment.
Under the Hearing Rehabilitation Program, by the year 2022, total 20000 plus free digital hearing aides are distributed to the needy across Maharashtra.
