Mom and child

Hearing loss is the most common birth defect.

Every day in South Africa, 17 children are born Deaf.

The majority are born to hearing parents, who have no knowledge of hearing loss or Deaf culture.

Late identification – after six months – has serious consequences for the development of the child.
