District 4-L4 has established a Hearing Aid Bank Program, which recycles used hearing aids and is now listed on the Lions Clubs International website as a HARP (Hearing Aid Recycling Program) participant, to assist the hard of hearing.In addition, the Affordable Hearing Aid Project (underwritten by LCIF) is for low-income people both in developing nations such as India and developed nations such as the United States. The hearing aid is one part of the solution to hearing impairment. Also needed are the services of hearing care professionals who conduct tests, make ear molds, program the hearing aids and do follow-up care. All LionsEar hearing aids will be distributed in cooperation with participating Lions and hearing care professionals. The hearing aids are ordered by districts hearing programs and are then shipped to hearing care professionals who have a relationship working with these Lions entities.

Sight and Hearing concerns are the primary programs that Lions International sponsors worldwide. “Communicate with your child” is non bias referral material describing all five modalities of hearing options... Listening and Spoken Language, Total Communication, Cued Speech and American Sign Language (ASL). What the Lions have discovered is a breakdown of these hearing awareness educational materials being distributed to appropriate the agencies, such as; hospitals, pediatricians, audiologists and public & private schools. So, the Lions are determined to remedy this problem and deliver this nationally accredited information to you....free of charge. "Communicate with your Child" was produced by the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management, Utah State University and funded by the Let Them Hear Foundation. These brochures come in six languages: English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Tagalog and Korean.
