Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick travel to southern Africa to give gift of hearing to kids and adults in need
(CBS 58) -- Over the weekend, Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick joined the Starkey Hearing Foundation in Lusaka, Zambia to fit over 100 children and adults with hearing aids and give the gift of hearing.
The hearing mission took place at the Starkey Hearing Institute, located in Lusaka, Zambia which opened in 2016 and has since graduated two classes of hearing instrument specialists. The third class of students, who are on campus currently, also took part in the mission with Aaron and Danica.
Disabling hearing loss affects more than 360 million people, including 32 million children worldwide, yet many do not have access to the hearing devices. Starkey Hearing Foundation gives the gift of hearing, improving the lives of individuals, their families, and communities around the world.
