More than Words Project

The project + QPalabras (More Than Words) promotes a new initiative spearheaded by a group of Guinean parents. The Guinean government does not provide any help for these parents to care for their deaf children.

+QS provided counsel and guidance for these parents to organize and form the Association of Parents of Deaf Children in Equatorial Guinea.

In 2012, we began evaluating a group of children from Bata. Audiometry studies were conducted and we determined how to best help each child. In 2013, hearing aids were given to several children and a team of ENTs (ears-nose-throat doctors) evaluated each child, and trained parents and teachers to care for each child.
