Hearing Solutions Partners with Purinapaq

For Immediate Release

Toronto, ON At Hearing Solutions we believe in hearing with a heart. So when patients have old hearing aids they would like to recycle or no longer need for whatever reason, we’re happy to take them. Through our partnership with an organization called Purinapaq, those generous donations provide the gift of hearing for those who can’t afford to buy them.

Donations can be made anytime at any one of our Hearing Solutions clinics across the Greater Toronto Area.

A little history behind our partnership with Purinapaq

 

For four years Jose Orozco used a wheelchair to get around following an accident where he seriously injured his back. Not giving up hope and listening to the optimistic words of his doctor, miraculously Jose learned to walk again.

Once Jose was walking again, a friend brought him a wheelchair. Jose was puzzled, saying he didn’t need a wheelchair anymore. His friend told him, “don’t worry, you will.”

That wheelchair began a journey that has seen Jose become the Founder and Executive Director of Purinapaq, an organization that provides wheelchairs to people in his native Peru who do not have the financial resources to afford one.

One day, while in Peru on an aid mission for Purinapaq, he was asked if he could get a pair of hearing aids for a little boy who had multiple disabilities, for whom a wheelchair only served part of his need. The child reminded Jose of his eight year old son back in Toronto, so he said he would. Jose didn’t know where he would get the hearing aids from, but once he landed back in Toronto his young son assured him they would succeed in finding them.

Jose and his son started making phone calls to businesses and organizations to see who might be able to donate hearing aids. One of those fateful calls was to a Hearing Solutions clinic. From that point on we are proud to say that Hearing Solutions has been providing used hearing aids to Purinapaq. The devices are then taken to Peru, where audiologists clean and refurbish the hearing aids.

At Hearing Solutions, hearing with a heart is about more than just providing great service. It’s also about caring for our community across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.
