2017/20/25 Jacques Venter 3 years old has had hearing and speach problems from birth. In regard to the consistent ear infections he has had two grommet operations, he had to have his tonguesels and adenoids removed. He now wears two hearing aids. After our visit to the hearing institute in Pretoria we were told that Jacques is completely deaf in the left ear. He might still be a canidate for the cochlear implant as the nerve is stil working. The cost of the operation is R380 000. All donations will be much appreciated.
