Los Cabos Children’s Charity Amigos De Los Niños Recaps May Audiology, Hearing Aid and ENT Clinic
Amigos De Los Niños promotes and sponsors several clinics annually, one of the most important clinics is the ENT, Audiology Clinic, which ran from May 6-7, 2014.
“One of the major problems we see every day is parents with children who are sick, not knowing what to do or where to turn,” states Gay Thatcher, executive Director of Amigos de Los Niños.
“One of our main goals is creating awareness of what to look for in symptoms that are shown in children, so that parents can react quickly and seek help for their children as soon as possible,” continues Thatcher. “A large challenge parents face is that they are obviously afraid, but they do not have any clue on where to turn for help.”
Amigos de Los Niños works tirelessly to provide support to families in need, help children reach medical facilities for life-saving treatments, as well as plan and sponsor several clinics in the local community. From May 6-7 of 2014, the Audiology Clinic, Hearing Aid and ENT Clinic was a complete success. This particular clinic is one that ADLN helps plan annually. The ENT clinic is a popular clinic for Los Cabos locals to volunteer for, as watching mothers and fathers and most importantly, children hear for the first time is a special moment to say the least.
The clinic is always scheduled for two days, so that the U.S.-based doctors who have volunteered their time for over 10 years can visit patients. During the preliminary visits, children can be checked, fitted for hearing aids, and if needed, scheduled for surgery with local ENT’s to remove tonsils and adenoids, should this be needed. The May 2014 clinic resulted in 20 patients being seen and half of these patients already had hearing aids donated by ADLN. Batteries were replaced and the units were adjusted. The audiologists conducted 5 audio tests and 5 molds were taken as well.
Amigos De los Niño’s would like to thank Kathy Anderson an ADLN board member who found and donated 37 hearing aids! Also Dr. Michael Rensink and Audiologist James O’Hara for their participation and continued support of ADLN.
Amigos De Los Niños is committed to helping providing children and families in dire need with support and the means to seek medical attention. ADLN strives to constantly improve the process in which children are assisted and the board works diligently on new fund raising ideas to maintain the operations of this charity. Since its creation in Los Cabos in 1992, ADLN has helped hundreds of families and children and is one of the most well known charities in the region.
