GLOBALINK CONTRIBUTES HEARING AIDS Globalink has initiated a charity campaign to support children with hearing impairments at the Special Boarding School No. 1 for Deaf and Hearing- Impaired Children in Almaty, Kazakhstan. The cam - paign aims to promote the development of children by providing hearing aids to facilitate their learning skills and integration into society. Globalink provided hearing aids to children whose parents could not afford the devices. The hearing aids were procured by the Medical Center SATR, whose specialists carried out diagnos - tics, testing, and installation of individual in-the-ear devices for the children. The campaign was intended to "make the children's lives, deprived of sound, complete, and to allow them to believe in dreams and the primacy of goodness." Globalink representatives were invited by the school to meet the children with their new hearing devices. "We are extremely grateful for the concern and care shown by the Globalink contribution, which has improved the quality of lives of children in need," says the school's director, Alexandra Dnisheva.
