Working as an Audiological physician over the last 26 years, I have seen people, especially children suffer from hearing loss and its terrible effects on their lives. While I have always made an effort to lessen the pain, we need the support of masses to reach out to more deserving children and families to make a big difference in their lives.
I initiated SADA (Society for Audiological and Development Ailments) as the voice and sound for the children with hearing impairment. SADA is a non profit, Non government, and a non political organization formed in 2013. SADA was registered in 2014 as an NGO with the Dept. of Social Welfare Government of the Punjab.
In Pakistan, we have a staggering number of 1.5 million children who are hearing impaired. Many other people having the love and pain for humanity stood by me and helped me in this cause and today by the grace of Allah Almighty we are serving hundreds of children every year but we want to reach out to thousands more as the need is great!
