Cochlear Implant

In India, 3 in 1000 babies born suffer from severe to profound hearing loss, i.e. born deaf. The incidence of hearing loss in Maharashtra is 6000 babies every year. The magnitude of the problem is grave. Modern biotechnology has provided a solution in the form of Cochlear Implants. However, this is an extremely expensive technology which cannot be afforded by the underprivileged children. Idea Cellular Ltd. and its subsidiary companies ITL, ICISL, ABTL support deaf-mute children through cochlear implant so that they can speak and hear and lead a normal life. It is a life changing experience for deaf and mute children. It has enabled children to move out of their world of silence to hear and talk again.
