The Bohol Hearing Clinic is owned and operated by Hear Me Now Philippines, Inc., a non-stock, non-profit corporation duly registered with the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC). Being on the leading edge of technology and having well-trained staff, it is one of the finest Hearing Clinics in the Philippines.

It works in close partnership with International Deaf Education Association (IDEA) Philippines, Inc., an NGO (non-government organization) that is working to educate the impoverished and neglected deaf children in the Philippines.

Profits from the clinic help support the education of almost 500 deaf children in the islands of Bohol and Leyte as well as provide hearing services and hearing aids to these children when needed. The Clinic also employs one Deaf.

If you would like to be a part of the ongoing work here in Bohol with deaf students or consider sponsoring a child, visit IDEA’s website at ideadeaf.org for more information.
