Statement of purpose

This Web page's goal used to be to contain the addresses of organizations, which work with, and help the hearing impaired (Deaf, deaf and hard-of-hearing) in every country and geographical region of the world. The audience of this page consisted of:

  1. Parents who have been informed that their baby suffers from hearing impairment and do not know whom to contact for information and help.
  2. Adult persons who lost their hearing and do not know whom to contact about their problems.
  3. Travellers to other countries, who want to contact the local organizations where they visit.

However, nowadays every serious organization has its own Web site. Most of the Web sites can now be located by search engines such as Google. Therefore, the original contents of this page were withdrawn.

Nevertheless, some countries have portals, which list all (or most of) the organizations operating in that country. Whenever known, the URLs of those portals are retained in this Web page.
