Communication Break-Down


If you can’t hear… you can’t learn to speak
If you can’t speak… you can’t COMMUNICATE in a hearing world
If you can’t communicate… you’re socially and economically deprived

Usually this leads to:

1) Low sense of self-worth, insecurity
2) Lack of education, timidity
3) Stigmatization in many societies
4) Social isolation, under employment

Providing Hearing Aids to Syrian Refugees

Refugees are in need of hearing aids. The number of hearing injuries caused by the Syrian War has only increased – and the issue has now reached our very doorstep here in Jordan.


A limitation in the developing world
is making ear molds by hand.

The traditional plaster method to produce the ear molds for hearing aids, is a “piece of artwork” and very time-consuming. A technician can create
 3 or 4 ear molds at one time, but the process can take up to an entire day to complete.


3DP4ME, in collaboration with our partners, has created a new innovative service delivery model.
