One in six New Zealanders lives with hearing loss of some description and deafness is one of the most common disabilities in new-born children. Funding research aimed at not only preventing hearing loss but transforming the way it is treated, is the aim of the HRF.

As a not-for-profit charity, we receive no funding from Government and appreciate all donations, no matter how big or small or where they come from.
