Israel and Palestine Hearing Mission

February 2012, Tel Aviv, Israel & Tulkarem, Palestine

NewSound staff participated in the second West Bank Mission of Peace in Israel and Palestine. Lead by Starkey Hearing Foundation, the team worked with individuals from both countries to bring about the gift of hearing for their citizens. This was a remarkable step in bringing two feuding groups together for a common cause. Overall, more than 800 people were fit with hearing aids in both cities. Special guest and renown musician Harry Connick, Jr. supported the mission by fitting hearing aids on several children himself.
