CSCLF·SMIC (Mengning) Fund Cochlear Implant Program Donation Ceremony was held in Dali, Yunnan Province.
CSCLF·SMIC (Mengning) Fund donated RMB 1.5 million to People's Hospital of Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture for cochlear implant for 15 hearing-impaired people between the age of 7 and 50 in Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture and neighboring areas.
After the Ceremony, experts from Eye & ENT Hospital of Fudan University performed the operation for 5 patients.
Chang Heqiang, aged 29, is one of them. He was unable to work after being diagnosed of sensorineural deafness in 2014, leaving the financial burden of supporting the family to his wife. Chang's family expressed their gratitude to Mengning Fund. It is expected that after a month of recovery, he could get back to work and drag his family out of poverty.
CSCLF·SMIC (Mengning) Fund was established in September 2018 to promote public welfare in poverty alleviation, education, science and healthcare. The Fund currently supports programs in cochlear implant, liver transplant, the treatment of congenital heart disease and scholarship for university students with financial difficulties.
