Pets on Parade is an online pet show which the Rotary Club of Torquay is running to raise funds to assist with "Hearing Screening for Primary School Year 1 and 2 Children in Tonga.
As there is currently no routine screening or monitoring of hearing or ear health of young children in Tonga, the objective of this project is to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Health through focused training and provision of specialist equipment, to enable them to undertake screening the hearing of the young population in Tonga on a regular basis. Within a sample of 500 Primary 1 and 2 children, 30% have been found to have some hearing/ear problems. Community Nursing staff, supported by staff at the ENT clinic will conduct regular periodic screening of the hearing of young children within the school environment. Children with identified problems will be directed to representatives from the ENT clinic at Vaiola Hospital Nuku'alofa, for further evaluation and remediation.
Enter Pets on Parade 2022 and donate to assist with Hearing Screening for Primary School Year 1 and 2 Children in Tonga.
