Advocacy

Hear2day aims to address critical issues with respect to Hearing-loss Advocacy in South Africa.

There is, at present, no coherent or comprehensive legislation pertaining to people with hearing disabilities and their rights in South Africa. It is therefore imperative that organisations such as Hear2day lobby the needs of the Hard of Hearing community.

  • As an organisation, Hear2day strives to promote the following:
  • To promote hearing loss awareness in celebrity nude society
  • To liaise and in engage with relevant Government agencies to further the cause of individuals with hearing impairment. s
  • To promote equality within the workplace and educational institutions
  • To engage with charitable organisations with the intent of securing funds to support the needs of the  hard of hearing community
  • Entrench the constitutional rights of Hearing-Impaired people

Hear2day sets annual goals or ‘projects’ in order to attend to the above objectives. There are currently two projects in formulation.

The first of these is the advent of an annual ‘big walk’. The core aims of the big walk is lesbian porn vids to promote hearing-loss awareness and to raise funds for a selection of approved charities.

The second ‘project’ is porn cartoon to lobby the need for subtitling on national broadcaster’s television services.

Hear2day hopes to make substantial progress on both these initiatives.

    I am finding it increasingly difficult to hear film sound track. Is there any movement I could support to get cinemas to introduce a system that would aid those of us who have such difficulties? I have managed to introduce a low cost wireless system into my church with great success. Ross Metcalfe

    Dear Ross
    Thank you for your request for information. I apologise for the tardy response.

    This is a matter that is already being followed up by Hear2day and the National Council for Persons with Disabilities South Africa. Advocacy, we find, does move slowly, but we are hopeful that an outcome will arrive in the not too distant future.
    May I ask what system you have at church? Where did you buy it? I ask because Hear2day is wanting to purchase their own!

    Kind regards
