Have ​ya heard? One in six people in New Zealand has a hearing loss.

When someone lives in a world of silence, they live with the hope that somehow they will be given the key to unlock the door to a hearing world.
The Pindrop Foundation was established in 2006 to keep that hope alive through supporting access to Cochlear Implant information and services.
Our values are commitment and passion for bringing the gift of sound to those with hearing loss.
Few people are aware of this growing public health issue in New Zealand, its social and economic impact and availability of hearing loss solutions.
By supporting the Pindrop Foundation you will be giving the gift of hope to those New Zealanders living in silence that they too will be able to share in the joy of sound.
Furthermore, you will be helping to spread the word to New Zealand kids about protecting their hearing through Pindrop’s Listen Up! Program.
