Check with your state.  Would your patient qualify for any type of Medicaid
assistance?  In Iowa, the Lions club has a hearing aid bank that they use to 
provide donated hearing aids to needy persons.  Typically we refer older
patients to the Lions program.  However, local Lions clubs, or other clubs
such as Rotary or Sertoma may be willing to take on this project for you and
help raise money for this child.

A very worthy cause for old hearing aids (working or not working) in your office
is a program called Oye Amigos that provides hearing aids/testing/fitting
services for persons with hearing impairment in Mexico.  Aids can be sent to:

Oye Amigos Hearing Aid Project
8008 Davis Mtn. Cove
Austin, TX  78726
