One-tenth of the population suffer from hearing disability that harms their daily functioning according to Bekol, the Israel Hearing Disabled Organization that will mark National Hearing Day on Tuesday. One in six people aged 40 to 65 is hearing disabled, while the condition affects a third of people over 65. According to Bekol, while the average hearing aid costs NIS 7,000, they are subsidized by the government by only NIS 795. The Hadassah College will for the fifth year in a row offer free hearing tests on its Jerusalem Campus and to MKs in the Knesset.
