official partners

Word Flight for Hearing is proud and honored by the large number of well-reputed commercial and non-profit organizations that has chosen to work with us. Without these partners it would not have been possible to complete a project of this magnitude. Presented below is some of the 27 non-profit organizations that officially support WFH. WFH also has a close partnership with leading hearing instrumet vendor GN ReSound and other commercial companies. More details about our sponsors can be found here.

The Swedish Association of Hard of Hearing People (HRF) is a national popular movement with no political or religious ties. Today the association has all of 35 000 members, organised into 210 local clubs in 22 districts.

The HRF vision is for a society where impaired hearing is not a hinder, but a natural part of a diverse community; a society without discrimination, one where all of Sweden’s one million hard of hearing people can participate in studies, work and cultural activities, and where good aids are a right, not a question of income.

HRF represented by Jan-Peter Strömgren supports WFH.

IFHOH is registered as a charitable organization at Vereinsregister Amtsgericht Hamburg, Germany (Nr. 69 VR 10 527) and is also an International Non-Governmental Organization having special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
