Elton John Hands Out Hearing Aids In The Philippines

Elton John handed out hearing aids to children and adults in the Philippines for a charity event last week.

John and his partner David Furnish joined the Starkey Hearing Foundation in Manila in order to help those who are unable to hear. So far the pair have helped fit 400 of the devices, which have allowed some individuals to hear for the very first time.

"We are working to create peace and understanding around the world through the gift of hearing," said Bill Austin, Founder of the Starkey Hearing Foundation.

"And it is not possible without all the efforts of our friends and partners. We are so honored to have the support of Sir Elton John and David Furnish and that they would take the time to help us deliver this precious gift."
