Myspace Properties Nairobi, a real estate agency, has entered into collaboration with doctors of hearing at IncusEar Hearing & ENT Centre to enhance the lives of the deaf. The diversification plan will see the company focus on handling social problems.
According to Mwenda Thuranira, CEO Myspace properties, the partnership is expected to help many who have been affected by the affliction. “Hearing when people talk is an underrated blessing. I am moved when people’s lives get better,” he said.
Mr Thuranira will be one of the people spearheading the partnership to ensure it is a success. The other head will be Richard Mwangi, an audiology guru at Doctors of Hearing Healthcare. Dr Mwangi, who holds a master’s degree in Clinical Audiology and Hearing Therapy from International University of Isabel I De Castilla Buros, Spain, has a vast experience of 15 years providing a full range of diagnostic audiological evaluations and treatment for the hearing impaired. Also, he is a correspondent in the American Journal of Otolaryngology, head and neck surgery.
Among the first people to benefit from the partnership has been Faith Ntinyari, a 48-year-old and mother of three, residing in Isiolo County. For some time, she had a hearing problem but she had mistaken it for a common condition such as Malaria. As a result, she struggled with the condition, which affected much of her daily operations.
Moving from one hospital to another, she had started losing hope of finding a solution until she was advised to seek assistance at an audiology consultancy in Nairobi. This was her path to learning about and meeting Mwenda Thuranira, through another beneficiary of this partnership. “I am very happy; I can now hear and improve my small business thanks to Myspace. God bless you so much,” said Faith Ntinyari.
