#microtiawalk2018 Explained

Microtiawalk2018 is the special awareness programme organized by the Give an Ear Foundation with the social media tag “#microtiawalk2018”, in other words hashtag microtiawalk2018, born without ears. The walk takes place on Saturday 29th September 2018.

The walk starts from the Morningside Country Club, Morningside, Sandton. Over two hundred participants are expected to join this special awareness walk to draw more attention to the reality known as Microtia. Over 60 kids from South Africa alone are on the Give an Ear Foundation waiting list.

What is Microtia?

Microtia is a physical deformity mostly found in children from birth, where there is very little or no development of the outer ear (pinna). In microtia, the outer ear may appear as a bean shaped skin.

Microtia could be single (one side only) or doubled (both sides).

What is Atresia?

Atresia is the absence or blockage of the Ear Canal found in children at birth, which causes a very high degree of hearing loss, total hearing loss in most cases where microtia (no outer ear) is also present.

Atresia may affect one ear or both ears.

The condition of grade 3 level Microtia and Atresia in baby Victor (7 years old) at birth, and the relentless search by his mother Mrs. Viola Ntokazi Nwadike to find medical explanations, information and answers gave birth to Give an Ear Foundation.
