Afghan children helped to hear for first time

The hearing impaired have lived in a world of their own, but a new initiative gives them chance to rejoin society.

    A new initiative in Afghanistan will help hundreds of young people to hear for the first time in their lives. 

    Aid agencies from Afghanistan and the US have come together to sponsor the programme.
