In a heartbreaking moment caught on camera, a young boy is seen breaking down in tears as his hearing aid gets fixed and he is able to hear once again after months of being deaf.
9-year-old Luiz Gustavo da Silva was left at uncertainty for months after his surgical hearing implant broke down earlier this year.
With limited funds at their disposal, the parents were forced to watch their son struggling to get around as they couldn’t afford the $2,000 repair bill.
Fortunately for little Silva, his plea for help invoked compassion in his local community of Bueno Brandão, Brazil, with people standing together to hold a charity raffle for the boy’s purpose.
“Once people heard about Luiz Gustavo’s difficulties, many residents who had never met him, got behind the campaign. We printed 1,000 tickets and sold each one for $2.50,” Caleny Augusta de Rosa, Silva’s teacher and the organizer of the raffle, shared.
“Within 15 days we had raised more than enough to fix the device.”
And fixed it was. While the device didn’t appear to work in the first try, the 9-year-old could be heard screaming in happiness after the hearing aid was adjusted and it began to work.
“The response was amazing. We were shocked by how many people supported our son and gave so generously,” 29-year-old Athais, the mother of Luiz, said.
“I adjusted it and the instant Luiz Gustavo heard my voice was priceless,” the boy’s father added.
“It still brings tears to my eyes when I look back on how he jumped with surprising joy and gave the thumbs up. That moment reminds me of just how isolated he is when he cannot hear.”
