It’s amazing what we found in the ears on a recent humanitarian trip to Turks and Caicos.
Three kids had broken Q-tips in their ears – one had even gone to the hospital in pain weeks ago but was only given ear drops.
We extracted items including seashells, beads, and even insects.
In one day we excised excessive wax from 27 children.
The good news: when the wax and objects were taken out, their hearing became normal without the need for aids.
