The expression of thanks by Miss Carolina Raková for the endowment’s contribution

Greetings,

Your Foundation gave me a sum of money that helped and made possible the purchase of WIDEX hearing aids. I originally wanted to get in-the-ear hearing aids, however, after consultation with my doctor we opted for external hearing aids. I got used to them very quickly, and am most satisfied both with the size of the hearing aids and my perception of sound. Since it is also thanks to you that I have the good fortune to own these, I think it is most appropriate to thank you. I thank you truly from the heart for the financial contribution which enabled me to buy the hearing aids. It is truly amazing how much joy and ease you can bring to one human life. Please accept my thanks one more time.

With best regards
