Ruth's experience working within Finance and Administration in the charity sector is invaluable to IHCC. She enjoys the opportunity to work with children and said “I enjoy working with IHCC because I have an opportunity to participate in creating positive change, bringing hope and putting a smile on the faces of children as they are being provided with the opportunities for better hearing.”
