ISF is a Registered 501 (c) (3) United States Charitable Organization founded in 1978 with its origins dating back to Canada from 1967 where Mr.(Dr.) Herb James first formed the International Sound Foundation.
Mr.(Dr.) James was born with an ear impairment that led him on a journey from the shores of his childhood home in the Pacific Northwest to Stockholm, Sweden where as a teenager he received a life-changing procedure, to hear properly for the first time.
This was the beginning, the idea of FREE HEARING HEALTH SERVICES for children, teenagers and young adults in developing countries. No one should suffer silence, no matter what their privilege may or may not be.
BCS Children's Hospital
We are moving towards helping to create a facility for physicians to perform medical procedures and for patients to recover and discover their new life. The Southern Baja BCS is a great place to heal, learn and experience a blend of modern and ancient healing and is the only State in Mexico without a Childrens Hospital.
ISF Concert Series: Coming Soon
Part of our fundraising will be an Outdoor Concert Series sponsored thus far by Chemust.com, Spectrum Catalyst, Global Humic Products, Kel-Tech Solutions and CASCO. Look for our first show in spectacular Tecalote Beach La Paz, BCS, Mexico
