Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his girlfriend, Danica Patrick , spent time in southern Africa for an experience they will never forget. 

The couple traveled abroad to fit children and adults with hearing aids in Lusaka, Zambia with the Starkey Hearing Foundation.

Rodgers and Patrick fit over 100 people with aids alongside Starkey Hearing Foundation co-founder Tani Austin and executive director Alfred Mwamba. 

Disabling hearing loss affects more than 360 million people, including 32 million children worldwide, yet many do not have access to the hearing devices.

The hearing institute opened in 2016 and has since graduated two classes of hearing instrument specialists. The current class of students also took part in the mission with Rodgers and Patrick.
