We are currently working with 42 refugees, this includes the Deaf refugees and their associated family members. The Deaf members arrive in this country with no education and no language. We teach them American Sign Language, English, basic life skills, etc. We also teach social skills and Deaf culture. On top of teaching them, we supply them with daily toiletries, furnitures, clothes, and many more. We also take them to doctor and dentist appointments. Subscribe to our e-newsletter to keep updated about this project. Also, please contact us if you know Deaf refugees who are in need of support.
