Our Mission Series
Our missions focus on providing disaster-recovery aid and self-defense training for the global Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing community.
In many parts of the world, the Deaf/HH are inadvertently deprived of language, communication, education and humanitarian relief efforts due to the inherent obstacles to communicate. During a natural disaster, when a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) brings relief efforts such as food, water and shelter –unless directed to go specifically to the Deaf, the supplies will immediately go to those who can hear as notifications are transmitted by word-of-mouth. Without electricity, the Deaf can no longer communicate after sundown simply because there is no light. Due to a lack of communication access, a person with a hearing-loss is 150% more likely to be a victim of sexual assault (source #whowillanswer).
