Over a period of several years we have been encouraging and supporting our friends from the organization TOGETHER – Educational Center for Deaf, Blind and Non-disabled Children Hamhung e.V. They are committed to helping blind and deaf people. Thanks to your donations, we were able to facilitate the printing of the very first sign language booklet for parents and their deaf children. In addition, various courses for young adults were held. The village shop is selling some of the creative and practical everyday items that were created in one of the felting courses.
Early educational support is very dear to our hearts and we are supporting this organization in their endeavor to set up a kindergarten for deaf children. One of the main initiators of TOGETHER is Robert. The Bavarian TV station (Bayrischer Rundfunk) featured Robert and his involvement in North Korea in their weekly show „Sehen statt Hören” (Seeing Instead of Hearing). We are thrilled! The film is not available online, but Robert has given us permission to print the interview in the previous edition of our blog on North Korea.
