Patrick is a Deaf 15 Year Old Who Never Had a Conversation Until Now…

Patrick Otema, 15 was born profoundly deaf. In the remote area of Uganda where he lives there are no schools for deaf children, and he has never had a conversation. Raymond Okkelo, a sign language teacher, hopes to change all this and offer Patrick a way out of the fearful silence he has known his whole life.

You can help children like Patrick too.  Here is a list of organizations that help deaf children speak.

Share the joy
