As we mark the end of International Week of Deaf People 2022, we are thrilled to announce model, actress and influencer Tasha Ghouri, known most recently for being the first deaf contestant in ITV’s Love Island, has joined the DeafKidz International team of Global Ambassadors.
We are so grateful for Tasha’s ongoing support of our work – she has long supported DeafKidz and we are delighted to have her on board as an Ambassador.
Tasha explains why she’s joining as a Global Ambassador and supporting our work:
“Before entering the villa I had raised money for DeafKidz because of who they are as an organisation, they are a small team but the work, ethic and values is amazing and the reason why I want to continue working with DeafKidz is because they continuously work to protect children in low-middle income countries from domestic abuse. Deaf children are three times more likely to be abused than hearing children so they are at more risk. DeafKidz prevent the abuse of deaf children, young people and vulnerable adults – with the donations they ensure that they have equal access to education and health opportunities. I’m so proud to be joining this organisation.
Everyday I think how damn lucky I am to even receive a cochlear implant whilst there’s children / young adults that can’t even access this. I’m joining forces with DeafKidz to continue to make a difference, by doing everything I possibly can to help raise awareness and funds for the organisation so that we can work towards a world where all children and young adults with superpowers are able to access audiologists and treatment just as I was”.
We can’t wait to continue working with Tasha – watch this space for news!
