You're on mute!

For a year we’ve been living differently,
Spending hours on video calls, each with their own problems.
Like when someone tries to speak, and they're on mute.
Everyone shouting "You're on mute!" … frustrating isn't it?

But imagine being a deaf child in a developing country. Where no one knows sign language, or even thinks you can communicate. Imagine your whole community on mute. Unlike you, deaf children can’t just click on a button to make communication happen.

So this Deaf Awareness Week,
Please donate today to DeafKidz International
So we can work to remove communication barriers
Make things safer for deaf children
Without fear of stigma, discrimination and abuse
And empower deaf children to succeed.
