Deaf Child Hope Child of the Week – Ana Lucia Lara Ochoa

Deaf children experience a poverty that hearing children do not experience…poverty of language. Rarely are Deaf children exposed to sign language from birth and even fewer are exposed to sign language in other countries, ever. Sponsoring a Deaf child attending a Deaf school with one of our partners in Vietnam or Honduras helps supply the basics of life, food, clothing, shelter and basic medical needs.

In addition, they also receive language learning, an education, and so much more! These Deaf children are endearing and amaze us, even more, as their worlds emerge with language. Our partners, New Beginnings School for the Deaf, Central Deaf Services (both in Vietnam) and Manos Felices (Honduras) all seek to love these children and those who care for them, unconditionally.

Your daily prayers for them…are life-changing, as well. Partnering with these Deaf Schools, in this endeavor, will ensure these blessings continue.
