A deaf refugee from Bhutan impresses in Canada with her enthusiasm | Bhutan News Service

Here's an encouraging little story of a deaf Bhutanese refugee who is overcoming tremendous obstacles.

A deaf refugee from Bhutan impresses in Canada with her enthusiasm | Bhutan News Service: "“I believe deaf refugees can do anything hearing people do, except hear,” she says through a sign language interpreter in her Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada classroom at St. Joseph’s Adult School in Ottawa. Clearly excited about being interviewed by UNHCR, she’s exuberant and outgoing, her face only turning sombre when she recalls refugee friends she left behind in the Beldangi camp in eastern Nepal."

  1. Great article! Ironically (or perhaps not so ironically), God brought a deaf Nepali widow into my life last week. She is living with her son and his wife. I am very humbled to meet her - the meek of the earth. The young woman in the article is outstanding and I am so glad that she found a job & so quickly. You go girl! - Rich
