Sense International Romania will celebrate December 3, the international Day of People with Disabilities, by organising various activities with children and young people with deafblindness and multisensory impairments from our partner schools. We will keep you posted about these, as they develop. Now, we want to tell you about the initiative of our colleague, Etelka Czondi, who decided this year to donate her birthday – December 3 – through Galantom, to children and young people with deafblindness. v
For donations, please access GALATOM.
December 3 is the International Day of People with Disabilities.
December 3 is my birthday.
This year, I will NOT turn 40 years old, this year I will turn 18 + 22 years of experience in working with people with disabilities.
I have spent the past 11 year together with people with deafblindness in Romania, working for Sense International Romania. For those who don’t know, a person with deafblindness has both visual and hearing impairments.
Because it is a special year, I decided to donate my birthday to children and young people with deafblindness in Romania!
Why should you make me such a beautiful present?
Because I wish for early intervention for newborn babies with sensory impairments to be available to all those who need it!
Because I wish for all children with deafblindness to have the chance of high quality education.
Because I wish for young people with deafblindness to be able to find a job, so as to live an independent life.
So please, this year, make a special present for me and contribute to our efforts to create a world where all people with deafblindness can be active and equal members of the society.
The funds raised will be used in our projects for children and young people with deafblindness in Romania.
