Deaf Defy is a Deaf-led team of language acquisition specialists, audiologists and interpreters who share a passion for improving the lives of Deaf refugee children.
In 2017, we launched the world's first Deaf-led humanitarian aid mission, during which we worked around the clock to provide sign language counseling services, hearing tests and hearing aids to hundreds of children in need. In 2018 and 2019, we worked in the refugee camps of both Lebanon and Jordan, armed with triple the number of resources. We worked until our supplies ran dry.
When COVID-19 put a halt to our 2020 mission, we realized the need for even more fundraising and planning, as our next mission would now be serving all the patients missed during the first year of the pandemic.
Our next mission is currently scheduled for June and July of 2022. With your help, we aim to serve and empower over 200 children in the refugee camps of Jordan!
