According to statistics, every ninth Ukrainian is losing a sense of hearing and often does not know about it. Over 250,000 Ukrainians speak in sign language, but it is not taught in schools even on a basic level.
“We want to convey to all people who cannot hear and those who are losing sense of hearing: “We hear you! We feel you!” One day, everyone will know how to say “hello” and “thank you” in sign language and everyone who is losing hearing will find understanding and support,” the message says.
