The lasting impact of being able to communicate

Building friendships for the first time.

I just returned from a visit to World Concern's Hear School in Bangladesh and wanted to share some photos with you. I hope they make you smile, and encourage you that your gift is making a lasting difference in the lives of hearing impaired children.

Let me say first of all that Bangladesh is a difficult place to be. My heart ached as I walked through crowded, filthy slums holding hands with barefoot children who have never been to school.

But I felt such a sence of hope and joy when I visited the Hear School and saw children who would otherwise spend their lives unable to communicate, now learning to speak, listen, and build relationships. Thank you for being a part of this amazing project!
