Reflections from my backyard while Hurricane Matthew is killing my country Haiti both softly and violently… Jo-Ann Lafontant from Port-au-Prince reflects on the work of the Disability Rights Fund during the deadly and devastating storm on the southern coast of Haiti.
If you were to see me, you would not notice right away that I am Deaf and Blind. If you saw me signing, you would correctly assume that I am Deaf; if you saw me using my white cane, you would correctly assume that I am Blind. But when people see me using both, they are stumped because so little is known about DeafBlindness and so few of the world’s one billion people with disabilities are DeafBlind. But we do exist.
