From Ål to the Philippines and Myanmar
DMI Norway received the following request some time ago: “I want to visit DMI work in the Philippines and Myanmar for five months as a volunteer helper. Is it possible?”
Tarja Riitta Wroldsen got obviously yes to his question. She took five months off from teaching job to assist DMI work as a volunteer. 1 March 2015 she travelled to the Philippines. She visited several places where DMI operates schools, student homes, local income-generating projects and churches. Tarja, who is deaf, lived and lived with deaf where she came, and she took part in the local work. In mid-May, she went on to Myanmar, a country where it is expected that there are about 1.5 million deaf. At DMI a large congregation for the deaf in Yangon. Tarja went on to Kalay, north-west of the country. Where is DMI a school for the deaf. It is one of only three schools for the deaf in this country. The deaf Tarja met, had a prayer: “We hope DMI will send more deaf volunteers to help us here!”
