Crossing Divides: Austrian group helps deaf refugees learn sign language

Many refugees face problems of isolation, but things can be particularly challenging for those who are deaf.

The Austrian organisation, Equalizent, based in Vienna, provides courses in sign language and written German for asylum seekers and refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran.

Some are learning sign language for the first time in their lives.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 1-4


[center]"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
