17 September 2014

Around the world deafblind children are missing out on the support they need. Many miss out on the opportunity to attend school, access healthcare and the opportunity to learn and earn a living as adults. They also face discrimination and fear of their disability. As a result, many deafblind children are shut away from society, often with only close family members knowing about their existence. It doesn't need to be this way and with the right help and support deafblind children don't have to miss out.

Sense International has launched a new report today sharing the experiences of the deafblind children around the world. We are campaigning to ensure that deafblind people aren't overlooked in international aid efforts and have the same opportunities as everyone else.

To help us spread the word we are asking people to share what they are afraid of missing out on using the #FOMO hashtag on social media.
