The Deaf Unit receives the second semester
The Deaf Unit of the Episcopal/ Anglican Church in Egypt received students from the elementary and preparatory stages at the beginning of the second semester amidst strict preventive measures in light of the restrictions imposed by the Corona pandemic.
The Episcopal/Anglican Church stated in a statement today: We organized an entertainment party for students and distributed gifts to them, amid a commitment from teachers and students to wear masks throughout the school day, use alcohol and wash hands frequently.
The Deaf unit is concerned with the educational aspect as it is concerned with the professional, psychological, and entertainment aspects as well to teach deaf students to read and write and all the curricula of the government school to ensure that they obtain the government certificate.
The Deaf unit works to rehabilitate and educate the deaf and their families and support communication in sign language to ensure the improvement of the scientific, health, social and economic level in order to enable them to be self-reliant and integrate into society through academic education, vocational training, activities, trips, and conferences.
The Deaf Unit was established in 1982 under the umbrella of the Episcopal/Anglican Church, and it was declared in Social Affairs under the number 4014 of 1993.
