New center for the Deaf community due to establish in Miyagi Prefecture

March 13, 2013

Based on the lesson which the Deaf community was unable to get information but isolated by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, Miyagi Prefecture determined the plan to establish the information center for the Deaf in the 2014 fiscal year.

The prefecture association of the Deaf and other concerned groups had requested the prefecture to establish the center, and the interested organizations had formed the preparatory committee in September, last year, and discussed the project.

The Government positions establishment of the information dissemination institution for the Deaf/deaf in important measures.

According to Miyagi prefecture officials, eight prefectures, including Miyagi, Akita, Yamagata, Fukushima, etc., have not established a center for the Deaf community.
