The lecture meeting of Watanabe Yoichi (渡部陽一), a well-known battlefield cameraman who is continuing taking a photograph on the battlefields, such as Iraq and Afghanistan, will be held in the Prefecture Cultural Center in Wakayama-shi on May 10. Interpreting provided.

The Prefecture Association of the Deaf is raising the fund for building the institution not only for the Deaf including the Deaf elderly people, but also persons with multiple handicaps. They sponsor the event, planning to contribute the proceeds from this lecture meeting to the fund.

Fukuda Mieko (福田美枝子), president of the association explains, "In order for a Deaf person to take communication, sign language and writing are required. A Deaf person will be isolated if he lives in the same institution as a hearing person. We are appealing by saying that you come to our lecture meeting and help us in making the fund of an institution since a Deaf person can live happily in an institution only for the Deaf."

The manager was fantastic the entire way through the planning and up to the day of the event. She hand held my parents and I through all the decision making and customization, and never pressured us into doing anything we weren't interested in- only offered advice and ideas.
