The National Disabilities Sports Meet will be held in Iyo-shi, Ehime Prefecture on October 28-30, 2017.
As Deaf athletes will be expected in participate in the event, 22 local female volunteers got together at the City Health Welfare Center and made 100 small white boards for communication by means of writing on August 11. (photo)
One of the volunteers explained, "When even if you don't use sign language, you see a Deaf person who may have something trouble and help him/her with the writing board."
