Today deaf people around the world celebrated International Deaf Day as part of Deaf Week. We wanted to celebrate in Phnom Penh but it was difficult because of the pandemic. The government yesterday just reissued a directive that no more than fifteen people can come together. We had planned to have three groups of fifteen but it was difficult to keep people from just coming together and enjoying each other as they have in the past. They have not seen each other for almost a year.
