TV presentation in Seoul, Korea

Fr Cyril talks about his life, work and his challenges on talk show TV in Seoul Korea. You don’t need to understand sign language to see the emotions and inspiration he provokes from the hosts and viewers. Also how he communicates with interpreters using hand-on sign language is valuable to see. Communication and deafblindness are NO barriers to success, only our perceptions and ability to listen and learn from ourselves and our personal experiences can either stop us or launch us into life.
He talks about the ‘gift of disability’ to help us understand courage, patience and perseverance in life and overcome our personal challenges.
(Hopefully we can get an English translation soon)
