Earthquake experience by a visually impaired person(視覚障害者と地震)


Today we brought you an interview with a visually impaired person from Sudan. Mohamed Omar Abdin, the head director of CAPEDS (Committee for Assisting and Promoting Education of the Disabled in Sudan). It’s a Japan-based non-profit organization which supports the education for the disabled in Sudan.
In March 2011, right before the 3.11 Earthquake, we welcomed Mai Namiki, CAPEDS secretary general, to our studio and heard about their organization.→ Click!
Then finally we could hear the voice of its representative.

Click the player above and learn about his earthquake experience! He talks in Japanese but Arlene translates his words into Japanese in between. He has studied in UK before but he prefers to speak Japanese than speaking English.

BTW, Abdin’s wife gave birth to a baby right in the middle of the aftershocks. A baby was born on March 25, 2011 but her mother had to be prepared for the delivering right after the earthquake. He’ll tell you about the story of “earthquake, childbirth, lost in translation experienced by the visually impaired”  So don’t miss it next Saturday on July 2!
