U.S. Embassy N’Djamena invited 40 high school and university students to watch the movie entitled “The Miracle Worker,” which is about the 20th Century American Hellen Keller, who overcame deafness and blindness to become an advocate for people with physical disabilities. Acting Public Affairs Officer David Rochford opened the event with a short introduction about the movie and also co-led the discussion at the end of screening with his colleague Djasra Ratebaye.

During the discussion and Q&A, the audience compared the situation of the people with special needs between Chad and the United States, “Thank you for giving us this opportunity to watch this important movie and to compare our experience with the U.S. Maybe some of us have brothers or sisters of special needs. Now we know how to treat them,” one of the participants observed.
