Life is moving closer to normal in some countries as COVID-19 restrictions ease and businesses reopen. In others, the struggle to survive continues. More coronavirus coverage here.

Global Deaf ministry DOOR International is adapting once again to meet unique needs triggered by the pandemic. As described here, DOOR teams shifted focus a few months ago to make vital COVID-19 information accessible to Deaf communities. Now, they’re adjusting to meet critical physical needs.

“We launched the 30 for 30 campaign recognizing that, in some of the countries where we serve, $30 can actually feed a Deaf family for 30 days,” DOOR International CEO/President Rob Myers says.

“DOOR’s main mission is doing Bible translation in sign language and doing evangelism and church planting. But you can’t do those things within communities where people are starving.”
