Deaf School in Haiti

A Rochester, New York woman is headed to Haiti this Friday with plans to start a school for deaf children. Tara Thorn is a graduate of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at the Rochester Institute of Technology and has visited Haiti more than once. The massive earthquake that rocked the country in January destroyed two schools for the deaf near Port au Prince. Thorn's aunt and uncle, who served in Haiti as missionaries for more than three decades, are helping with the project.
