Once again FESOCE celebrated the Deafblind Awarness International Week simultaneously with the Helen Keller Foundation Deafblind Awareness Week.

In June 1984 former United States of America President Ronald Reagan recognized Deafblind as a disability. Every year since that date and during the last week of the month of June, the Heller Keller Services for the Blind celebrates a series of activities in order to acquire some exposure and to socially conscience the general public over this disability.

The members of FESOCE also planned several actions all over Spain with the idea of reaching the general public and show them the problematic we face every day.
