Disabled people are among the most marginalised groups in the Middle East and North Africa. Thanks to low awareness and a culture of shame, disabled children are sometimes hidden away and never schooled or integrated into society. SAT-7 challenges these attitudes and seeks to help people with disabilities reach their God-given potential. Productions have included a game show featuring disabled and able-bodied teenagers, documentaries and award-winning public information spots. Fifteen Minutes with Jesus is a major new 56-episode Bible talk show for the deaf community. Presenter Fr Jean Marie Chami teaches the audience a new sign in each episode before a biblical talk and conversation in sign language with deaf guests.
‘Fifteen Minutes with Jesus‘ is a major new series for deaf audiences – part of SAT-7’s mission to help disabled viewers reach their God-given potential.
