About us

The WFD Regional Secretariat for Asia (WFDRSA) was established 1983, with the encouragement and request by the late Dr. Yerker Andersson. The office was first set up in Japan and was supported by Japanese Federation of the Deaf, and had been running in Japan for 27 years until 2015. The office of the WFDRSA was transferred to Macau after the 27th WFD RSA Representative Meeting at Turkey, and it has then been supported by Macau Deaf Association.

All the years, the WFDRSA endeavors to develop cooperation and solidarity among WFD members in the Asia region, and to improve the situation of deaf persons by stimulating exchange of knowledge and experience concerning issues common to the region for the history of the establishment of WFDRSA.
