Inside a South Korean UNIFIL barracks near Tyre, peacekeepers sit playing with deaf and mute Lebanese children, communicating with each other only in sign language.Over the next month, the Korean doctors visited the village to monitor the Soueid's health, and in doing so, came across four other children suffering from similar conditions.The contingent's doctors were taught how to determine which could be treated in Lebanon and which would have to be flown to Korea for treatment. Two of the five children are set to leave for South Korea in June to receive treatment, according to Dr. Kim Kinam, an ENT specialist contracted by South Korea's Inha University Hospital to help the children.
