Keren, 9 June 2010 –  The chairman of the Eritrean National Association of the Blind, Mr. Dawit Fisehaye, said that the backward perception of the society towards visual-impaired citizens has changed as a result of the continued lectures and campaigns.

In a meeting he held in Keren town with administrators, heads of ministry’s branch offices, members of the Association, village elders and religious leaders, Mr. Dawit indicated that visual-impaired persons could become self-supporting and productive as long as conducive ground is created to them.  

He further pointed out that a number of vision-impaired nationals are engaged in the teaching profession and in various ministries, which attest to the contribution of disabled nationals. Noting that the Association is providing vocational training courses, besides supporting them to engage in different ventures, he called on the general public to send visual-impaired children to school.

The Administrator of Keren, Mr. Tekie Keleta, commended the Association for its vigorous endeavors in advocating the rights of blind persons and improving their standard of living. He further explained that supporting and caring for disabled citizens is the responsibility of the entire society.
